The second sentence in the seventh paragraph of the Introduction should have cited references 27 and 28 in the first part of the sentence, and should have cited reference 29 at the end of the sentence. The correct sentence should read: Thus, it has been described that COX inhibitors cause an increase in mortality and parasitism [27, 28] in T. cruzi infection, but contrarily, other reports claim that COX-2 inhibition decreases the level of parasitism [29].

According to this new order, references 28 and 29 should appear in the References as follows:

Effects of cyclooxygenase inhibitors on parasite burden, anemia and oxidative stress in murine Trypanosoma cruzi infection. FEMS immunology and medical microbiology. 2008; 52(1):47–58. PMID:_18031539_.
