Low dose of inhaled steroids and prevention of asthma death

Statistics from Altmetric.com

In the paper by J C Kips and R A Pauwels entitled “Low dose inhaled corticosteroids and the prevention of death from asthma” which appeared in the 2001 Year in Review published as Supplement II in September 2001 (Thorax 2001;56(Suppl II):ii74–ii78), an error occurred in the abstract of the Introductory article by Suissa et al (

). In the Results section it is stated that “... the rate of death from asthma decreased by 2% with each additional canister of inhaled corticosteroids used in the previous year ...”. This should have read “... the rate of death from asthma decreased by 21% with each additional canister of inhaled corticosteroids used in the previous year ...”. The publishers apologise for this error.
