A Corrigendum on
Asymptomatic Malaria Infection Is Maintained by a Balanced Pro- and Anti-inflammatory Response

by Frimpong, A., Amponsah, J., Adjokatseh, A. S., Agyemang, D., Bentum-Ennin, L., Ofori, E. A., et al. (2020) Front. Microbiol. 11:559255. doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2020.559255

In the original article, there was a mistake in Figure 1C as published. The graph provided was a duplicate of Figure 1E. The corrected Figure 1 and caption appear below.

FIGURE 1

Figure 1. Profile of pro-inflammatory mediators during microscopic and submicroscopic malaria. Scatter plot graphs are plotted showing the median fluorescence intensities (MFI) of (A–F) TNF-α, IL-6, IFN-γ, IL-17A, IL-12p70, and Granzyme B in plasma samples collected from uninfected controls (n = 18), patients with microscopic asymptomatic malaria (n = 38) and submicroscopic malaria (n = 22). Plots show median and interquartile ranges. Significant differences are denoted by *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001, ns = not significant.

The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.
