The authors regret that the following errors have occurred. The number of patients who died from cancer and other diseases in each group (control group, PI2W group, and PI4W group) are described in Table 3. However, death from diseases other than cancer was omitted as a form of mortality during the analysis of the data for overall survival. Subsequently, the data in Fig. 3 and 4 do not represent that of overall survival, and the correct description would be “disease-specific survival.” Therefore, re-analysis of overall survival was performed using the same method in the original article, based on the definition of overall survival, and Fig. 3 and 4 for Overall Survival should be replaced with the new versions of the figures below. These changes, however, do not impact the scientific conclusion and value of the study. Corrections to be made: This figure should be replaced. The correct figure is below.
