To the Editor: In a Viewpoint on preventing depression,1 Dr Reynolds reported the following disclosures: “Dr Reynolds reports receiving pharmaceuticals for research studies from Bristol-Myers Squibb, Forest, Pfizer, and Lilly.” Subsequently, after notification that he had submitted incomplete conflict of interest (COI) disclosures, Reynolds amended his disclosures, adding government and private funding sources, and indicating “a misunderstanding of the requirements for reporting of conflicts of interest.”2
