The article “Prealbumin: A Marker for Nutritional Evaluation” (April 15, 2002, page 1575) contained an error in the daily measurement of kilocalories administered via percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube feeding. On page 1577, in the second paragraph under the subheading “Illustrative Case,” the second sentence should read: PEG tube feeding was commenced at 1,700 kcal per day.
