Following the publication of the original article [1], an error was noticed by the authors. The statistics shown in Figure Two do not accurately reflect the results outlined in the text. To correctly reflect the text, the “subjects with/without live lice” graph in Fig. 2 (Fig. 1 here) should state 98.2 % for day 7 and 96.5 % for day 14 (at current the graph states 90.2 % for day 7 and 90.5 % for day 14). The correct figure is attached to this erratum, for your reference.
