Lithium Therapy for Alcoholism: Further Study Assistance

      “A Controlled Study of Lithium Carbonate in the Treatment of Alcoholism,” an article published in the February 1989 issue of the Proceedings (pages 177 to 180), was the result of a conjoint effort of several scientists at the Mayo Clinic. It has been called to our attention that my colleagues and I inadvertently omitted recognition of the early contribution of Alan H. Rosenbaum, M.D., a former consultant in the Department of Psychiatry and Psychology, who helped with some aspects of the research. We wish to acknowledge his contribution at this time.
