Article excerpt

Toussaint et al. discovered an error in a spreadsheet formula that affected some of the results in their paper [Chronic Toxicity of Chloroform to Japanese Medaka Fish. Environmental Health Perspectives 109:35-40 (2001)]. The intrahepatic level of chloroform at the 0.151 mg/L aquaria concentration was erroneously reported at 33 and 133 mg chloroform/g fish liver; the correct concentrations of chloroform in these two fish livers were 0.8 and 3.3 mg chloroform/kg fish liver. At the 1.463 mg/L aquaria chloroform concentration, the intrahepatic concentrations were incorrectly reported as 23, 26, 35, 41, 128, 144, 159, 194, and 219 mg/g fish liver. The correct intrahepatic concentrations for the 1.463 mg/L fish are 0.50, 0.58, 0.65, 1.03, 3.19, 3.59, 3.98, 4.84, and 5.48 mg chloroform/kg fish liver. Additionally, the chloroform peak in Figure 3 was incorrectly labeled; it should read 0.50 mg CH[Cl.sub.3]/kg fish liver (see correct figure below).
