Erratum to: J Transl Med (2016) 14:236 DOI:10.1186/s12967-016-0995-5

Unfortunately, the original version of this article [1] contained errors in the main text and in Tables 2 and 3. Tables 2 and 3 were included incorrectly. The correct Tables 2 and 3 have been updated in the original article and are also included correctly in this erratum.

Table 2 Baseline characteristics of hemodialysis patients presented as groups according to MBL levels
Table 3 Associations of MBL levels with cardiovascular events and cardiac events in 107 chronic hemodialysis patients

Additionally, the following section has been corrected:

However, after adjustment MBL for these confounders levels remained associated with cardiovascular events, indicating a direct and independent effect of MBL on cardiovascular risk.

Should read:

However, after adjustment for these confounders, MBL levels remained associated with cardiovascular events, indicating a direct and independent effect of MBL on cardiovascular risk.
