In the Original Investigation by Rahme et al titled "Association Between Naproxen Use and Protection Against Acute Myocardial Infarction," published in the May 27 issue of the ARCHIVES (2002;162:1111-1115), an error occurred in the "Comment" section on page 1115. The last sentence of the third paragraph on that page should have read as follows: "However, Santé Québec (a government public health agency [written communication, 1992-1993]) reports that, during the years of the study, older Quebecois acquired the following agents over the counter (given as proportions of the total numbers of those who used the agents): acetaminophen (5.5%), NSAIDs (0.5%), and aspirin (0.3%)." The journal regrets the error.
