Errors in Table. In the Original Investigation titled “Lipoprotein(a) Levels and Risk of Future Coronary Heart Disease: Large-Scale Prospective Data,” by Bennet et al, published in the March 24 issue of the Archives (2008;168[6]:598-608), errors occurred in Table 1 on page 599. In the lipid factors section of that table, the mean (SD) log triglyceride and log lipoprotein(a) values for cases should have been given as 4.63 (0.45) mg/dL and 2.07 (1.61) mg/dL, respectively, and the values for controls should have been given as 4.51 (0.44) mg/dL and 1.74 (1.73) mg/dL, respectively. In addition, the last footnote should have read as follows: “cMedian (interquartile range) values for C-reactive protein, triglycerides, and lipoprotein(a) were 1.41 mg/L (0.67-3.05 mg/L), 93 mg/dL (67-128 mg/dL), and 9.4 mg/dL (3.0-23.2 mg/dL), respectively.”
