PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

The complete affiliation information for University of Tromsø is 'Department of Medical Biology, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Tromsø, Tromsø, Norway'. 

Arnfinn Sundsfjord lacks the following additional affiliation: 'Reference Centre for Detection of Antimicrobial Resistance, University Hospital of North Norway, Tromsø, Norway'.


There is also a minor error in Table 6: in the heading, 'AMP', 'AMC' and 'PIP' have been assigned note 'c'. The correct is note 'd'.
