In Reply.—Dr Schwenk has identified an error in Table 5 of the Report of the 1988 Joint National Committee on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure, published in Archives.1 In that table under the β-blockers subheading, the statement should read, "cimetidine may increase bioavailability of beta blockers metabolized primarily by the liver by inhibiting hepatic oxidative enzymes."

We thank Dr Schwenk for calling attention to this error.
