In the May 2005 issue of Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology, in the article by Smith et al (Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2005:25:1051–1056.), there was an error present in the first sentence of the last paragraph of the Results. The complete sentence, with the correction italicized, is shown below.
“When we repeated the analyses excluding women who were on nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs, corticosteroids, or antibiotics at the time of blood sampling (n=430), or those of the remaining women with a CRP level >10 mg/L (n=136), a total of 566 exclusions, the results did not differ substantively from those presented here.”
