In the scientific statement by Hlatky et al, “Criteria for Evaluation of Novel Markers of Cardiovascular Risk: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association,” which published ahead of print on April 13, 2009, and appeared in the May 5, 2009, issue (Circulation. 2009;119:2408–2416), several corrections were needed.
On page 2408, Yuling Hong, MD, PhD, FAHA, should be included as an author. On page 2415, Dr Hong’s disclosure information has been added to Writing Group Disclosure table. At the time of the development of the statement, Dr Hong was employed by the American Heart Association and had no disclosures to report. Dr Hong’s current employment is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Ga.
These corrections have been made to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://circ.ahajournals.org/cgi/content/full/119/17/2408.
The American Heart Association regrets this omission.
