New drugs: where did we go wrong and what can we do better?

Some small errors occurred in calculating the absolute numbers from percentages for figure 1 of this article by Beate Wieseler and colleagues (BMJ 2019;366:l4340, doi:10.1136/bmj.l4340, 10 July). The correct numbers are 16 for non-quantifiable benefit, 19 for minor benefit, 33 for considerable benefit, and 21 for major benefit.
