Incorrect Word in Comment Section

JAMA. 2014;312(5):560. doi:10.1001/jama.2014.9370

In the Original Contribution entitled “Multivitamins in the Prevention of Cancer in Men: The Physicians’ Health Study II Randomized Controlled Trial” published in the November 14, 2012, issue of JAMA (2012;308[18]:1871-1880. doi:10.1001/jama.2012.14641), the word “women” appeared where it should have been “men.” In the Comment section, fifth paragraph, the last sentence should have read as follows: “In addition, the Supplementation en Vitamines et Mineraux Antioxydants (SU.VI.MAX) primary prevention trial39 of 13 017 participants randomized to a low-dose combination of vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene, selenium, and zinc found no overall effect on total cancer, but there was a significant interaction with sex with a reduction in risk of total cancer in men only (relative risk, 0.69; 95% CI, 0.53-0.91).” This article has been corrected online.
