There is a contradiction between the P values reported in the abstract and those reported in the manuscript text of this article by Kooij et al. . The P values reported in the results section of the manuscript are correct. In the abstract the P value for current BMI less than less than 20 kg/m2 should be P = 0.01 and not P < 0.001, and for nadir BMI less than 20 kg/m2 should be P = 0.001 and not P < 0.001).
The corrected abstract text should have read: “Within the HIV-infected group, parameters related to body composition were most strongly and independently associated with prefrailty/frailty: current BMI less than 20 kg/m2 (OR 2.83, P = 0.01), nadir BMI less than 20 kg/m2 (OR 2.51, P = 0.001) and waist-to-hip ratio (OR 1.79 per 0.1 higher, P < 0.001).”
