In the article, “Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1 and Tissue-Plasminogen Activator in Minority Adolescents with Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity,” by Vatcharapan Umpaichitra, et al., Pediatric Research 2005: 58:483–487, the following changes were not made to the article. The editors regret the error.

  1. 1

    Author affiliations should read: Department of Pediatrics [V.U.], The Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center, Brooklyn, NY 11212; Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology [M.M.H.], Department of Pediatrics [S.C.], State University of New York Health Science Center at Brooklyn (SUNY Downstate), Brooklyn, NY 11203

  2. 2

    In the Abstract, the sentence beginning “PAI-1 activities were significantly …” should read: PAI-1 activities were significantly greater in patients than in control subjects [fasting, 23.4 ± 2.6 versus 12.9 ± 2.0 U/mL (p < 0.004); AUC, 101.7 ± 12.1 versus 57.6 ± 6.5 U · h · mL−1 (p < 0.003)].

  3. 3

    In the section “Fat-loading tests and measurements,” the line beginning “(0.05 vol or 20% …” should read: (0.05 vol or 20% acetic acid:1 vol of plasma) to acidify the plasma.

    In the same section, the sentence beginning “Immunologic marker determinations” should read: Immunologic marker determinations (glutamic acid decarboxylase antibodies, islet cell autoantibodies, and insulin autoantibodies) were determined by RIA in the patients with diabetes and were all negative.

  4. 4

    In the section “Postprandial state,” the sentence beginning Total cholesterol, … should read: Total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol AUCs did not differ between the two groups [28.5 ± 2.1 versus 25.9 ± 1.2 mmol · h · L−1 (p = NS); 6.0 ± 0.3 versus 7.1 ± 0.4 mmol · h · L−1 (p = NS); 16.9 ± 2.0 versus 14.8 ± 1.4 mmol · h · L−1 (p = NS), respectively).

  5. 5

    In the Figure 1 legend, all of the h−1 should be h.
