In the Editorial entitled "Understanding Parkinson Disease" published in the January 27, 1999, issue of THE JOURNAL (1999;281:376-378), selegiline was identified as an MAO type A inhibitor rather than a type B inhibitor. On page 377, the sentence should have read, "Selegiline is a monoamine oxidase type B inhibitor that limits the formation of free radicals derived from oxidation of dopamine, and application of this agent in clinical trials suggests an effect on disease progression consistent with a neuroprotective action.23-25"
