An error occurred in the answer to the question titled "Are There Methods of Sterilization to Destroy Hepatitis Virus?" published in the July 29, 1974, issue (229:579). The first sentence of the third paragraph should have read "The most accepted way of sterilizing instruments and other items that can be boiled or autoclaved is to autoclave for 30 minutes at 121.5 C, by dry heat for two hours at 170 C, or by boiling in water for 30 minutes." As published, the instructions for sterilization were incorrect.
