A corrigendum on
The role of drug transporters in the kidney lessons from tenofovir
by Moss, D. M., Neary, M., and Owen, A. (2014). Front. Pharmacol. 5:248. doi: 10.3389/fphar.2014.00248
The authors wish to correct a mistake on the review “The role of drug transporters in the kidney: lessons from tenofovir” regarding the details of a particular ABCC2 polymorphism [−24C > T (rs717620)]. In the Section “Tenofovir and kidney transporter pharmacogenetics” on page five of the article, the second line on the second column should state the ABCC2 polymorphism as −24C > T, rather than −24T > C. Additionally, the sentence beginning on page five, line four of the second column should be changed from: “In a study in Japanese HIV+ patients, the ABCC2 −24C > T and1249G > A polymorphisms were found to be protective for tenofovir-induced kidney toxicity (Nishijima et al., 2012).” and instead read: “In a study in Japanese HIV+ patients, the ABCC2 −24T > C and 1249G > A polymorphisms were found to be associated with the increased occurrence of tenofovir-induced kidney toxicity (Nishijima et al., 2012).”
