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.

Equation 12 contains errors. In the equation k_min should be replaced by k_1, k_max with k_K and k_K-j with k_K-j+1. Below equation 12, in the description of lambda_j, k_K-j should again be replaced with k_K-j+1. We would like to thank Dr. Finian Bannon at the N. Ireland Cancer Registry for pointing out these errors.
