In Am J Trop Med Hyg 2011 84: 161–165 by Matisz et al., there is an error in the Discussion section. The statement “In Australia, the favored policy is for mass treatment on arrival with AL without laboratory diagnosis” is incorrect and instead refers to the US guidelines which recommend post-arrival treatment with atovaquone-proguanil in refugees who did not receive pre-departure prophylaxis (Stauffer et al., 2008. AJTMH 79(2):141–146).

In Am J Trop Med Hyg 84: 1012–1015 by Darwin et al., there was an error in Table 4. The corrected table appears below.

Table 4

Infection, dissemination and transmission potential of Chimeric CHIK vaccine strains in Ae. albopictus mosquitoes.

EEEV strain BeAn436087; CHIKV strain La Reunion.

Legs/wings and saliva were only tested from mosquitoes with bodies infected.

In Am J Trop Med Hyg 85: 471–478 by Agampodi et al., the legend for Figure 2 is incorrect. The figure legend should read as follows:

Figure 2. Phylogenetic tree based on the region of leptospira rrs gene. The sequences obtained in this study were indicated in GeneBank accession numbers JF910144, JF910145, JF910146, JF910147, JF910148 and JF910149. The sequences were aligned in MEGA4 using CLUSTALW, and phylogenetic distances were calculated in MEGA4 using the maximum likelihood. Numbers of nodes were bootstrap support after 500 replicates.

Also, in Table 2 of the same manuscript, the abbreviation MRI was described as “magnetic resonance imaging” when it should have been “medical research institute.”

In Am J Trop Med Hyg 85: 485–489 by Chang et al., one of the grant numbers was missing from the Financial Support section in the print version of the article. The last part of that section should have read “and the High Impact Research Fund (E000013-20001).”

The journal regrets these errors.
