The article titled “Dendritic Cells and Leishmania Infection: Adding Layers of Complexity to a Complex Disease” [1] was found to contain material from published work without citation, as follows: (i)Dong Liu and Jude E. Uzonna, “Macrophages and dendritic cells and its influence on the host immune response,” Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology, 2:83, 2012: (a)In the paragraph beginning with “Several reports show…”(b)In the paragraphs beginning with “Early studies demonstrated…where they present parasite-derived antigen to T cells,” “The production of IL-12 by APCs … downregulate IL-12p40 production in response to L. major infection,” “Baldwin et al. found…infected C57BL/6 mice,” and “It is not clear whether…protective or pathogenic T cell responses.”(c)In the paragraph beginning with “DCs express a wide variety…immunity against leishmaniasis.”(d)In the paragraphs beginning with “Given the fact that…multi-species/strain comparison” and “A more comprehensive…activation of the adaptive immune system.”(ii)Olga Brandonisio, Rosa Spinelli, and Maria Pepe: “Dendritic cells in Leishmania infection,” Microbes and Infection, vol. 6, Issue 15, pp. 1402–1409, December 2004, (a)In the paragraph beginning with “Dendritic cells (DCs) are a family of professional antigen-presenting cells (APCs)…a wide range of microbial stimuli.”(iii)Von Stebut, “Cutaneous Leishmania infection: progress in pathogenesis research and experimental therapy,” Experimental Dermatology, 16: 340–346, 2007, (a)In the sentence beginning with “Infection with Leishmania parasites…after the infection is healed” and in the paragraph beginning with “Current paradigms…activation and killing of parasites.”(iv)Rafael de Freitas e Silva, Maria Carolina Accioly Brelaz de Castro, Antônio Mauro Rezende, and Valéria Rêgo Alves Pereira, “Targeting dendritic cells as a good alternative to combat Leishmania spp.,” Frontiers in Immunology, 26 November 2014, (a)In the paragraph beginning with “Nowadays, different in silico approaches…one or all Leishmania species that cause CL.”
