The Viewpoint entitled “What to Believe and Do About Statin-Associated Adverse Effects”1 published in the November 15, 2016, issue of JAMA, included an inaccurate sentence regarding the findings of the STOMP trial. It was corrected to read: “This finding did not reach statistical significance, but patients taking statins developed symptoms at approximately twice the rate of patients taking placebo.” This article was corrected online.
