In the article by V. Balz et al., titled “Is the p53 Inactivation Frequency in Squamous Cell Carcinomas of the Head and Neck Underestimated? Analysis of p53 Exons 2–11 and Human Papillomavirus 16/18 E6 Transcripts in 123 Unselected Tumor Specimens,” which appeared in the March 15, 2003 issue of Cancer Research (pp. 1188–1191), the HPV 18 E6 PCR primers for both HPV 18 E6 and HPV 16 E6 were misstated in Table 2. The correct Table 2 appears below.

In the article by T. Liu et al., titled “Macrophage Inhibitory Cytokine 1 Reduces Cell Adhesion and Induces Apoptosis in Prostate Caner Cells,” which appeared in the August 15, 2003 issue of Cancer Research (pp. 5034–5040), the name of one of the contributing authors was misspelled. The correct spelling is Susan Pankhurst.
