The authors of the original article “Effects of RNA interference-mediated gene silencing of VEGF on the ultrafiltration failure in a rat model of peritoneal dialysis” (Bioscience Reports (2017) 37, https://doi.org/10.1042/BSR20170342) have realised that the vector-4 group image of Figure 3 had been mistakenly placed into the PD4 group image of their immunohistochemistry experiment.

The correct Figure 3 is presented below.

The number of new blood capillaries measured by immunohistochemistry in the 11 groups (n=3)

(A) Images of stained new blood capillaries measured by immunohistochemistry; (B) comparison of the number of new blood capillaries amongst the 11 groups; *, P<0.05 compared with the normal group; &, P<0.05 compared with the uremia group; #, P<0.05 compared with the PD2 group; , P<0.05 compared with the PD4 group; @, P<0.05 compared with the VEGF shRNA-2 group.
