Following publication of the original article [1], the authors identified an error in the caption of Figs. 1 and 2: these should be inverted.

The correct captions are given below.

The correct caption for Fig. 1 is: "Classification of pyoverdine and pyocyanin producer by qualitative observational method. a, pyoverdine producer strain; b, pyocyanin producer strain"

The correct caption for Fig. 2 is: "Survival curves for Galleria mellonella larvae after infection with Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains isolated from patients with VAP (VAP P. aeruginosa, n = 8) and from patients with other infections (non-VAP P. aeruginosa, n = 8). PBS was used as a positive control for larvae survival. *Statistically differences were found between VAP and non-VAP P. aeruginosa (p < 0.001) using the log-rank test”.

The original article [1] has been updated.
