Erratum

After publication of the original article [1], the author found that a word had been incorrectly used in the article body in the paragraph entitled ‘Effect on the tumor’ in the ‘Results’ section:

“The fourth patient, patient 17, an 84 year old with chemo-naive stage IV squamous cell lung carcinoma dieted until 16 weeks and finished the trial with stable disease while achieving excellent ketosis (+2).”

The word “squamous” should be “adenocarcinoma”. Therefore the correct sentence should read “The fourth patient, patient 17, an 84 year old with chemo-naive stage IV adenocarcinoma cell lung carcinoma dieted until 16 weeks and finished the trial with stable disease while achieving excellent ketosis (+2).”
