Here we briefly present an update of the authorship list. After the publication of this study protocol [1], we became aware of the fact that the authors list was incomplete.

The list is now complete and some mistakes in co-authors names and affiliations were corrected. The updated Authors’ Contributions is as follows: KVB, MS, MCCK, CHK, MTLV, GAA, LAB, GVV and VCF have made substantial contributions to the conception and design of the study, drafted the manuscript and revised it critically. AD, AJPM, ALVB, ALLS, AMAO, BDS, CLO, CFC, DTG, DRB, DLBR, ELS, EBL, EF, ERAO, FAGV, GDA, GSB, GMD, HRCF, MIM, ICBG, JRFN, JSO, KMBC, LGOG, MMS, PTM, PCBVJ, PAMF, RMMJr, RQG, RPV, SMV, SSM, SMSM, TBLG, BMT, ESM and TLNS contributed to the conception and design of the study, and revised the manuscript.
