Abstract

Correction to "Liu LP, Sheng XP, Shuai TK, Zhao YX, Li B, Li YM. Helicobacter pylori promotes invasion and metastasis of gastric cancer by enhancing heparanase expression. World J Gastroenterol 2018; 24: 4565-4577 [PMID: 30386106 DOI: 10.3748/wjg.v24.i40.4565]." In this article, we have identified some of the images in Figure 2A, C, E, G, and I are identical to the images in Figures 1B, 2A, 3B, 3E, and 3G of another paper entitled "Liu L, Zhao Y, Fan G, Shuai T, Li B, Li Y. Helicobacter pylori infection enhances heparanase leading to cell proliferation via mitogenactivated protein kinase signalling in human gastric cancer cells.", which was published by us in the Molecular Medicine Reports in December, 2018 [PMID: 30320396 DOI: 10.3892/mmr.2018.9558]. The reason why we asked to replace the pictures was that when we were simultaneously preparing to submit our two different articles to the World Journal of Gastroenterology (WJG) and Molecular Medicine Reports, we uploaded the wrong pictures to the WJG, which were same as those submitted to the Molecular Medicine Reports. We apologize for this negligence and any inconvenience that this may cause. We would be grateful if you could replace the wrong pictures with the correct ones attached.

Keywords: Correction, Replace the wrong pictures, Gastric cancer, Helicobacter pylori

Core Tip: This manuscript is to correct the images in Figure 2A, C, E, G, and I of "Liu LP, Sheng XP, Shuai TK, Zhao YX, Li B, Li YM. Helicobacter pylori promotes invasion and metastasis of gastric cancer by enhancing heparanase expression. World J Gastroenterol 2018; 24: 4565-4577 [PMID: 30386106 DOI: 10.3748/wjg.v24.i40.4565]."
