An editorial error occurred in the first letter of this cluster by David Ramey (13 May, p 1341). We should have removed the opening phrase, “apologists for homoeopathy,” in light of the debate between David Ramey and Andrew Vickers on bmj.com. In this debate Dr Ramey states that while his comments may be appropriate for homoeopathic apologists he does not regard Dr Vickers as such and apologises for any offence caused (www.bmj.com/cgi/eletters/319/7217/1115#EL16). We are sorry to have perpetuated this misunderstanding.
