An article on inhaled corticosteroids in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (1) contained errors in a figure and in a table. In Table 2, the 95% CIs for the difference in mean change in FEV1 should have been reported as follows: Renkema et al., −213.8 to 153.8; Weir et al., −80.6 to 8.0; Pauwels et al., −39.4 to 15.4; Lung Health Study, −11.0 to 5.4; and Burge et al., −21.5 to 3.5. In addition, in Table 2 and Figure 2, respectively, the difference in mean change in FEV1 and the effect estimate should have been reported as −3.1 ± 8.11 (CI, −19.0 to 12.8) for the study by Vestbo et al. and as −5.31 ± 3.0 (CI, −11.2 to 0.64) for all studies. The P value for all studies in Table 2 should have been reported as 0.08.
