This paper was published in the Journal of Herbmed Pharmacology in 2019 (doi: 10.15171/jhp.2019.47) (1). Based on an email received from the team of young researchers recently, we were informed that the results of this article (some figures and diagrams) have been published in several similar articles (2-5), which are considered ethical misconduct. This issue was investigated by the editorial team of the Journal of Herbmed Pharmacology. As a result, based on the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) guidelines, the editors decided to retract this paper. The authors were informed and advised on this serious ethical breach. This article has been retracted at the request of the corresponding author. The retracted article will remain online to maintain the scholarly record, but it will be watermarked on each page as ‘retracted’.
