Erratum for de Lind van Wijngaarden et al.: Chances of Renal Recovery for Dialysis-Dependent ANCA-Associated Glomerulonephritis. J Am Soc Nephrol 18: 2189–2197, 2007. The co-authors regret that Charles D. Pusey was previously omitted as coauthor of this paper by unfortunate accident. He should be a coauthor of this paper.


Erratum for Brimble and Clase: Hemoglobin Variability in Dialysis Patients. J Am Soc Nephrol 18: 2218–2220, 2007. We stated that instability was greater with the shorter than with the longer-acting epoetin in the work of West et al.1 This was not the case: the mean value for patients receiving weekly erythropoietin β was 0.58 g/dl per mo (standard deviation [SD] 0.29 g/dl per mo) and for darbepoetin was 0.68 g/dl per mo (SD 0.26 g/dl per mo).1 A two-sample t test indicated statistical significance at the 5% level (P = 0.03). We gave two references, the second of which was incorrect.

We wrote: “It is probable that longer-acting agents lead to greater stability at a given dose frequency—under the experimental conditions used in the current paper, stability was greater with a longer acting epoietin compared with a shorter-acting agent.1,6” This should be revised to read:

“While one might expect stability, at a given dose frequency, to be greater with a longer-acting agent, data from West et al show that the converse is true.1 This interesting observation warrants further study.”

We apologize for the error.
