The JAOA regrets errors that appeared in the following article: 
Chikly B, Roberts P, Quaghebeur J. Primo vascular system: a unique biological system shifting a medical paradigm. J Am Osteopath Assoc. 2016;116(1): 12-21. doi:10.7556/jaoa.2016.002. 
Millimeters should have appeared as micrometers in several statements, as follows: 
In the second paragraph on page 12: “The primo vascular vessels have been identified in rabbits as thin, semitransparent structureswith an average diameter of approximately 20 to 30 μm. Each vessel contains up to 20 smaller ductules 3 to 10 μm in diameter that are lined by a single layer of endothelial cells and surrounded by extracellular matrix.” 
In the first paragraph on page 17: “The mean (SD) speed of flow of the primo fluid was measured to be approximately 0.3 (0.1) mm per second in rabbits, using alcian blue, and at around 100 to 800 μm/s with direct measurement using fluorescent nanoparticles.” 
In the third paragraph on page17: “Primo fluid contains a high concentration of cells resembling stem cells called primo microcells, approximately 1 to 4 μm in diameter, whose exact function remains to be determined.” 
These corrections will be made to the online versions of the article
