Correction to: npj Genomic Medicine https://doi.org/10.1038/s41525-017-0035-2, published online 23 October 2017
In the original published version of the Article, the ‘Population’ section included the statement that “the local Institutional Review Boards (IRB) at each clinical center approved the study. The methods were performed in accordance with relevant guidelines and regulations and approved by the Institut Pasteur IRB”. However, IRB approval was not granted because it was not necessary for this study. French regulations do not require IRB approval for studies which involve the reutilization of data provided that subjects provide written informed consent and retain the right to oppose the use of data at any time. All patients provided written informed consent for this study.
The statement was therefore updated to “Institutional Review Board approval was not required for this study. The methods were performed in accordance with relevant guidelines and regulations. For each patient, a parent or legal guardian provided written informed consent and retained the right to oppose the use of the data at any time” in the PDF and HTML versions of the Article.
