In the November 1998 issue, the article “Sympathetic Nervous Response Relative to the Adenosine Triphosphate Supply-Demand Imbalance During Exercise Is Augmented in Patients With Heart Failure” (CHEST 1998; 114:1295–1300), by Kinugawa and colleagues, requires a correction. Rest and peak plasma hypoxanthine (HX) levels, depicted in Table 2 (p 1297), should be increased by a factor of 10. The ratio of change in plasma norepinephrine to change in plasma hypoxanthine (Δplasma NE/Δplasma HX), shown on the y axis of Figure 1 (p 1298), should range from 0 to 600 instead of 0 to 6000.

In the February 1999 issue, the article “Asbestosis: A Marker for the Increased Risk of Lung Cancer Among Workers Exposed to Asbestos,” (CHEST 1999; 115:536–549) by Weiss, contained an error. On page 540, in the second paragraph, the sentence beginning“ In the age group 40 to 69 years” should read “In the latency group 40 to 69 years.”

In the January 1999 issue, the article “Pharmacokinetics of Rifampin Under Fasting Conditions, With Food, and With Antacids” (Chest 1999; 115:12–18), by Peloquin and colleagues, requires a correction. Rifampin (RIF) is stable in human serum for > 6 h at room temperature, not > 24 h. Rifampin begins to decay by 24 h. This correction does not change the results in any manner.
