Today's Wall Street Journal has a very interesting article on Cancer research and the lead line grabbed my attention. It wasn't in the OCF news feed yet, but then I'm on EST and OCF is on PST. so just consider this a sneak preview
Quote:
Last year, cancer researcher Robert Mandic got news no scientist wants to hear.

After publishing a paper on a rare head-and-neck cancer, he learned the cells he had been studying were instead cervical cancer. He notified the journal Oral Oncology, which retracted the article.

There may be a pay wall problem with the url since I'm a paid subscriber so it may not show you the full article unless you have the right cookie on your computer or else sign in as a subscriber. So I have now put the whole article below.
