Incorrect Language and Data

JAMA. 2013;310(1):99. doi:10.1001/jama.2013.7498

In the Original Contribution entitled “Clinical Ascertainment of Health Outcomes Among Adults Treated for Childhood Cancer,” published in the June 12, 2013, issue of JAMA (2013;309[22]:2371-2381. doi:10.1001/jama.2013.6296), language and data were incorrect. In the Methods section, the last sentence beneath the Validation and Classification of Medical Events heading should have read, “Chronic health conditions were classified using National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0 as mild (grade 1), moderate (grade 2), serious/disabling (grade 3), or life-threatening (grade 4).” In the Results section, the third sentence of the second paragraph under the Prevalence and Severity of Organ Dysfunction heading should have read, “The prevalence was 56.4% (95% CI, 52.5%-60.1%) for disorders affecting the HPA….” In the “HPA disorders” row in Table 2, the data should have been reported as 171 (25.0) [21.7-28.2] in the Before column, as 211 (30.8) [27.3-34.3] in the Related column, as 4 (0.6) [0.4-1.1] in the After column, and as 386 (56.4) [52.6-60.1] in the Overall Prevalence column.
