NEW YORK (AP) — In a Feb. 15 headline and story about "Body Worlds," The Associated Press erroneously implied that the exhibit had included bodies from China.

"Body Worlds" exhibits have never used bodies from China, according to a statement from the Institute of Plastination in Heidelberg, Germany, where Dr. Gunther von Hagens invented a process to plasticize cadavers for public displays at museums.

In an interview with ABC's "20/20," von Hagens said he had "stopped using bodies from China" and that "he had cremated some bodies." Von Hagens was referring to "anatomical specimens" he plasticized for Chinese university medical schools in 2003-04, the statement said.
