Upon publication of the original article [1], the authors mistakenly referred to their experimental technique as “Carbon ion radiotherapy”. This was incorrect; the technique should have been referred to as “Proton beam therapy”. All authors of the original manuscript have understood and agreed to this correction additionally the scientific conclusions of this paper remain unchanged.
