Corrigendum to “Effect of Selenium-Enriched Garlic Oil against Cytotoxicity Induced by OX-LDL in Endothelial Cells”

In the article titled “Effect of Selenium-Enriched Garlic Oil against Cytotoxicity Induced by OX-LDL in Endothelial Cells” [1], the ECV-304 cell line has been found to be cross-contaminated by T-24, which is a bladder carcinoma cell line and not of human umbilical vein endothelial cell (HUVEC) origin [2, 3]. Hence, it is not an appropriate cell line to study endothelial cell biology.

The authors said they asked a local hospital for HUVECs and could not find in their records whether or not the type provided was indeed ECV-304 cells.
