The original version of this article [1], published on 5 April 2016, contains a mistake. In the ‘Role of pH stabilisation’ section, “intracellular pH” has been incorrectly abbreviated as “pHe”. The correct abbreviation is “pHi”. The affected sentence with the correct abbreviation is given below.
  • The metabolic adaption accumulates different ionic exchangers at the tumor cell membrane to maintain intracellular pH (pHi) (Fig. 2).

The figure which is cited in the above sentence can be reviewed in the original article.
