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.

Two errors in this article?

I can't find a definition for FORM in the article. it appears for the first time in the Method section on page 3 but does not have a definition. Is there one?

Also, there appears to be an error in Table 1, in the cell combining "Consistency" and "D Poor". It says 'Evidence is consistent' however it should read 'Evidence is inconsistent'.
