In the article appearing in volume 22, pages 1045-1052 of Menopause, entitled “Body composition and bone mineral density after ovarian hormone suppression with or without estradiol treatment,” there was an error.
On page 1047, the text under Methods section is incorrect. The correct text is as follows:
Blood samples for sex hormones were collected during baseline testing and on week 20 of the intervention. Collection samples were stored at −80°C until analysis. Estrone (E1) was determined by radioimmunoassay (Diagnostic Systems Laboratory, Webster, TX) with intra-assay and inter-assay coefficients of variation of 8.7% and 8.6%. E2 (4.3% and 8.2%), progesterone (4.4% and 7.9%), sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG; 3.6% and 5.7%) and total testosterone (2.1% and 5.1%) were analyzed by chemiluminescence immunoassay (Access 2 Immunoassay System Analyzer, Beckman Coulter Inc, Fullerton, CA).
This has been corrected in the online version of the article.
