There were 2 errors in the supplement, "Fracture Prevention in Osteoporosis." First, in Figure 1 on page S192 of the article "Assessment of the Prevalence and Costs of Osteoporosis Treatment Options in a Real-world Setting," by Diana Brixner, PhD, RPh,(2006;12[suppl 7]:S191-S198), the bars representing the VERTNA [Vertebral Efficacy With Risedronate Therapy-North America] study were inadvertently switched with the placebo bars. Second, in the same figure, the acronym VERT-MIN was incorrect; the correct acronym is VERT-MN [Vertebral Efficacy With Risedronate Therapy-Multinational]. The corrected figure appears below.
