Published in pp 949-954 in Issue 10, 2005 contained an incorrect statement in the Introduction. The sentence ”This plant has not previously been investigated chemically” is revised to: ”The phytochemistry of Vernonia chinensis growing in Europe has been investigated [1,2], while material originating from China has so far not been subjected to chemical analysis.”
