In the article entitled "Effect of Necrotizing Enterocolitis on Urinary Epidermal Growth Factor Levels" in the July 1991 issue of AJDC (1991;145:804-807), there were some errors in the units of measure used to report EGF and creatinine values. The unit of measure for human EGF values cited five lines from the end of the text under the subhead "EGF Assay and Creatinine Measurements" on page 805 should have read micromoles per liter, and three lines below, the unit of measure for EGF/creatinine values should have read micromoles per micromole. Also, in the last paragraph in the left column of the next page, four lines from the bottom, the values in parentheses should have read μmol/μmol, not μmol/mmol.
