There is an error in the final sentence of the subsection “Assessing Anti-saliva antibodies levels”. The correct sentence is: Moreover, the median value of anti-salivary IgG levels were significantly higher (P = 0.0001) in LST+ compared to LST- study subjects (Fig 4B). Also, Fig 4 is missing the statistical significance value. The authors have provided a corrected version here.
