Incorrect Sentences in Discussion

JAMA Intern Med. 2016;176(2):284. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2015.8416

In the Original Investigation entitled “Effect of Discontinuation of Antihypertensive Treatment in Elderly People on Cognitive Functioning—the DANTE Study Leiden: A Randomized Clinical Trial” published online August 24, 2105, and in the October 2015 issue of JAMA Internal Medicine,1 incorrect sentences appeared in the Discussion section. In the fourth paragraph of the Discussion, the last sentence, which was given as “Finally, by performing neuroimaging, we were able to assess the influence of cerebrovascular disease and CBF in a subset of participants.” should be replaced with “Finally, by performing neuroimaging in a subset of participants we were able to assess the effect of discontinuation of antihypertensive treatment in those persons with more cerebrovascular disease and/or lower cerebral blood flow at baseline.” Also, in the fifth paragraph, the fourth sentence, which was given as “Finally, by performing neuroimaging in a subset of participants we were able to assess the effect of discontinuation of antihypertensive treatment in those persons with more cerebrovascular disease and/or lower cerebral blood flow at baseline.” should be replaced with “Finally, the DANTE trial investigated the effect of complete or partial discontinuation of different classes of antihypertensive treatment to achieve an increase in blood pressure.” This article was corrected online.
