Erratum to: Mortality due to cardiovascular disease among Apollo lunar astronauts

Aerosp Med Hum Perform. 2017 Nov;88(11):1055.

http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/asma/amhp/2017/00000088/00000011/art00015

Note: From the Erratum: "In the May 2017 issue of Aerospace Medicine and Human Performance the authors reported the results of an investigation of cardiovascular mortality among U.S. astronauts who either completed circumlunar flights or landed on the lunar surface ("lunar astronauts"). We regret to inform readers of AMHP that the standardized mortality ratios comparing lunar astronauts to the U.S. general population presented in Table III of the paper are incorrect. We present here a corrected table using appropriate cause-specific mortality rates. The discussion in the original article, in spite of the error and in light of these corrected results, remains broadly accurate, and the main conclusion in the original article is unchanged: presently there is no credible evidence of increased cardiovascular mortality among astronauts — lunar or otherwise. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this error." The original article was listed in SPACELINE Current Awareness List #745, April 21, 2017. http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/asma/amhp/2017/00000088/00000005/art00010.
