Correction

Dr. Carlos Campillo, Hospital Universitario Son Dureta, Palma de Mallorca, Spain, kindly pointed out that in the paragraph prior to the conclusion, it should read "Figure 3" instead of "Figure 2" and that in the last two sentences of that paragraph, it should read "gram-positive" instead of "gram-negative" [1].
