Correction to: Respir Res (2019) 20:21 https://doi.org/10.1186/s12931-019-0976-3

Following publication of the original article [1], and upon recent review of the datasets of this manuscript, the authors have discovered some inconsistencies/inaccuracies in the number of animals per group reported in some figure legends (Figs. 3b, 5 and 6).

These are corrected as below:

  • Fig. 3b: Fasting insulin levels at 9 (dams fed low fat diet, n = 14; or, high fat diet, n = 10) and 12 weeks (dams fed low fat diet, n = 12; or, high fat diet, n = 12).

  • Fig. 5: Lung responsiveness to methacholine (dams fed low fat diet, n = 12; or, high fat diet, n = 11).

  • Fig. 6: Serum levels of cytokines or adipokines in offspring born from first (dams fed low fat diet, n = 5–10; or, high fat diet, n = 5–10) or second (dams fed low fat diet, n = 10–12; or, high fat diet, n = 3–5) pregnancies.

The authors apologise for any inconvenience caused.
