Alfaqih, Khader, Al-Dwairi, Alzoubi, Al-Shboul, and Hatim: Correction: Lower Levels of Serum Adiponectin and the T Allele of rs1501299 of the ADIPOQ Gene Are Protective against Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome in Jordan
Korean J Fam Med 2018;39:108-113
There was an error in the article, “Lower levels of serum adiponectin and the T allele of rs1501299 of the ADIPOQ gene are protective against polycystic ovarian syndrome in Jordan.” [1] After the publication of this work [1], authors noticed that they had made an error in the title. “Lower” was written incorrectly in the title, so “Lower” should be replaced by “Higher”. A revised version of the title is given below.

Higher Levels of Serum Adiponectin and the T Allele of rs1501299 of the ADIPOQ Gene Are Protective against Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome in Jordan

And there was one more mistake in the “Results” section of the “Abstract”. The Results section reads “The GT genotype of rs1501299 increased the risk of PCOS (P<0.001; OR, 5.46; 95% CI, 2.42–12.33) and increased the risk of PCOS by three-fold (P<0.001; OR, 3.00; 95% CI, 1.36–6.60) relative to the TT genotype. The GG genotype increased the risk of PCOS as well (P<0.001; OR, 3:00; 95% CI, 1.36–6.60).”
The correct statement should read “The GT genotype of rs1501299 increased the risk of PCOS (P<0.001; OR, 5.46; 95% CI, 2.42–12.33) relative to the TT genotype. The GG genotype increased the risk of PCOS as well (P<0.001; OR, 3:00; 95% CI, 1.36–6.60).”
