Errors in Abstract and Text in: Adherence to a DASH-Style Diet and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease and Stroke in Women

Arch Intern Med. 2008;168(12):1276. doi:10.1001/archinte.168.12.1276

Errors in Abstract and Text. In the Original Investigation by Fung et al titled “Adherence to a DASH-Style Diet and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease and Stroke in Women,” published in the April 14, 2008, issue of the Archives (2008;168[7]:713-720), 2 errors occurred in the text. On page 713, in the first sentence of the “Results” section in the abstract, the number of cases of stroke is incorrect. The corrected sentence reads as follows: “We documented 2129 cases of incident nonfatal myocardial infarction, 976 CHD deaths, and 2317 cases of stroke.” On page 715, in the first sentence of the “Results” section, the number of cases of CHD is incorrect. The corrected sentence reads as follows: “During 24 years of follow-up, we documented 3105 cases of CHD, of which 2129 were nonfatal and 976 fatal, and 2317 cases of stroke, of which 1242 were ischemic and 400 hemorrhagic (the remainder could not be clearly classified).”
