Error in Table Row Alignment and No. of Participants

JAMA. 2016;316(13):1412. doi:10.1001/jama.2016.13819

In the US Preventive Services Task Force Evidence Report entitled “Screening for Colorectal Cancer,” published in the June 21, 2016, issue of JAMA,1 the row of data in Table 3 for the study by Nakama et al should have included the second line grouped with the study by Cheng et al. In Table 4, the No. of participants for the gFOBT test should have been 419 966. Also in Table 4 for the gFOBT test, the Summary of Findings column should have read, “Biennial screening with Hemoccult II compared with no screening (404 396)….” This article was corrected online. This article was also corrected in August 2016 to correct the URL for the full USPSTF report.2
