In the Consensus Statement entitled "Directly Observed Therapy for Treatment
Completion of Pulmonary Tuberculosis: Consensus Statement of the Public Health
Tuberculosis Guidelines Panel," published in the March 25, 1998, issue of
THE JOURNAL (1998;279:943-948), there was incorrect wording in Tables 2, 3,
4, and 5. The first footnote in each of these tables should read ". . . SCR,
proportion of patients whose sputum converts to no mycobacterial growth .
Also in this article, Figure 1 was printed with incorrect median treatment
completion rate data. Figure 1 is
correct as it appears here.
