A recent article (1) had several errors in the results that were caused by errors in the published WinBUGS code. Page 533, Results section of abstract, left column, last 3 lines: “... the rilonacept–placebo attack risk ratio was 0.45 [not 0.59] (SD, 0.13 [not 0.12]) (equal-tail 95% credible interval, 0.26 [not 0.39] to 0.77 [not 0.85]).” Page 535, right column, Statistical Analysis section, 3rd paragraph, lines 5 to 9: “We developed models based on noninformative (log-normal distribution mean, 0 [SD, 10]), enthusiastic (mean, ln(0.5) [not 0.5] [SD, 0.125]), and skeptical (mean, 0 [SD, 0.125]) priors for the attack rate risk ratio (RR) (rilonacept–placebo).” Page 536, Results section, right column, “Primary Outcome” section, lines 7 to 12: “The RR for attacks by Bayesian analysis was 0.45 [not 0.59] (SD, 0.13 [not 0.12]) (equal-tail 95% credible interval, 0.26 [not 0.39] to 0.77 [not 0.85]) for the noninformative model; 0.47 [not 0.42] (SD, 0.11) (equal-tail 95% credible interval, 0.31 [not 0.24] to 0.72 [not 0.68]) for the enthusiastic model; and 0.60 [not 0.40] (SD, 0.13 [not 0.11]) (equal-tail 95% credible interval, 0.40 [not 0.23] to 0.91 [not 0.65]) for the skeptical model.” Page W-169, right column, lines 6 to 8: “RR = Relative risk for the FMF attacks; RR ˜ LN(0,10) using noninformative prior, LN(0,.125) using skeptical and LN(ln(0.5) [not 0.5],.125) for enthusiastic prior”. Page W-169, right column, last 3 lines: “b2[not b32]˜dnorm(0, 0.05 [not 5])”; “ratio1˜dlnorm(0, 0.01 [not 10]) #non-informative”; “#ratio1˜dlnorm(0, 8 [not .125]) # skeptical”. Page W-170, left column, line 1: “#ratio1˜dlnorm(−0.68 [not 0.5], 8 [not .125]) # enthusiastic, Log(.5) = −.68”. Page W-170, left column, line 2: “B2[not B32]˜dnorm(0, 0.05 [not 5])”.
