In this news article by Nigel Hawkes we inadvertently confused the lipid and non-lipid formulations of amphotericin (BMJ 2007;335:467, 8 Sep, doi: 10.1136/bmj.39329.504757.DB). Fungizone is the non-lipid presentation, and AmBisome is one of the lipid formulations. We wrongly defined them as the other way round.
