It has been brought to our attention that some paragraphs in the Introduction and Discussion of our recent research article [1] show close similarities to paragraphs in recent publications by Oh et al. [2] and Holloway et al. [3]. While these publications were referenced elsewhere in our paper, the paragraphs which show similarities were not specifically referenced.

We regret this and offer our apologies to the authors.
