The In Reply by Drs Kahn and Lagakos to the series of Letters entitled
"Outcomes of a Trial of HIV-1 Immunogen in Patients With HIV Infection" published
in the May 2, 2001, issue of THE JOURNAL (2001;285:2191-2195) contained incorrect
text. On page 2194, in the last paragraph in column 1, the 4-sentence block
of text that begins with "However, all this misses a basic point: . . . "
and concludes with the sentence that begins "Only IRC can provide the reasons
why . . . " was inadvertently included and should be deleted. With the exception
of these 4 sentences, the published version of the last 4 paragraphs of the
In Reply was reviewed by officials at IRC, as was stated in the Editor's Note
that accompanied the series of letters.
