We appreciate the interest that Dr Khan has in our article published in the September 2005 issue of the ARCHIVES. Unfortunately, we did not add the article by Dr Khan and colleagues to the references during the editing process of our manuscript, which was initially submitted for publication in November 2003. We apologize for this oversight. We also acknowledge that human keratocan is currently recognized as having 12 LRRs. However, in our article, we referred to 10 LRRs and failed to designate that these were consensus LRRs between human, bovine, mouse, quail, and chick keratocan and human lumican, decorin, fibromodulin, and biglycan.1 We apologize for the confusion regarding the LRRs, and again, we thank Dr Khan for the astute comments.
