The article was found to report the same results, without citation, as the following published article: J. Jeremias, S. S. David, M. Toth, S. S. Witkin, “Induction of messenger RNA for the 70 kDa heat shock protein in HeLa cells and the human endocervix following exposure to semen: implications for antisperm antibody production and susceptibility to sexually transmitted infections,” Human Reproduction (1997) 12 (9): 1915–1919.
