Sarkar did not respond to the Cancer Research’s emails informing him of the retractions, Retraction Watch reports. 

The Scientist was the first to report Wayne State University’s 2015 findings of Sarkar’s research misconduct and its recommendation to retract 42 of his papers. Sarkar lost the infamous 2016 trial against PubPeer in 2016, which aimed to unmask the anonymous PubPeer users, even as the Michigan Court of Appeals stated that he could proceed to file a defamation suit.
