Misleading Statements

JAMA. 2002;287(11):1401. doi:10.1001/jama.287.11.1401

In the response letter from Bagnall et al to Goudsmit in the December 26, 2001, issue of THE JOURNAL (2001;286:3079), there were 2 misleading statements. First, the sentence that reads, "It is unclear how many of those excluded were in the treatment and control groups," should instead have read, "It is unclear which exclusions occurred in the treatment group and which in the control group." Second, the sentence that reads, "Finally, the reference we presented for the London criteria was provided to us by Dr Goudsmit," was printed in error and should be retracted.
