Following publication of the original article , an error was identified in the Discussion section.
The updated conclusion is given below and the changes have been highlighted in bold typeface.
“According to hormone receptor status, we found that ER positivity was associated with decreased PD-L1 expression in Mo/Mφ and mDC (Additional file 1: Figure S2d, h), PgR positivity with increased PD-L1 expression in MDSCs and decreased PD-L1 expression in NK cells (Additional file 1: Figure S3f, j), and AR positivity with increased PD-L1 expression in CD8+ T and decreased PD-L1 expression in Mo/Mφ cells (Additional file 1: Figure S4b, d). PD-L1 expression reflects ongoing (or active) immune responses in addition to immunosuppression via the PD-1/PD-L1 pathway [60–62]. Thus, ER positivity and AR positivity may reflect specific immune response in the breast cancer microenvironment.”
