On page 1539, “Clozapine doses and clozapine PCs” section, second paragraph, line 2, the following sentence was incorrect: “The clozapine PC levels of 67% of patients were outside the proposed reference range (proposed reference range 350–600 ng/mL);28 the levels of 43% were above and 24% of patients had levels below the proposed reference range.” The correct sentence is: “The clozapine PC levels of approximately
67% of patients were outside the proposed reference range (proposed reference range 350–600 ng/mL);7 42% of patients had levels below and 25% of patients had levels above the proposed reference range.”
On page 1541, “Discussion” section, first paragraph, line 2, the following sentence was incorrect: “In contrast to the study by Couchman, in which more PC levels were below the proposed reference range (42.5% under and 28.4% above), in our study more PC levels were above (43% above and 24% under).”
The correct sentence is: “In agreement with the study by Couchman, in which more PC levels were below the proposed reference range (42.5% below and 28.4% above), our study also found more PC levels below (42% below and 25% above).”
