In Figure 1, the unit of measurement for Fout is incorrect. Also, from the figure legend, it is difficult to understand that the manuscript’s results were calculated based on mass units. Revised versions of the figure and figure legend are available here: http://www.plosmedicine.org/corrections/pmed.0050170.g001.cn.pdf
