This title, which we added to a News article by Annette Tuffs about alleged organ trading (15 March, p 568), wrongly suggested that a German surgeon mentioned in the article (Christoph Broelsch) was being legally investigated over such trading. The district attorney in Essen is investigating the alleged trading, but only the recipients, donors, and an agency are being investigated; neither Dr Broelsch nor his surgeon friend Johannes Scheele is being investigated.
