In the Hypertension article by Saleh et al (Saleh MA, Boesen EI, Pollock JS, Savin VJ, Pollock, DM. Endothelin-1 Increases Glomerular Permeability and Inflammation Independent of Blood Pressure in the Rat. Hypertension. 2010;56:942–949), 2 transposition errors were made by Dr Saleh in (1) the entry of data in the text listing 24-hour ET-1 excretion rate for the 3 groups of rats, and (2) the units for nephrinuria (Figure 5C). While there were no differences between the 3 groups as reported, actual values presented were urine ET-1 concentrations, not excretion rates. The actual excretion rate values were 9.2±1.6, 8.5±0.9, 7.3±1.0 pg/d for the saline, ET-1, and ET-1+ABT-627 groups, respectively. In Figure 5C, nephrinuria should be presented as μg/day, not ng/day.
All data in the remainder of the manuscript are correct as published.
