Incorrect Compound

JAMA. 2016;315(16):1794. doi:10.1001/jama.2016.4343

In the Editorial entitled “Fish Consumption, Brain Mercury, and Neuropathology in Patients With Alzheimer Disease and Dementia” published in the February 2, 2016, issue of JAMA,1 an incorrect name for a compound was used. A sentence in paragraph 6 twice referred to “α-linoleic acid,” which should be replaced with “α-linolenic acid.” This article was corrected online.
