Notice of Retraction
The authors and the editors are issuing a retraction of the article entitled “Modelling the effect of Chlamydia trachomatis testing on the prevalence of infection in England: what impact can we expect from the National Chlamydia Screening Programme?”, which was published online in Sexually Transmitted Infections on June 26, 2012 (DOI:10.1136/sextrans-2011-050126).
The authors noticed a coding error as a result of ongoing work using the model described in the article. They are working on a revised model and intend to publish a corrected version of the article when it is finalised. The editors of the journal, in agreement with the authors, have decided that the original version of the article should therefore be retracted.
