It was recently noticed that an error had been made in the research article by Ljuslinder and colleagues [1] published by Breast Cancer Research in July 2005. The legend of Table 4 was incorrect and should read as featured opposite.

aT/NN: mRNA expression levels of EGFR/ERBB2 in tumour tissue (T) samples divided by values in in matched non-neoplastic (NN) tissue samples. As described in the results, at p.9, ratios > 1. 2 are regarded as significant overexpression and ratios < 0. 8 are regarded as significant underexpression in neoplastic tissue compared to non-neoplastic tissue. bPatients with increased LRIG1 copy number. No RNA from patient 3 was available for EGFR/ERBB2 analysis.
