In the Original Contribution entitled "Sodium Reduction and Weight Loss in the Treatment of Hypertension in Older Persons," published in the March 18, 1998, issue of THE JOURNAL (1998;279:839-846), there was an incorrect number in the abstract, a misspelled word in the footnotes, and incorrect phrasing in the "Methods" section. On page 839, in the abstract, under the heading "Participants," the sentence should start "A total of 975 men and women . . . ." On page 839, in column 2, the last sentence in the first footnote should read "A complete list of the participating institutions and principal staff of the TONE Collaborative Research Group is given at the end of this article." On page 841, in column 1, the third sentence under the heading "Data Collection Procedures" should read "Outcome information was obtained by staff members who were blind to the participants' intervention assignment, at different times and different locations from those used for the intervention visits." On page 846, in column 2, in the first paragraph of the acknowledgments, starting with the fifth line, the rest of the paragraph should read "the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, and by General Clinical Research Center grant 5MO1RR00722 from the National Center for Research Resources, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Md."
