The authors report errors in their conference abstract . The particulate matter diameter should have been stated as μm and not um, and the levels of PM10 and NO2 as μg/m3 and not ug/m3. In addition, the authors have incorrectly stated parameters that had a significance of association with an increase in PM10 and NO2. As a consequence, the last three sentences of the results section should read: “After adjusting for potential confounding factors including age, sex, body mass index, drinking, smoking, physical activity, humidity, temperature, and so on, a 10 μg/m3 increase in PM10 was significantly associated with 0.82 [95% confidence interval (CI): 0.45, 1.18] in SBP, 0.84 [95% CI: 0.52, 1.16] in PP, respectively. Similarly, 1.55 [95% CI: 0.76, 2.33] in SBP and 1.66 [95% CI: 0.98, 2.35] in PP were found for each 10 μg/m3 increase in NO2. However, there was no relationship between PM2.5 and SBP, DBP, and PP (P > 0.05).” Finally, the first sentence of the discussion should state an association rather than a correlation and should, read: “Our study suggests that exposure to air pollutants during adolescence may contribute to a significant association with elevated blood pressure in young adulthood.”
