Correction

Correction to: J Gastroenterol  https://doi.org/10.1007/s00535-018-1488-5

The authors would like to correct the errors in the publication of the original article. The correction details are given below for your reading.

The first sentence in the second paragraph beneath the heading “Microbiome analysis” in third page should be “The observed species, Chao1 and Shannon phylogenetic diversity indices were calculated by the R ‘‘phyloseq’’ package and were statistically analyzed using a Wilcoxon rank-sum test.”

The last two sentences in the first paragraph, in fifth page should be “In the younger group (20–39 years), the relative abundance of Bifidobacterium (p < 0.01) and Ruminococcus (p < 0.05) substantially increased in female subjects, and the relative abundance of Escherichia (p < 0.05) significantly increased in male subjects. In the middle age group (40–59 years), the relative abundance of Prevotella (p < 0.05) and Megamonas (p < 0.05) increased in male subjects, and the relative abundance of Ruminococcus (p < 0.01) and Oscillospira (p < 0.01) significantly increased in female subjects. In the elderly group (60 years or older), the relative abundance of Bacteroides (p < 0.01) and Turicibacter (p < 0.05) increased in female subjects, and the relative abundance of Prevotella (p < 0.01), Megasphaera (p < 0.05) significantly increased in male subjects (Supplementary Fig. 4).”

The third sentence of the fourth paragraph, in seventh page should be “Characteristically, the genera Prevotella (middle age group and elderly group) and Megamonas (middle age group) were notably increased in male subjects, and the genera Bifidobacterium (younger group) was strikingly increased in female subjects”.

In addition, Figs. 4 and 8 were published incorrectly. The correct Figs. 4 and 8 are given in the following pages:
Fig. 4

The relative abundance of gut microbiota in male and female subjects. The genera were significantly different between male and female subjects

Fig. 8

Comparative analyses of the microbial community at the genus level for each stool consistency group. Genera were significantly different among each stool consistency group for male and female subjects. Stool consistency was categorized into three groups: hard (BSS 1 or 2), intermediate (BSS 3 or 4), and loose (BSS 5 or 6)
