This Article contained an error in the “Results” section. In the last sentence of the first paragraph of the “Results” section, the text indicated “Additional overview microbiota analyses identified Shannon’s diversity (a metric of bacterial community alpha diversity shown to be higher in PC patients compared to healthy controls9) to be significantly lower in ADT + AA samples compared to control samples (Supplementary Fig. 1A–C)”, which was an incorrect summary of the previous work in ref. 9 where alpha diversity was shown to be lower in PC patients compared to healthy control. The revised sentence reads: “Additional overview analyses were performed on the basis of previously reported differences in GI microbiota alpha diversity between PC patients and healthy controls9. Shannon’s diversity (a metric of bacterial community alpha diversity accounting for species abundance and evenness) was found to be significantly lower in ADT + AA samples compared to control samples (Supplementary Fig. 1A–C).”.
