Correction to: Parasites & Vectors (2016) 9:535
Since publication of the original version of this article , it has been flagged that unfortunately there is an error in dosage units in the Discussion section, in the sentence “For example a microfilaricide, either ivermectin (50–200 mg/kg) or milbemycin oxime (500–1,000 mg/kg)”.
Please be advised that the mg units in the sentence should instead be μg; that is, “For example a microfilaricide, either ivermectin (50–200 μg/kg) or milbemycin oxime (500–1,000 μg/kg)”.
The authors apologize for any inconvenience caused.
