Data Error and Incorrect Wording in: Survival Associated With Treatment vs Observation of Localized Prostate Cancer in Elderly Men

JAMA. 2007;297(1):42. doi:10.1001/jama.297.1.42

Data Error and Incorrect Wording: In the Original Contribution entitled “Survival Associated With Treatment vs Observation of Localized Prostate Cancer in Elderly Men” published in the December 13, 2006, issue of JAMA (2006;296:2683-2693), two tables had data errors and another table had incorrect wording. In Table 3, the fourth quintile of the 10-year overall survival for the observation group should have read 0.61 (0.58-0.65) and in the treatment group, the 10-year overall survival for the fourth quintile should have read 0.68 (0.67-0.70) for the propensity scores and their respective 95% confidence intervals. In the final row of Table 7, the hazard ratio and 95% confidence interval should have read 0.97 (0.94-1.00). In Table 6, the column head that reads “No. of Patients Who Died” should read “No. of Patients.”
