    Please note that some of the statistics have been incorrectly presented.

    In the Results section of the abstract on page 1046, the first sentence should read:
    "An immediate effect evident within the first 2 days following a severely negative life event increased the risk of a new asthma attack by a factor of 4.69, 95% confidence interval 2.33 to 9.44 (p <_0.001. p="p"> The third sentence should read:
    "In addition to the immediate effect, an increased risk of 1.81 (95% confidence interval 1.24 to 2.65) was found 5�7 weeks after a severe event (p=0.002)".

    On page 1049 the third paragraph should read:
    "The effect of a severely negative life event was as follows. The immediate effect corresponding to 1�2 days after the event increased the risk of a new asthma exacerbation by a factor of 4.69 (95% confidence interval 2.33 to 9.44) which was statistically significant (p <_0.001 whereas="whereas" the="the" effect="effect" for="for" days="days" _310="_310" after="after" event="event" was="was" not="not" statistically="statistically" significant="significant" p="p" risk="risk" of="of" an="an" asthma="asthma" attack="attack" varied="varied" considerably="considerably" between="between" children="children" frailty="frailty" term="term" highly="highly" p0.001.="p0.001."> The errors are much regretted.
