A journal has accepted the sixth retraction of a paper co-authored by Silvia Bulfone-Paus, the Research Centre Borstel announced late last week. Borstel has been investigating allegations that two of Bulfone-Paus’s former postdocs manipulated images.

The paper, in the Scandinavian Journal of Immunology, is titledEnhanced Inhibition of Tumour Growth and Metastasis, and Induction of Antitumour Immunity by IL-2-IgG2b Fusion Protein.” In it, the scientists claimed to have found a way to make certain mouse tumors more susceptible to cancer vaccines. The paper has been cited three times since its publication in 2002, according to Thomson Scientific’s Web of Knowledge.
