It was highlighted that the original article [1]contained an error under the section Principal findings specifically on page 12, the sentence “This systematic review of umbrella reviews revealed counterintuitively a significant association of low serum uric acid levels with a decreased risk of several neurological diseases” should read: “This systematic review of umbrella reviews revealed counterintuitely a significant association of high serum uric acid levels with a decreased risk of several neurological diseases”. The original article has been updated.
