Incorrect Information in Abstract and Table

JAMA Psychiatry. 2015;72(8):851. doi:10.1001/jamapsychiatry.2014.2900

In the Original Article titled “Depression and Anxiety as Predictors of 2-Year Cardiac Events in Patients With Stable Coronary Artery Disease” published in the January 2008 issue of JAMA Psychiatry (then Archives of General Psychiatry) (2008;65[1]:62-71), incorrect unadjusted data appeared in the abstract and Table 3. The data that appeared in the abstract should have been as follows: “Of the 804 patients, 57 (7.1%) met the criteria for MDD [major depressive disorder] and 43 (5.3%) for GAD [generalized anxiety disorder] (11 [1.4%] had comorbidity); 220 (27.4%) had elevated BDI-II [Beck Depression Inventory II] scores (≥14), and 333 (41.4%) had elevated HADS-A [Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale] scores (≥8), with 21.1% overlap. Major depressive disorder (odds ratio [OR], 2.55; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.38-4.73), GAD (OR, 2.47; 95% CI, 1.23-4.97), elevated BDI-II (OR, 1.81; 95% CI, 1.20-2.73), elevated HADS-A score (OR, 1.66; 95% CI, 1.12-2.47), and continuous standardized scores on the BDI-II (OR, 1.31; 95% CI, 1.05-1.62) and the HADS-A (OR, 1.43; 95% CI, 1.19-1.73) all predicted MACEs [major adverse cardiac events].” These ORs and 95% CIs should have also appeared in Table 3. Also, the covariate-adjusted ORs and 95% CIs in Table 3 should have been as follows: current MDD (OR, 2.34; 95% CI, 1.18-4.63; P = .02); elevated depression symptoms (BDI-II score ≥14) (OR, 1.63; 95% CI, 1.05-2.54; P = .03); continuous BDI-II score (OR, 1.19; 95% CI, 0.95-1.49; P = .14); GAD (OR, 2.46; 95% CI, 1.14-5.30; P = .02); elevated anxiety symptoms (HADS-A score ≥8) (OR, 1.54; 95% CI, 1.00-2.38; P = .05); and continuous HADS-A score (OR, 1.42; 95% CI, 1.14-1.75; P = .001).
