In this Clinical Review by J Townshend and colleagues (BMJ 2007;335:253-7, 4 Aug, doi: 10.1136/bmj.39255.692222.AE), a mix-up in terminology during editing was not picked up at proof stage, resulting in some confusion for readers. In the section headed “Long acting β2 agonists” five of the six references to “short acting β2 agonists” (all but in the final sentence) should have read “long acting β2 agonists.” In addition, the second and third sentences in the Summary Points box should refer to “long acting β2 agonists [not antagonists].”
