Author Correction: Impact of daily high dose oral vitamin D therapy on the inflammatory markers in patients with COVID 19 disease

The Original Article was published on 20 May 2021

Correction to: Scientific Reports https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-021-90189-4, published online 20 May 2021


The original version of this Article contained errors.


In Table 4, the Variable order “LDH (U/l)”, “IL6 (pg/ml)” and “CRP (mg/l)” were incorrectly given as “CRP(mg/l)”, “LDH(U/l)” and “IL6(pg/ml)” respectively. The correct and incorrect Variable order appears below.


Incorrect:

Variable Pre (n = 15) Post (n = 15) Pre vs Post
Mean ± SD or median (IQR) 95% CI of mean/median Mean ± SD or median (IQR) 95% CI of mean/median t or z statistic p value
CRP (mg/l) 385 ± 206# 271–499* 254 ± 84# 208–300* − 3 0.007
LDH (U/l) 33 ± 35# 14–52* 3 ± 4# 1–5* − 3 0.004
IL6 (pg/ml) 57 (22–96) 22–96 8 (3–16) 3–16 3 0.0003

Correct:

Variable Pre (n = 15) Post (n = 15) Pre vs Post
Mean ± SD or median (IQR) 95% CI of mean/median Mean ± SD or median (IQR) 95% CI of mean/median t or z statistic p value
LDH (U/l) 385 ± 206# 271–499* 254 ± 84# 208–300* − 3 0.007
IL 6 (pg/ml) 33 ± 35# 14–52* 3 ± 4# 1–5* − 3 0.004
CRP (mg/l) 57 (22–96) 22–96 8 (3–16) 3–16 3 0.0003

Furthermore in Table 5, the Variable order “LDH (U/l)”, “IL6 (pg/ml)” and “CRP (mg/l)” was incorrectly given as “CRP(mg/l)”, “LDH(U/l)” and “IL6(pg/ml)” respectively. The “Post (n=15), 95% CI of mean/median” value for the Variable “CRP (mg/l)” was incorrect. The correct and incorrect Variable order and corresponding values appear below.


Incorrect:

Variable Pre (n = 15) Post (n = 15) Pre vs Post
Mean ± SD or median (IQR) 95% CI of mean/median Mean ± SD or median (IQR) 95% CI of mean/median t or z statistic p value
CRP (mg/l) 257 ± 106# 198–316* 235 ± 88# 186–284* − 0.9 0.4
LDH (U/l) 4 (2–9) 2–9 1 (0–9) 0–9 49 0.6
IL6 (pg/ml) 8 (2–19) 2–19 5 (2–8) 2–9 42 0.3

Correct:

Variable Pre (n = 15) Post (n = 15) Pre vs Post
Mean ± SD or median (IQR) 95% CI of mean/median Mean ± SD or median (IQR) 95% CI of mean/median t or z statistic p value
LDH (U/l) 257 ± 106# 198–316* 235 ± 88# 186–284* − 0.9 0.4
IL 6 (pg/ml) 4 (2–9) 2–9 1 (0–9) 0–9 49 0.6
CRP (mg/l) 8 (2–19) 2–19 5 (2–8) 2–8 42 0.3
