De Smet HR, Menadue MF, Oliver JR, and Phillips PA. Increased thirst and vasopressin secretion after myocardial infarction in rats. Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol 285: R1203–R1211, 2003; doi:10.1152/ajpregu.00098.2003 (http://ajpregu.physiology.org/cgi/content/full/285/5/R1203).
In methods, in the section AVP Study, the groups were not described accurately at the beginning of the paragraph. The paragraph should have read: “The first six rats were randomly allocated to water ad libitum at 1 wk or water deprivation at 1 wk after infarct induction. The remaining rats (n = 60) were allocated randomly to one of four treatment groups: 1) water ad libitum at 1 wk after infarct induction; 2) water deprivation at 1 wk; 3) water ad libitum at 8 wk; and 4) water deprivation at 8 wk. Rats were placed in metabolism cages for the same measurements as above. A 3-day acclimatization period was allowed before the 24-h treatment. Rats were killed at the end of the 24-h treatment period as described above.”
This has no impact on the important comparisons that are made between the water deprivation and water ad libitum results at each time point and the relationship between infarct size and AVP level within each individual time point. These remain unchanged.
I acknowledged the contribution of L. Arnolda and D. McKitrick in the study design and teaching the snare technique for myocardial infarction to H. De Smet. I apologize for making this acknowledgement without the permission of L. Arnolda or D. McKitrick and the misrepresentation implied.
While the research was conducted with the understanding that full Ethics Committee approval was in place for the project as reported, it has become clear that continuous approval of the project as reported was not in place because a change to the protocol involving the number of animals studied and the length of observations was not reported to the Ethics Committee due to an administrative oversight. Subsequent investigation by the Animal Welfare Committee at Flinders University exonerated the investigators from any research misconduct.
This corrigendum was authored solely by one author of the paper: Paddy A. Phillips, Dept. of Medicine, Flinders Medical Centre, Bedford Park, SA, 5042 Australia (e-mail:).

The name of fourth author is not in the correct order. It should be Lutgarde Arckens.
