Abstract

An error occurred in the COUNCIL REPORT entitled "In Vivo Diagnostic Testing and Immunotherapy for Allergy: Report I, Part II, of the Allergy Panel," published in the Sept 18 issue of The Journal (1987;258:1505-1508). On page 1507, the second sentence in the first paragraph of the "Hymenoptera Venom Immunotherapy" section should have read as follows: "Patients should have clinical evidence of anaphylaxis from specific Hymenoptera sting, a positive skin test reaction with specific Hymenoptera venom and/or specific serum IgE antibody, and should receive injections according to the recommended schedule to attain an effective dose of approximately 100 μg [not `100 mg'] of specific venom every month."
