Clarification - In an article on iron studies by Alison Kelly and colleagues (BMJ 2017;357:j2513, doi:10.1136/bmj.j2513), the sentence “Monitor ferritin in those with haemochromatosis undergoing venesection to deplete iron until ferritin is less than 50 μg/L, and maintain ferritin 50-100 μg/L thereafter” should have read: “For example, standard practice in haemochromatosis is to continue regular venesection to deplete iron until ferritin is less than 50 μg/L, and maintain ferritin 50-100 μg/L thereafter.” The authors' intention was to give an example of standard practice, not to provide clinical guidance on this point.
