In the December 2009 issue of HEPATOLOGY, regarding the original article “Public health impact of antiviral therapy for hepatitis C in the United States” (HEPATOLOGY 2009;50:1750–1755; DOI: 10.1002/hep.23220), please note the following discrepancies in Table 2.

Data in Table 2 for the years 2003 and 2004 were inadvertently switched; the correct values can be seen below. These data now correspond accurately with Figure 2. All Markov projections were based upon these original (correct) data.
