Erratum: Pro-inflammatory Cytokine Response and Genetic Diversity in Merozoite Surface Protein 2 of Plasmodium falciparum Isolates from Nigeria

In the article titled, “Pro-inflammatory cytokine response and genetic diversity in merozoite surface protein 2 of Plasmodium falciparum isolates from Nigeria”, DOI: 10.4103/2277-9175.192631 of Advanced Biomedical Research[1], the reference numbers cited in the three sentences in the “Result” section of the article are incorrect.

The correct reference numbers cited in the sentences should appear as below:

  1. Over all Mean MOI was low compared to what was reported by Amodu et al.[20] and Ojurongbe et al.[21]
  2. In all the sites, there was a predominance of FC27 alleles consistent with reports from previous investigations in Nigeria,[22] but contrary to reports from Oceania, Barry et al.,[23] and Mohammed et al.[24]
  3. This identified the importance of determination of P. falciparum genetic diversity in control, elimination and in vaccine design which has been shown to be strongly related with distance and population differentiation.[25]
