On page 561 of the original publication, right column, first paragraph, lines two to nine, where it is written

"From Table 1, we might assume that the annual incidence of IPF cases is between 6,841 and 9,997 cases/100,000 population, whereas its prevalence ranges between 13,945 and 18,305 cases/100,000 population. Because IPF is quite rare in young people, if we limit the analysis only to the ≥ 55-year age bracket, the projected prevalence might be between 9,986 and 16,109 cases/100,000 population."

it should read

"From Table 1, we might assume that the annual incidence of IPF is between 6,841 and 9,997 cases (3.5-5.1/100,000 population), whereas its prevalence ranges between 13,945 and 18,305 cases (7.1-9.4/100,000 population). Because IPF is quite rare in young people, if we limit the analysis only to the ≥ 55-year age bracket, the projected prevalence might be between 9,986 and 16,109 cases (5.1-8.3/100,000 population)."
