Incorrect Symbol Used in Protocol S6.

Posted by plosmedicine on 05 Dec 2012 at 15:38 GMT

Developing an index of overall national-level risk from G6PD deficiency.
http://plosmedicine.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pmed.1001339#article1.body1.sec5.supplementary-material7.caption1.p1

In the text under the heading “S6.2 Generating an index of national-level risk from G6PDd” an incorrect symbol was used. The sentence currently reads “…countries where Class II variants made up ≤⅓ of occurrences were scored 3 (severe)”. This sentence should read “…countries where Class II variants made up >⅓ of occurrences were scored 3 (severe)”.
