Patel JA, Nair S, Revai K, et al. Association of Proinflammatory Cytokine Gene Polymorphisms With Susceptibility to Otitis Media. PEDIATRICS 2006;118:2273–2279.

Errors occurred in the article by Patel et al, titled “Association of Proinflammatory Cytokine Gene Polymorphisms With Susceptibility to Otitis Media,” published in the December 2006 issue of Pediatrics (doi:10.1542/peds.2006-0764). In Tables 2 and 3 on pages 2275 and 2276, respectively, the authors reported the genotypes for TNF-α−308 and IL-6−174 incorrectly. For TNF-α−308, footnote “c” should be assigned to “G/G” and footnote “d” should be assigned to “G/A or A/A.” For IL-6−174, footnote “c” should be assigned to “G/G” and footnote “d” should be assigned to “G/C or C/C.” On page 2277, Discussion section, second paragraph, line 7, “IL-6−174 GG polymorphism” should be replaced with “TNF-α−308 AA/AG polymorphism.”
