After publication of the Article, the authors noticed that corrections to the central panel of Fig. 1b (the timedependent effect of exogenous IL-6 on the expression/ phosphorylation of Stat3, ILK, and MUC1-C) and the left panel of Fig. 2a (effect of shRNA-mediated silencing of ILK versus control on the phosphorylation and/or expression of STAT3 and MUC1-C in IL-6-treated AsPC- 1 cells) were necessary, as anomalies were found in the Stat3 and ILK blots, respectively. Experiments were repeated outside of the authors’ laboratory. The new data are essentially the same as those acquired previously and lead to the same conclusion reported in the original Article. The corrected figures containing these new data are shown below.
