Erratum: Changes in circulating microRNAs after radiochemotherapy in head and neck cancer patients

The Original Article was published on 28 December 2013

Erratum

After the publication of this work [1], a few points were brought to our attention:

The clinical data of patient 2 are incorrect. A revised version of Table 1 [1] showing the corrected patient characteristics is presented here. Consequently, the description of the patient cohort in the Materials and Methods section is incorrect. The correct description is: “Plasma miRNA analysis was performed on 18 HNSCC patients treated with local X-ray-irradiation using a linear accelerator […].

Table 1 Patient characteristics

17 out of 18 patients received concurrent chemotherapy (13 patients received 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) plus mitomycin C (MMC) [21], 3 patients MMC and 1 patient cisplatin weekly)”.

There is a typing error in the Results section [1] concerning the p value of the up-regulation of miR-425-5p. The correct sentence is:

“The qRTPCR assays confirmed an up-regulation of miR-425-5p with a p value close to the significance level (p = 0.052) […]”.

The corrections do not affect any results or conclusions of the published work.
