Re: QUESTIONABLE COST-EFFECTIVENESS OF STATINS FOR PRIMARY PREVENTION OF CARDIOVASCULAR EVENTS

Our rapid response contained the following typographical errors which
we would like to correct:
(1) Second paragraph of the text, line 8:
“comparison or” should read “comparison of”; (2) Abbreviations of Table 1,
last sentence: the words “report if” should be deleted; (3) Table 2, row
3, paper by Caro et al. (2000): the information on the study sponsor –last
column- should be “Y*” (and not “Y”). We apologise for these errors.
