The wording of the title of this clinical review by Perviz Asaria and Eithne MacMahon was the result of late changes that we made in the editorial department (BMJ 2006;333:890-5, doi:10.1136/bmj.38989.445845.7C, 28 Oct). Owing to pressing deadlines, we made the changes without consulting the authors, who would have pointed out that “eradication” was incorrect in this context. As they explained in their article, eradication relates to worldwide elimination of measles. The error was repeated on the front cover. We apologise for the errors.
