In the EDITORIAL entitled "Visits to China," published in the March 29 issue (235:1368, 1976), an incorrect dose was mentioned. While the dose for hydromorphone hydrochloride (Dilaudid) had been specified as 100 mg by Drs Lehman and Basch, whose article Dr Hussey quotes in the editorial, Dr Lehman later averred that the exact dosage was not known, but that it could not have much exceeded the standard dose.
