Retraction for vol. 48, p. 20

Statistics from

The authors of abstract number 071 of the BSG Annual Meeting abstract book (Gut2000;48(suppl I):A20) would like to publish a retraction. This is due to the discovery of an error in the data presented which changes the conclusions of the abstract. The potential error was of a technical nature which the authors were unable to resolve until the return of specific technical support to the laboratory.

The authors have found that their genotyping of the IL-10 polymorphism is inverted on what was presented in the abstract, meaning that the association of ulcerative colitis is with the high producing IL-10 allele. They were only recently able to confirm this by direct DNA sequencing.

The authors would like to apologise for the error.
