Abstract

The mean time of treatment and follow-up in the Beta Carotene and Retinol Efficacy Trial (CARET) sponsored by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) was 4 years, not 8 years, as might be concluded from the News & Comment article “‘Natural’ cancer prevention trial halted” by Kim Peterson (26 Jan., p. 441). In the same article, the Physician's Health Study was described as NCI “contract research,” when, in fact, it was funded by an investigator-initiated grant.
