The article, “Umbilical cord blood-based gene signatures related to prenatal major depressive disorder”[1] which appears in Volume 98, Issue 28 of Medicine, is being retracted over concerns regarding unsuitable use of the GEO differential expression tool and the resulting unsupported conclusion that “This bioinformatic analysis demonstrated immune-mediated mechanisms might play a fatal role in abnormalities in fetal gene expression profiles caused by prenatal MDD.”
