Following publication of the original article [1], the authors reported an error in Table 2. The data for ‘HAQ-DI response (MCID ≥ 0.3), n (%) / At week 52’ for the ‘Sarilumab 150 mg q2w + MTX’ and ‘Sarilumab 200 mg q2w + MTX’ groups should be 41 (50.6) and 37 (46.3), respectively (last row, last two entries of the table).

The corrected table is given below.
