To the Editor: In the study of remissions in maternal depression and child psychopathology by Dr Weissman and colleagues,1 conflict of interest disclosures were made for 6 of the 15 coauthors. However, it appears that authors omitted or minimized numerous previously published pharmaceutical relationships, based on comparison with the “American Psychiatric Association's Continuing Medical Education Policy on Full Disclosure.”2
