Correction

November 29, 2003

An article in Monday's editions of The Sun on new cholesterol drugs incorrectly stated that high doses of vitamin B6 can increase the body's levels of high-density lipoproteins (HDL). Large doses of B6 do not increase HDL and can cause nerve damage. High doses of vitamin B3 can boost HDL levels.

The Sun regrets the error.
