Following the publication of the article, it was brought to the editors’ attention that that the data reported in the article are very similar to that reported the authors' related publication below: miR-338-3p Is Down-Regulated by Hepatitis B Virus X and Inhibits Cell Proliferation by Targeting the 3'-UTR Region of CyclinD1 Fu X, Tan D, Hou Z, Hu Z, Liu G.
