The 2007 Journal of Clinical Oncology paper from Duke University's Anil Potti and his colleagues on pharmacogenomic strategies to treat people with advanced non–small-cell lung cancer has been retracted, reports Ivan Oransky at Retraction Watch. In the retraction, the article authors write that they "wish to retract this article because they have been unable to reproduce the experiments." Oransky notes that it is the journal's policy to have each author agree to the retraction and its wording and reports that Potti agreed to the retraction. Potti has also falsely said that he is a Rhodes Scholar and Oransky says that Potti "may have also faked an analysis of how breast cancer responds to chemotherapy."
