In the article by Ko and Chan (1), the text under ‘Conflict of Interest Statement’ on page 38 was incorrect and should have read:

JCNC serves on the advisory boards and steering committee of several companies including MSD, sanofi-aventis, Daiichi-sankyo and Bayer and she is a principal investigator of clinical trials sponsored by these companies. All sponsorships, speakers' fees and honoraria received are related to these research and educational activities and donated to the Chinese University of Hong Kong, whenever appropriate, to support their research and educational programmes. GTCK declares no conflict of interests.

We apologize for this error.
