In the article “Evaluation of the efficacy and safety of single administration of 4.7-mg deslorelin acetate implants on egg production and plasma sex hormones in Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica)” (Am J Vet Res 2013;74:316–323), the results section of the structured abstract should have read as follows:

Results—Egg production was significantly decreased in the treatment group, compared with the control group, from 2 to 12 weeks after implant injection. Egg production ceased in 6 of 10 quail in the treatment group (mean duration of cessation, 70 days). Plasma androstenedione and 17β-estradiol concentrations were significantly lower on day 29 in the treatment group than in the control group. On day 180, 17β-estradiol concentration was lower in control than in treated birds. No clinically relevant lesions were detected in either group at necropsy.
