To the editor: A recent study from UCLA, of which I was a coauthor, analyzed prophylactic granulocyte transfusions in neutropenic patients with acute myelogenous leukemia (1). The article should have indicated that most of the UCLA patients also participated in a national study collaboratively designed by investigators from the University of Iowa (R. G. Strauss), the University of Minnesota (C. D. Bloomfield, J. E. Connett, and J. McCullough), Washington University (G. P. Herzig), and UCLA. Results of the national study have been published recently (2).
