Citation Error in: Impact of Annual Targeted Treatment on Infectious Trachoma and Susceptibility to Reinfection

JAMA. 2007;297(6):590. doi:10.1001/jama.297.6.590

Citation Error: In the Original Contribution entitled “Impact of Annual Targeted Treatment on Infectious Trachoma and Susceptibility to Reinfection” published in the September 27, 2006, issue of JAMA (2006;296:1488-1497) page 1493 contained an error in the use of a citation. The sentence “Since the immune response to C trachomatis is usually sustained for only 1 to 4 months,24 we reasoned that individuals with resolved infection (conversion of PCR-positive result to negative at a subsequent time point) would be susceptible to infection at the next time point, 6 months later” should read “Since the duration of C trachomatis infection is reduced in older age groups, presumably as a result of acquired immunity,24 we reasoned that if the immune response is usually sustained for only 1 to 4 months, individuals with resolved infection (conversion of PCR-positive result to negative at a subsequent time point) would be susceptible to infection at the next time point, 6 months later.”
