To the Editor: We wish to inform the readers of an error in the reference book titled Cancer Chemotherapy Protocols by R. Ignoffo and P. Forni. This handbook was given out to health care professionals at the recent ONS, ASCO, and ASHP annual meetings as an educational service by Cetus Corporation. In section 7 of "Chronic Leukemias" (the pulse CP regimen), the dose of chlorambucil should be 0.4 mg/kg po day 1 every other week, not 0.4 mg/kg po qd every other week. The prednisone dose is still 100 mg po days 1 to 7 every other week. We apologize
