Erratum to: Phytol-based novel adjuvants in vaccine formulation: 1. assessment of safety and efficacy during stimulation of humoral and cell-mediated immune responses
Journal of Immune Based Therapies and Vaccinesvolume 5, Article number: 3 (2007)
The original article was published in Journal of Immune Based Therapies and Vaccines 2006 4:6
This is a correction article.
After the publication of the study  we noticed a substantial error in our published article. In the original article  the dosage units were erroneously described in μg instead of mg. All references to μg quantities should be replaced with mg quantities throughout the manuscript. Also the LD50 should be g/kg instead of mg/kg.
Thus, in the abstract section:
The 3rd paragraph, 4th sentence, under the caption: Results and Discussion: one should read 40 mg/mouse instead of 40 μg/mouse.
In the results section:
The 5th paragraph, 2nd, 5th and 6th sentences, under the caption: Evaluation of toxicity and safety of phytol adjuvants: replace μg with mg (in three places),
The 5th paragraph, 4th sentence, under the caption: Evaluation of toxicity and safety of phytol adjuvants: replace 8 mg/kg with 8 g/kg
Figure 4 Legend, (under the caption: Demonstration of splenomegaly in mice treated with different adjuvants), lines 6 & 7: replace μg with mg (in four places)
Table 1 (next line beneath the table heading): Dose (mg, NOT μg), and LD50 (g/kg instead of mg/kg).
Table 2 (counting the Table heading): lines 6 and 7: (80 mg NOT 80 μg)
Table 3: Footnote (first): 140 mg (NOT μg) of each substance was used.
Correction of the above errors in units does not alter the basic findings or conclusions of the original article.
