In an article by Kinnaird et al (Circ Res. 2004;94:678-685), the authors made an error in the stated number of animals assessed and in the calculated percentage of animals that underwent auto-amputation. The authors incorrectly stated: “Under narcosis, 12-week-old Balb/C mice (na5 per group)…” The correct number of animals is 4 per group.
The authors also incorrectly stated: “Mice receiving control media experienced severe ischemic damage resulting in a 60% incidence of auto-amputation by day 28. However, mice receiving mMSCs displayed less ischemic damage with a 20% auto-amputation rate.” The correct numbers are 50% auto-amputation rate in the control group and 0% rate in the media group.
