An information box accompanying an article in Saturday's editions of The Sun on the new Medicare prescription drug plan misstated the gap - or "doughnut hole" - in coverage. The gap - the amount of expenses for which there is no coverage - is from $2,250 to $5,100. The plan pays 95 percent of expenses above $5,100.

An article in Friday's Business section about a stem cell treatment incorrectly described embryonic stem cells as those taken from aborted fetuses. Embryonic stem cells are derived from embryos created when an egg is fertilized in an artificial environment, such as a test tube, not embryos taken from a woman's body.

In Sunday's article on former Loyola High School football player Van Brooks Jr., Dr. Cristina L. Sadowsky's title at Kennedy Krieger Institute's International Center for Spinal Cord Injury was reported incorrectly. She is clinical director. Dr. John McDonald is director of the center.

The Sun regrets the errors.
