In this paper, an analytical inconsistency and typographical errors were noted by the authors. Throughout the paper, the total number of subjects should be 1,837. The distribution by achieved four-month low-density lipoprotein (LDL) should be 181 (10%) >100 mg/dl, 256 (14%) >80 to 100 mg/dl, 576 (31%) >60 to 80 mg/dl, 631 (34%) >40 to 60 mg/dl, and 193 (11%) subjects ≤40 mg/dl. The baseline LDL values listed in Table 1 are correct, but they are incorrect in the second paragraph of the Results section. A corrected Table 2is printed below.
These changes do not affect the Discussion or Conclusions of this paper. The authors regret these errors.
