The original publication of this article [1] contained an incorrect version of figure 4, and an incorrect version of figure S4 in Additional file 1. The wrong version of both files, which contained an incorrect color legend, was accidentally used during typesetting of the article.

In this correction article the correct and incorrect version of figure 4 are published along with the updated Additional file 1.

The original article has been updated.

Associations between levels of Serpin E1, IL-8, MIF, and PDGF-AA and survival in breast cancer patients. The METABRIC dataset was used to assess the association between expression levels of Serpin E1 (a), IL-8 (b), PDGF-AA (c), MIF (d) and the mean signature levels of all 4 factors (median of the mean of normalized expression levels of the four factors) (e), with 10-year survival. Protein levels were classified as higher or lower than the median, and the association to 10-year survival was assessed by the Kaplan-Meier analysis (n = 952 per group). p value was calculated using two-sided log rank test
