To the Editor The JAMA Clinical Evidence Synopsis “Oral Zinc for the Common Cold,”1 published in the April 9, 2014, issue of JAMA, was based on a Cochrane review published June 18, 2013.2 Because this version of the review was withdrawn from the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews in September 2016,3 we request that the JAMA Clinical Evidence Synopsis article be retracted.
