Crow MK, Ronnblom L. Report of the inaugural Interferon Research Summit: interferon in inflammatory diseases. Lupus Science & Medicine 2018;5:e000276. doi: 10.1136/lupus-2018-000276

The authors want to alert readers to the following two errors identified in the published version.

At page 4 (column 1, 2nd sentence of last paragraph), the sentence should read as: “Young women (35–44 years) with SLE have a 50-fold increased risk of vascular complications…”

In Table 1, the row under the drug “Anifrolumab” states that the drug is at Phase II for Sjögren’s syndrome. This has been stated incorrectly and has been removed. The updated Table 1 is now available below:

Table 1

Therapeutic agents targeting components of the type I IFN pathway and in clinical development for IFN-driven diseases

In the legend of figure 1, the term ‘interferon-stimulating genes’ appears. The correct term is ‘interferon-stimulated genes’.
