Updates & Corrections

  • Correction 08 March 2019: In view of the fact that the authors of ‘A homing system targets therapeutic T cells to brain cancer’ (H. Samaha et al. Nature 561, 331–337; 2018) are retracting their report, Michael Platten wishes to retract the News & Views article ‘T cells engineered to home in on brain cancer’ (M. Patten Nature 561, 319–320; 2018), which dealt with this study and was based on the accuracy and reproducibility of their data.
