The article, “Adiponectin and Carotid Intima-Media Thickness in the Northern Manhattan Study” by Gardener et al (Stroke. 2012;43:1123–1125) included an error in the Methods section. The correct text is below as well as in the current online version.
Adiponectin in stored frozen baseline plasma was measured using a commercially available sandwich ELISA (Mercodia, Winston Salem NC; Catalogue No. 10-1193-01). The assay uses standards in the range of 5 to 300 ng/mL; because human sera adiponectin levels are in the microgram per milliliter range, samples were diluted (approximately 1:100) before assay. The intra- and interassay coefficients of variation were <4% and <7%, respectively.
