Correction

Following publication of the original article [1], the authors reported that the corrections they had requested for Table 3 had not been implemented, and that the title for Table 2 included an unnecessary indication for remark/reference (“a” in a superscript font) at the end of the title. Also, the affiliation of the authors had not been clearly stated: it should read ‘Faculty of Medicine, Bar-Ilan University, Safed Campus, P.O.Box 1589, Safed, Israel’.

The tables should appear as follows:
