The Original Article was published on 07 November 2013

In the November 2013 issue, the article entitled “Trial designs advance to overcome bitter pill of placebo effect” (Nat. Med. 19, 1353, 2013) incorrectly quoted Richard Pops as saying that SPCD trials enable power with smaller ends, when it should have said a smaller number of subjects. The error has been corrected in the HTML and PDF versions of the article.
