Addition of an Omitted Word

JAMA. 2016;316(18):1924. doi:10.1001/jama.2016.16009

In the Reply Letter entitled “Common Cold Treatment Using Zinc” published in the August 18, 2015, issue of JAMA,1 the word “mostly” before “in the same country” was omitted. The second sentence in the second paragraph should have been “We therefore selected trials using zinc lozenges that were conducted mostly in the same country (United States), in the same setting (outpatient setting), in the same population (mostly adults), for the same health problem (naturally acquired cold), and for the same outcome (duration of cold).” This article was corrected online.
