Correction to: Higher incidence of pegfilgrastim-induced bone pain in younger patients receiving myelosuppressive chemotherapy: a real-world experience
Journal of Pharmaceutical Health Care and Sciences volume 9, Article number: 16 (2023)
Correction to: J Pharm Health Care Sci9, 2 (2023)
After publication of the original article  the authors found an error in the analysis. According to the univariate logistic regression analysis findings summarized in original Table 1, the item “Type of chemotherapy (adjuvant chemotherapy vs. chemotherapy alone)” mentioned odds ratio (OR) of 2.93, with a 95% confidence interval (CI) of 1.29–6.62 and p-value of 0.010.
According to the statistical method used, this item should be included in multivariate analysis. However, the results for this clinical factor in the multivariate analysis were blank. The correct version of Table 1 is included in this correction article.
Accordingly, the corrected OR for younger age (< 55 years) related to pegfilgrastim-induced bone pain is 3.68 (95% CI 1.52–8.90, p = 0.003). Owing to the minimum alterations in OR and p-values in multivariate analysis, the authors believe that this correction does not significantly impact the study results.
