Following the publication of our article , we would like to make some corrections to the text as detailed below:
Patients and methods
This section includes the following text: “Due to the very small size of EVs (20-1000 nm) we had no fear of size related complications (i.e. engraftment syndrome associates MSCs transplantation) and intra-arterial EVs injection has been successfully used to reduce myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury . So, we’ve chosen the intra-arterial route to maximize EVs delivery to the kidneys.” We would like to clarify that Lai et al.  did not use intra-arterial injection of EVs, rather the MSC exosomes they injected reached the coronary arteries and successfully reduced myocardial IRI through arterial delivery of the MSC-EVs.
In this section “Amsterdam’s declarations” should read “Declaration of Helsinki”
The Declaration section which reads:
“The study protocol has been approved by the health ethical committee of Sahel Teaching Hospital on April 2014. All patients have been informed verbally and a written consent for the research and publication has been signed prior any step according to Amsterdam’s declarations. No individual patient’s data were included. A written consent from both parents (for umbilical cord donors) has been obtained prior to any intervention.”
should read as follows:

All patients have been informed verbally and written consent for participation in the research and for publication has been obtained prior to any step according to the Declaration of Helsinki.
