A corrigendum on
Biomarkers and Algorithms for the Diagnosis of Vitamin B12 Deficiency

by Hannibal, L., Lysne, V., Bjørke-Monsen, A.-L., Behringer, S., Grünert, S. C., Spiekerkoetter, U., et al. (2016). Front. Mol. Biosci. 3:27. doi: 10.3389/fmolb.2016.00027

There was an error in one sentence citing work by (Moore et al., 2012): “While a small subset of dementias examined in some of these studies responded favorably to vitamin B12 supplementation, no benefit was observed in patients with an established, pre-existing deficiency of vitamin B12 (Moore et al., 2012).”

The correct sentence is: “While a small subset of dementias examined in some of these studies responded favorably to vitamin B12 supplementation, benefit was only observed in patients with an established, pre-existing deficiency of vitamin B12 (Moore et al., 2012).” The authors apologize for the mistake. This error does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way.
