To the Editor.—
In the July 1990 issue of the ARCHIVES, you printed our letter to the editor concerning lipoprotein (a) serum levels in chronic cholestatic liver disease.1 To our regret, errors appreared in the corresponding table. From the table as printed the impression might arise that ursodeoxycholic acid induces a marked elevation of high-density cholesterol, a finding that we have not observed. The correct values, given as means ± SEMs, are shown in the revised table.
