Errors in Methods and Results

JAMA Surg. 2020;155(5):455. doi:10.1001/jamasurg.2020.0556

The Research Letter titled “Evaluation of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Early Detection Via Mammography Screening and Outcomes in African American and White American Patients,”1 published online February 19, 2020, included an error in the Methods section and another in the Results section. The Methods section notes the date of study termination as April 30, 2018. In fact, it was September 14, 2018. The Results section notes a median (range) follow-up time as 50.3 (1-36) months for African American patients; this should have been reported as 50.3 (1-91) months. Both errors have been corrected online.
