Retraction note: To the Editor-in-Chief.
Based on the investigation by the authorities of Warsaw Medical University, I have recently become aware that the majority of the data presented in the paper "Application of sulforaphane - does it lead to improvement of islet graft survival after warm and/or cold ischemia", by Sołowiej E, Sołowiej J, Kasprzycka-Guttman T, Rowiński W published in the Annals of Transplantation 2004; 9(3): 68-71 were falsified by the first author of this paper. I also have to inform the readers that Professor Teresa Kasprzycka-Guttman was added as the co-author without her consent and against her wish. Therefore, as the former chairman of the department where this work was carried out, I would like to retract this publication. I regret this unfortunate occurrence and apologize sincerely to the editorial staff at the journal and to its readers for any inconvenience this may have caused.
