To the Editor I write to acknowledge inconsistent reporting of potential conflict of interest disclosures in an Editorial1 and Letter,2 both published in JAMA Pediatrics. In the manuscript I submitted for the Editorial,1 I had disclosed that I receive book royalties and that my work is funded by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation. However, the funding information was erroneously removed by a manuscript editor during the editing process. I did not disclose this information in the Letter in Reply2 that was subsequently published. In each of these, 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 this has caused and have requested that these articles be corrected online.
