In the September 2007 issue, in the article by Rubenfire et al, “Transition From IV Epoprostenol to Subcutaneous Treprostinil in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension: A Controlled Trial” (Chest 2007; 132:757–763), the wording of the Abstract in the print edition, lines 10 and 11 is incorrect. It should read: “Seven of 8 patients (88%) withdrawn to placebo had clinical deterioration, while only 1 of 14 patients (7%) withdrawn to SC treprostinil had clinical deterioration (p = 0.00023 based on a treatment comparison of time to deterioration).” The pdf version online is correct and should be used.

In the August 2007 issue, in the article by Kenneally et al, “Analysis of 30-Day Mortality for Clostridium difficile-Associated Disease in the ICU Setting” (Chest 2007; 132:418–424), the spelling of one of the authors is incorrect. It should be Wendi E. McKinzie, PharmD.

Conflict of Interest: a Full Disclosure

We have come to realize that we neglected to provide as full a potential conflict of interest statement as we could have. We apologize for that and wish to disclose the following: As the primary author of the article “Hypertensive Crises: Challenges and Management,”1 Dr. Marik discloses that he has received stipends and travel allowances for lectures at medical grand rounds and national meetings from ESP Pharma, who market the antihypertensive drug nicardipine. Dr. Varon discloses that he has received honoraria for lectures from PDL Pharmaceuticals and has served as a consultant for The Medicines Company and participated as an investigator in the Velocity Trial, which was sponsored by The Medicines Company. These companies have developed and marketed nicardipine and clevidipine.
