To the Editor I write to acknowledge inconsistent reporting of potential conflict of interest disclosures in several articles and Letters I published in JAMA Oncology during the past 2 years.1-7 In some cases, I included relevant disclosures; in others I did not include all relevant disclosures, or disclosures were added following prompting by a manuscript editor, or funding was erroneously removed by a manuscript editor during the editing process. In each of these cases, my disclosure statement should have read as follows: “Dr Prasad reports receiving royalties from his book Ending Medical Reversal; that his work is funded by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation; that he has received honoraria for Grand Rounds/lectures from several universities, medical centers, and professional societies; and that he is not compensated for his work at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Portland, Oregon, or the Health Technology Assessment Subcommittee of the Oregon Health Authority.” I apologize for any confusion that this has caused and have requested that these articles be corrected online.8
