The working panel that wrote the cholesterol guidelines mentioned in this News story (BMJ 2013;347:f6989, doi:10.1136/bmj.f6989) had 16 people on it, not 15 as we published. Consequently, the last sentence of the first paragraph should say “eight of the 16 panelists had industry ties” and the title should read “Half of panelists on controversial new cholesterol guideline have current or recent ties to drug manufacturers.”
