Erratum: New GOLD classification: longitudinal data on group assignment

The Original Article was published on 13 January 2014


No abstract.


After publication of this work [1], regrettably we noted that there were two errors in the illustrations, which were added when the paper was under revision and inadequately checked.

In Table 1, when describing the BODE data, the median value was 2, so instead of BODE index† 4 (0-6), the correct one is BODE index† 2 (0-6).

Figure two was plotted with incorrect percentages. The correct Figure two is shown next (see Figure 1).
