Dear Editior-in-Chief,

I am grateful to the renowned World Journal of Gastroenterology for publishing our manuscript about hepatoma radiosensitivity in volume 11 issue 26, page 4098-4101[1]. Since this paper appeared online first, it was widely considered. Up to date, it has been cited four times in various journals covered by Science Citation Index[2-4], and the click count and download count added up to 459 and 163[1], respectively. Some scientists from Australia and Germany frequently sent me letters to ask for original data to be cited, but a fatal mistake made them arduous. The correspondence author’s e-mail address should be, but not I sincerely expected your editors could rephrase and upload it to your online data base.
