In an article in the September 2007 issue (1), an error occurred in the reporting of results in one sentence of the abstract.
The fifth sentence should read as follows.
“The median ages at onset were 39 years for the CC genotype and 43 years for the combined CT and TT genotypes and the CT+TT genotypes were associated with a reduced age-associated risk for developing colorectal cancer (hazard ratio, 0.55; 95% confidence interval, 0.36-0.85).”
The changes are underlined.
