On page 256, the “Setting” portion of the Abstract should have read as follows: “Family practices in England (n = 224) registered with the General Practice Research Database from January 1, 2001, through December 31, 2008. The case-control data were drawn from approximately 4.7 million complete patient records, with complete linkage to national mortality records.” On page 257, in the first paragraph of the “Data Sets and Outcome Ascertainment” subsection of the “Methods” section, the fifth sentence should have read as follows: “The September 2010 version we analyzed contained approximately 4.7 million complete patient records from 224 family practices in England.” Despite inaccuracies in the initial methodological description, the findings and implications of this study are unaltered.
