A concern was raised that the Vietnamese healthy volunteers examined in the study did not
provide written consent. Subsequent investigation has revealed that for these healthy
volunteers, only oral and not written consent was obtained; however, this practice was
consistent with regulations at the time. The authors mistakenly cited approval by the
Oxford Tropical Research Ethics Committee (OxTREC) for this study. Current regulations by
Oxford University now stipulate that all human studies obtain institutional approval, and
the regulations now require written consent (http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/researchsupport/ctrg/furtherinfo/).
