In the article by Pennell et al, “Cardiovascular Function and Treatment in β-Thalassemia Major: A Consensus Statement From the American Heart Association,” which published online June 17, 2013, and appeared with the July 16, 2013, issue of the journal (Circulation. 2013;128:281–308), a correction was needed.
On page 294, section 10.2.4, first paragraph, the second sentence read, “There is evidence of a synergistic shuttle effect between deferiprone and deferasirox in improving iron clearance.” It has been changed to read, “There is evidence of a synergistic shuttle effect between deferiprone and deferoxamine in improving iron clearance.” The authors regret the error.
This correction has been made to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://circ.ahajournals.org/content/128/3/281.
