The conclusion of this article 1 is incorrect. The second sentence of the last paragraph of the Discussion section should read:
‘The conclusions drawn from our study suggest that TDF is the most beneficial to HBe-Ag-positive patients and ETV or TDF are most beneficial for HBeAg-negative patients, which is in line with the NICE recommendations .’
This is in line with the overall content of the paper, and the content of the abstract.
