In an article by Krämer et al (Circ Res. 2002;90:770–776), “Angiotensin II Receptor–Independent Antiinflammatory and Antiaggregatory Properties of Losartan: Role of the Active Metabolite EXP3179,” a collaborator who contributed significantly to the work was not listed in the authorship of the manuscript. In a petition to the journal, the authors stated their omission of Dimitrios Tsikas, Department of Clinical Pharmacology, Hannover Medical School, Hannover, Germany, as a coauthor of this work.
The corrected authorship should read: Christine Krämer, Julia Sunkomat, Jana Witte, Maren Luchtefeld, Michael Walden, Boris Schmidt, Dimitrios Tsikas, Rainer H. Böger, Wolf-Georg Forssmann, Helmut Drexler, and Bernhard Schieffer. In addition, there is an error in the abstract of the work. Prostaglandin F2α was measured using GC-MS and not LC-MS, as stated incorrectly in the abstract.
