Corrigendum to “Habitual fish consumption does not prevent a decrease in LCPUFA status in pregnant women (The Seychelles Child Development Nutrition Study)” [Prostaglandins, Leukotrienes and Essential Fatty Acids 78 (2008) 343–350]

      In the article cited above, it has recently come to the authors' attention that there were errors in the calculation of the long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid (LCPUFA) concentrations in maternal serum and breast milk. These errors resulted from applying an incorrect conversion factor to account for sample dilution. As a result, the absolute values for these LCPUFA concentrations in the figures were incorrectly reported. The scales on the y-axis of Figs. 1–3 and the x-axis of Fig. 3 should be divided by 6.25. The tables are unaffected. Correlations between DHA and fish intake (Figs. 1 and 2) and between DHA concentrations in maternal serum at 28 weeks gestation and postpartum breast milk (Fig. 3) are unaffected and the conclusions of this article remain unchanged. Further details are available from the last author upon request. The authors regret the errors.
