AB In the clinical note titled, "Depression of Poison Ivy Skin Tests by Measles Vaccine," published Dec 16 (206:2739-2741), the table on p 2741 is misleading. The values under "ABCD" in the second through fifth columns should not have contained commas. Rather, each numeral relates to the acetone dilution proportion (designated A, B, C, or D) under which it appears. Thus, for subject 1 the reading under the second column should be 4443; these values sum to 15, and when this is subtracted from the lowest value for the subject (3220 [sum 7], in the fourth column) it gives the unit-change value for the sixth column (4443 [sum 15] — 3220 [sum 7] = 8, for subject 1).
