The abstract to the article “Circulating Interferon-gamma and White Matter Brain Damage in Preterm Infants,” by Ingrid Elisabet Hansen-Pupp, et al., appearing in Pediatric Research 2005; 58:946–952 was printed with errors. Corrections to the abstract appear below. The editors regret the error.

The sentence beginning “Pro-inflammatory and modulatory …,” should read: Pro-inflammatory [tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), interferon-γ (IFN-γ), IL-1β, IL-2, IL-6, IL-8, IL-12] and modulatory (IL-4, IL-10) cytokines were analyzed from cord blood, and at 6, 24 and 72 h postnatal age.

The sentence beginning “Severe intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) …,” should read: Severe intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) was associated with increase in AUC [(IL-6) and (IL-8), odds ratio (OR) 2.8 and 13.2 respectively], whereas white matter brain damage (WMD) was associated with increase in AUC (IFN-γ; OR, 26.0).
