The first sentence of the sixth paragraph should have read: “The time to obtain a response varied greatly, from six to 161 days (mean 60 days [not median 56 days]) in While's [not White et al's study.”11 Reference 11 should therefore have read: “11 While AE [not White A]. Ethics committees: impediments to research or guardians of ethical standards? BMJ 1994;311:661.”
