Lin JN, Lin CL, Lin MC, et al. Risk of leukaemia in children infected with enterovirus: a nationwide, retrospective, population-based, Taiwanese-registry, cohort study. Lancet Oncol 2015; 16: 1335–43—In this Article, the title of figure 2 should have been “Kaplan-Meier analysis of cumulative incidence of leukaemia for children with or without enterovirus infection after accounting for death as the competing risk”. The subhazard ratio and 95% CI were included in error, and have been removed. This correction has been made to the online version as of Oct 1, 2015 and the printed version is correct.
Bagcchi S. Genetic mutations and outcomes in myeloma. Lancet Oncol 2015; 16: e434—In this News item, the fourth sentence of the third paragraph should read “Patients with CCND1 mutations had worse 2-year overall survival than those without (38·1% [95% CI 14–100] vs 80% [76–84]; p=0·005); similar outcomes were noted with alterations in the DNA repair pathways (TP53, ATM, ATR, and ZNFHX4 mutations)”. This correction has been made as of Oct 1, 2015.
Correction to Lancet Oncol 2015; 16: 1289 Lokody, I. International Liver Cancer Association Annual Conference. Lancet Oncol 2015; 16: 1289—In this News feature, the fourth sentence in the fourth paragraph on Liver transplants for patients with high risk HCC has been changed to read: “Of these, 17 had a liver transplant. The 5-year survival of these patients was superior to those high risk patients that did not have a liver transplant (82% vs 38%; p=0·033).” This correction has been made to the online version as of Oct 1, 2015 and the printed version is correct.
