In the article by Haffner et al titled "Reduced Coronary Events in Simvastatin-Treated Patients With Coronary Heart Disease and Diabetes or Impaired Fasting Glucose Levels: Subgroup Analysis in the Scandinavian Simvastatin Survival Study" in the December 13/27, 1999, issue of the ARCHIVES (1999;159:2661-2667), 2 of the symbols in the key in Figure 5 were incorrectly labeled. The square should represent DM (diabetes mellitus) and the circle should represent NFG (normal fasting glucose). Figure 5 is reprinted correctly here. The journal regrets the error.
