In the article (1) on aging in serous ovarian carcinomas in the August 2009 issue, there were minor errors in the legends for Figs. 1 and 2. The correct legends follow.

Figure 1.

A. age-specific incidence rates for SOC stratified by grade (SEER, 1990-2005). Log rates (at 174-year intervals) per 100,000 woman-years are plotted on the Y-axis, age-at-diagnosis on the X-axis; 95%CI (dotted lines). P < 0.001 (α = 0.05) for ageinteraction by grade. B. age-adjusted (standardized) incidence rates of SOC stratified by grade (SEER, 1990-2005). Rates per 100,000 woman-years (at 4 4-year time intervals) are plotted on the Y-axis, year of diagnosis on the X-axis; 95% CI (dotted lines).

Figure 2.

Fitted age-specific incidence rate curves (adjusted for period and cohort effects) for SOC stratified by grade and stage (SEER, 1990-2005). Log rates per 100,000 woman-years are plotted on the Y-axis, age-at-diagnosis on the X-axis; 95% CI (dotted lines). A. all stages. B. early stage (I-II). C. late stage (III-IV).
