The Editors of Neural Regeneration Research (NRR) has retracted the publication entitled “Ultrasound guided neural stem cell transplantation through the lateral ventricle for treatment of cerebral palsy in children” (He et al., 2012; doi: 10.3969/j.issn.1673-5374.2012.32.007) following the concerns of duplicate publication according to NRR Policy on Article Retraction (https://journals.lww.com/nrronline/Pages/instructionsforauthors.aspx).
Figure 2 appears same as Figure 1 published in Chin J Interv Imaging Ther and the Discussion is heavily repetitive in its presentation (He et al., 2011).
In light of these concerns, the Editor-in-Chief has serious concerns about the fact that the image and main text in the study were previously published in Chin J Interv Imaging Ther (He et al., 2011).
SH verbally agreed with the retraction. ZL, SQ, XQ, DX, WJ, YS, ZY, TX could not be reached.
