A Corrigendum on
Neuroinflammation and Cytokines in Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS): A Critical Review of Research Methods

by VanElzakker, M. B., Brumfield, S. A., and Lara Mejia, P. S. (2019). Front. Neurol. 9:1033. doi: 10.3389/fneur.2018.01033

In the original article, there were some minor mistakes in Table A1. Cytokine studies of ME/CFS as published. We have added clarifying or corrective details to several papers listed in the table, and we have added text to the figure legend to clarify its organization. We have corrected instances in which Blundell et al. (104) reported some studies' cytokine findings as “no significant difference,” when the original paper had actually reported those cytokines as below detection level. We have corrected instances in which cited papers made typographical or counting errors in their reported findings. We have added Stringer et al. (142), which was not included in the original table but should have been.

The corrected Table A1. Cytokine studies of ME/CFS appears below.

TABLE A1

Table A1. Cytokine studies of ME/CFS.

In the original article, the reference for Hardcastle et al. (2015) was incorrectly written as Hardcastle SL, Brenu EW, Johnston S, Nguyen T, Huth T, Ramos S, et al. Longitudinal analysis of immune abnormalities in varying severities of chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis patients. J Trans Med. (2015) 13:299. doi: 10.1186/s12967-015-0653-3

That citation should have instead been: Hardcastle SL, Brenu EW, Johnston S, Nguyen T, Huth T, Ramos S, et al. Serum immune proteins in moderate and severe chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis patients. Int J Med Sci. (2015) 12:764–72. doi: 10.7150/ijms.12399

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.
