In this editorial, on page 755, right column, 8 lines from the bottom, “Ang II” should be replaced with “Ang(1-7)” so that the sentence reads “In cardiac myocytes, Ang(1-7) has been reported to have antihypertrophic effects (10), whereas in cardiac fibroblasts, the heptapeptide inhibits collagen production, expression of “secondary” growth factor genes, and Ang II-stimulated cardiomyocyte hypertrophy that is dependent on factors released from cardiac fibroblasts (11).”
The author apologizes for this error.
