In Appendix Table B1, row 1 ("Abacavir"), column 3 ("Dosing (dosage form)"), "300 mg daily" is incorrect; the correct dosing is 600 mg daily. Also in Appendix Table B1, row 17 ("Tenofovir DF"), column 5 ("Disadvantages"), the text immediately following "Nephrotoxicity" ("should not be administered to individuals with acute or chronic kidney injury or those with eGFR <60") should be deleted. Finally, the correct affiliation for author Ahmed Gomaa is Division of Surveillance, Hazard Evaluation, and Field [not "Health"] Studies, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Cincinnati, Ohio. The authors regret these errors.
