Correction

December 23, 2007

In an article on genetic counseling that appeared in the Dec. 21 edition of The Sun in Howard County, Dr. Robert Atlas of Mercy Medical Center was incorrectly quoted when he explained why some patients opt against testing for the Huntington's chorea gene. The quote should have read: "If a parent carries it, you have a 50-50 chance of inheriting it." Further, an individual who inherits the gene will develop the disease.

The Sun regrets the error.
