In this article (Mol Cancer Ther 2002 1(14):1243-53), published in the December 1, 2002 issue of Molecular Cancer Therapeutics (1), the same images were used to represent multiple treatment conditions in Fig. 4A and B:
  1. The same image was used to represent treatment of L3.6pl (Fig. 4A) and Mia PaCa-2 (Fig. 4B) with 0.6 mg/kg PS-341 as well as treatment of Mia PaCa-2 with 0.8 mg/kg PS-341 (Fig. 4B).

  2. The same image was used to represent treatment of L3.6pl (Fig. 4A) and Mia PaCa-2 (Fig. 4B) with 1.0 mg/kg PS-341.

  3. The same image was used to represent drug control in L3.6pl (Fig. 4A) and Mia PaCa-2 (Fig. 4B).

The authors have corrected the figures and regret their errors. The corrected version is displayed on the previous page.

The errors in the aforementioned articles were caused in large part by inadequate oversight of data management. In an effort to prevent such errors from occurring in the future, the PI (DJM) has implemented a new data management policy that is designed to limit or eliminate errors in future publications and can be provided upon request ( The authors note that the conclusions and interpretationof the data in these articles are unaltered by the errors that are now corrected.
