An article yesterday about National Institutes of Health bioethicists' recommendations for prioritizing the distribution of bird flu vaccines and antivirals should have said the Bush administration predicted that, in a worst-case scenario, as many as 2 million Americans could die during an outbreak, not 40 million.

A photo caption in the sports section yesterday misidentified a Gilman lacrosse player. The player shown with McDonogh's Andrew Feinberg is Peter Rogers.

An Associated Press story in Tuesday's Sun reported on the reactions of lesbian women and heterosexual men and women when sniffing chemicals derived from human hormones. One paragraph in that article was based on a chart in a research study that indicated different perceptions of the chemicals. While there were significant differences in how the brains of homosexual and heterosexual participants reacted to the chemicals, the story should also have included the conclusion that indicated differences in individual perceptions - such as pleasantness and irritability - were not statistically significant.

The Sun regrets the errors.
