Extract

To the Editor I have been asked by the JAMA Internal Medicine editorial office to clarify a potential conflict of interest related to my article, “Overdiagnosis in Low-Dose Computed Tomography Screening for Lung Cancer.”1

The issue in question is that I conducted a research project on serum protein biomarkers and indeterminate pulmonary nodules funded by Laboratory Corporation of America through a sponsored research agreement with Duke University, which was fully disclosed on the Duke University website and on the publication. This biomarker study was approved by the instutional review board of Duke University, with a conflict of interest management plan approved by the Duke Research Integrity Office. The study was completed and published online in January 2013.2
