Abstract

In the published article, a Supporting Information (SI) file is included. The authors regret that the article contained an error in the Supplementary Figures 8, 16, 18, and 19 as by mistake some positive chemical controls from other cytokine measurements were added. Supplementary Tables 4, 6, and 7 were also corrected accordingly. During the study, cells were exposed to three positive controls?LPS, TNF-a, and TGF-ß; however, not all positive controls were measured for each specific cytokine. Unfortunately, after further data review, we found that, for some cytokines, positive control data were added from positive controls that were made for other cytokines. Specifically, TNF- A data were added in case of IL-8 release, but only the LPS control was performed; LPS data were added in case of fibronectin and collagen release, but only the TGF-ß control was performed. We also found improper data labeling in Supplementary Figure 8 (LDH release) for + MDMs data. Removing these data nonetheless does not affect the results for the positive chemical controls discussed in the paper. We include a new SI file where the Supplementary Figures 8, 16, 18, and 19 as well as Supplementary Tables 4, 6, and 7 are corrected accordingly. The changes made in supplementary file do not impact the interpretation and the results discussed in the paper. (Table Presented).
