In the Original Contribution entitled "Sertraline Treatment of Major
Depression in Patients With Acute MI or Unstable Angina" published in the
August 14, 2002, issue of THE JOURNAL (2002;288:701-709), incorrect data were
presented in Table 1. In the row "2 Prior episodes, plus HAM-D score ≥18,"
the numbers of patients who had received prior psychotropic treatment should
have been 34 (rather than 126) for the sertraline group and 22 (rather than
101) for the placebo group. In Table 4, the footnote indicated by the dagger
should have read "Treatment-emergent adverse events are rated by the treating
physician as mild, moderate, or severe." In addition, the following persons
were inadvertently omitted from the list of SADHART Investigators: David Barton,
MD, and Michael McIvor, MD.
