A Corrigendum on
Leishmanicidal Activity of Piper nigrum Bioactive Fractions is Interceded via Apoptosis In Vitro and Substantiated by Th1 Immunostimulatory Potential In Vivo

by Chouhan, G., Islamuddin, M., Want, M. Y., Ozbak, H. A., Hemeg, H. A., Sahal, D. et al. (2015) Front. Microbiol. 6:1368. doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2015.01368

Reason for Corrigendum:

Due to an oversight, there was a mistake in the affiliation of the Corresponding Author Farhat Afrin, as published. Also, in the original article, we have neglected to thank our sponsors Deanship of Scientific Research, Taibah University, Medina, Saudi Arabia, grant number 7127 to FA and HH. The correct Acknowledgments should have been published as:

Acknowledgments

Present study was financially aided by Department of Science and Technology, Department of Biotechnology and Central Council for Research in Unani Medicine (CCRUM), Government of India. GC was formerly recipient of Senior Research Fellowship from CCRUM and Basic Research Fellowship from University Grants Commission (UGC), under UGC-Special Assistance Grant (SAP) received by Department of Biotechnology, Jamia Hamdard, during the period of study. We profoundly thank Dr. N. Ali, Indian Institute of Chemical Biology, Kolkata, India, for providing us L. donovani culture. Our thanks are due to Mr. T. A. Nagarjuna and Dr. V. Gupta, BD-JHFACS Academy, Jamia Hamdard, for their immense help and cooperation in flow cytometry work. We are also thankful to Mrs. F. Ahmad who extended help in plant collection and extraction. Our collaborative Microbiology Research Group at Faculty of Applied Medical Sciences, Taibah University, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is gratefully acknowledged for meeting the publication cost and process apart from their significant roles and scientific participation in the work. The present study was supported by theDeanship of Scientific Research (grant number 7127), Taibah University, Medina, Saudi Arabia, Department of Science and Technology, Department of Biotechnology and Central Council for Research in Unani Medicine (CCRUM), Government of India.

The authors apologize for this oversight. This error does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way.
