In the Hypertension article by Fava et al (Fava C, Sjögren M, Montagnana M, Danese E, lmgren P, Engström G, Nilsson P, Hedblad B, Guidi GC, Minuz P, Melander O. Prediction of Blood Pressure Changes Over Time and Incidence of Hypertension by a Genetic Risk Score in Swedes. Hypertension. 2013;61:319–326), a correction was needed to the online-only Data Supplement.
In Table S2, there are several errors in the assignment of coded and noncoded alleles for the SNPs included in the genetic risk score. The errors refer only to the table, whereas the genetic risk score was correctly calculated.
The corrected Data Supplement was uploaded online on February 14th, 2013 with the corrected coded and noncoded alleles.
The authors apologize for the error.
