Incorrect Data.  —In the Original Contribution entitled "Effect of Dialyzer Reuse on Survival of Patients Treated With Hemodialysis," published in the August 28, 1996, issue of THE JOURNAL (1996;276: 620-625), there is a numerical error. The first sentence of the "Comment" section should read as follows: This study of more than 27000 patients with ESRD who began hemodialysis in 1986 or 1987 has demonstrated that, in freestanding dialysis facilities, reuse dialysis using peracetic/acetic acid was associated with a median survival 2.9 [not 1.6] months shorter than single-use dialysis and a median survival 2.2 months shorter than reuse dialysis with formaldehyde.
