Br J Cancer. 2019 Apr;120(8):869. doi: 10.1038/s41416-019-0424-7.


The authors have noticed that the final paragraph of the Results section contains errors in the number of patients involved. The correct number of patients is included in the text below. These errors do not affect the Figure referenced.In osteosarcoma, we focused on 8q gain as a specific biological feature of interest. Among the 41 patients with detectable ctDNA in the osteosarcoma cohort, 8q gain was detected in 73.2% (30/41). The 3-year EFS for patients with 8q gain (n = 30) in ctDNA was 60.0% (95% CI 40.5-75.0) compared to 80.8 (95% CI 42.4-94.9) in patients without 8q gain (n = 11) in ctDNA (p = 0.18; Fig. 3).
