The original version of this article [1] unfortunately contained a mistake in Figure 2. Figure panel 2c and 2d should read as follows:
  1. 1.

    Figure 2c: Spearman r = 0.38 with no −(negative) sign.

  2. 2.

    Figure 2d: Spearman r = 0.42 with no −(negative) sign and p < 0.001 and not p = 0.001.

An updated version of Fig. 2 has been provided below.
Fig. 2

Correlation between clinical characteristics and serum REG Iα protein in type 2 diabetes patients. a Correlation between disease duration and serum REG Iα protein. b Correlation between age of patient and serum REG Iα protein in type 2 diabetes patients. c Correlation between FBG and serum REG Iα protein in type 2 diabetes patients. d Correlation between HbA1c and serum REG Iα protein in type 2 diabetes patients

The original version of this article has been updated to reflect this change.
