We, editors of The Pan African Medical Journal hereby notify readers of the retraction of the article “Detection of ESBL among ampc producing enterobacteriaceae using inhibitor-based method” by Bakthavatchalu S et al. [1] published in 2013. It has come to the attention of the editorial team that this article shares striking similarities with the article “Comparison of the boronic acid disk potentiation test and cefepime-clavulanic acid method for the detection of ESBL among AmpC-producing Enterobacteriaceae.” by Shoorashetty RM et al.[[2]], published in the Indian Journal of Medical Microbioly in 2011. An internal investigation has raised sufficient evidence of plagiarism; as such, we retract this article from the literature in accordance with guidelines and best editorial practices from the Committee on Publication Ethics. We apologize to our audience about this unfortunate situation.
