Incorrect Unit in Laboratory Value

JAMA. 2018;319(8):833. doi:10.1001/jama.2018.0981

In the US Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement entitled “Screening for Preeclampsia: US Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement”1 published in the April 25, 2017, issue of JAMA, a unit reported with a laboratory value was incorrect. Near the end of the “Screening Tests” subsection of the “Clinical Considerations” section, “protein to creatinine ratio of ≥0.3 mg/mmol” should have read “protein to creatine ratio of ≥0.3 [each measured as mg/dL].” This article was corrected online.
