Text Error in: Neonatal Sepsis: Looking Beyond the Blood Culture: Evaluation of a Study of Universal Primer Polymerase Chain Reaction for Identification of Neonatal Sepsis

Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 2009;163(4):348. doi:10.1001/archpediatrics.2009.27

Text Error. In the article titled “Neonatal Sepsis: Looking Beyond the Blood Culture: Evaluation of a Study of Universal Primer Polymerase Chain Reaction for Identification of Neonatal Sepsis,” by DeCamp et al, published in the January issue of the Archives (2009;163[1]:12-14), a statement error occurred. On page 13, left column, “Determining the Test's Importance” section, paragraph 2, lines 4 through 6, should have read as follows: “The LR reflects the sensitivity and specificity of the test in a single number, but unlike positive and negative predictive value, does not depend on disease prevalance.”
