It's never too late to alert us to an error. The authors of this paper published nearly two years ago (Apoor S Gami and colleagues) recently noticed an error in their article (BMJ 2003;326:528-9). In the table, the number of diabetic patients randomised in the WOSCOPS trial should read 76 (not 1037, as was stated). The authors state that the results and conclusions of their systematic review were not affected by this error.
