The research article entitled “Vannala V, Balachandar, Kumaran K, Sigamani R. Biofilm formation on polytetrafluoroethylene coated versus uncoated brackets in a South Indian Population. Journal of Pharmacy Practice and Community Medicine. 2017;3(3):188-90. doi:10.5530/jppcm.2017.3.38 is retracted.[1] JPPCM received an email from the corresponding author, who asked if there was a way to edit or amend or withdraw the article that was previously published in JPPCM. The corresponding author and other authors of the manuscript were contacted by the JPPCM for clarification, and they stated that “By mistake, a portion of the literature review content was added in the result sections of the abstract as well as the text which was overlooked by us, and by mistake, it remained in our manuscript and got published.” The JPPCM journal editors agreed with authors’ decision and decided the manuscript to be retracted from the JPPCM website. JPPCM decision will be communicated to the corresponding author of the manuscript Sigamani et al., INDIA.
