To the Editors:
The letter by Garattini et al (The Bayesian Model on HPV Vaccination in Italy Lacks Transparency) being published in this issue of Medical Care gave us the opportunity to reread our entire paper (Favato G, Baio G, Capone A, et al. Novel Health Economic Evaluation of a Vaccination Strategy to Prevent HPV-related Diseases: The BEST Study. Med Care. 2012;50:1076–1085) and check every reference reported in the study. Unfortunately, we discovered that, due to our error, some of the references listed in Table 1 were misaligned in the published paper. The corrected table can be found in this issue in our response to the letter by Garattini et al (Transparency or Proper Study Valuation Procedures Missed?).
We regret the error and appreciate the opportunity to correct it.
