Incorrect Word Affecting Meaning of Sentence

JAMA. 2019;322(18):1830. doi:10.1001/jama.2019.17850

In the USPSTF Recommendation Statement entitled “Risk Assessment, Genetic Counseling, and Genetic Testing for BRCA-Related Cancer: US Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement”1 published in the August 20, 2019, issue of JAMA, an incorrect word affected the meaning of a sentence. In the “Importance” subsection of the “Rationale” section, the sentence that read “Mutations in the BRCA1/2 genes increase breast cancer risk by 45% to 65% by age 70 years” should have read: “Mutations in the BRCA1/2 genes increase breast cancer risk to 45% to 65% by age 70 years.” This article has been corrected online.
