Also, the correct citation for reference 14 is as follows: Cong KJ, Chi SL, Liu CR. Calcium and pregnancyinduced hypertension. Chin J Obstet Gynecol. 1993;28:657-659. The correct citation for reference 25 is as follows: Montanaro D, Boscutti G, Antonucci F, et al. Prevention of pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) and preeclampsia (PE) by oral calcium supplementation: preliminary results. Miner Metab Res Italy. 1986;7:121-124.
