An article in yesterday's editions about tests of inhaled flu vaccine on schoolchildren incorrectly reported the role that MedImmune Inc., the manufacturer of the vaccine, played in the study. A company employee designed the study and reviewed results before publication, but was not involved in data collection.

A photo caption in Wednesday's Today section accompanying an art review of works by Smadar Livne and Joyce Ellen Weinstein misstated the venue's location. The Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Jewish Community Center is at 5700 Park Heights Ave. in Baltimore.

An article in Tuesday's editions incorrectly reported that the reauthorized Ryan White CARE Act calls for a 5 percent reduction in the $36 million that Maryland received this year in federal HIV/AIDS funding.

Under the act, the federal government may reduce by 5 percent the number of new infections counted in Maryland. This might result in less money for Maryland during the three-year period covered by the legislation. In addition to Maryland, the penalty affects 12 states and the District of Columbia, which had not begun reporting new HIV cases by name, or were late doing so.

The Sun regrets the errors.
