The Editors-in-Chief have retracted this article. After publication, concerns were raised regarding potential image overlap within the published figures. Specifically:
In Fig. 4A, the HBP images for the Naive and 14 d groups appear to contain an overlapping area.
In Fig. 5B, there appears to be overlap between the Sham-14 d and HBP-7 d, as well as NMP-1 d and BP-14 d images.
In Fig. 9A, the western blot images representing MYD88-1 d and p-IκBα-7 d, as well as p-IκBα-Naive and p-p65-7 d appear highly similar.
The authors have stated that these errors occurred due to mishandling of the data. The Editors-in-Chief therefore no longer have confidence in the presented data.
All authors agree to this retraction.
