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.

Correction to typographical error in figure 1

Since the paper has been published the authors have noted that there is a typographical error in figure one. The words 'intervention' and 'control' have accidentally been put in the wrong box. It should read allocated to control (n=250) allocated to intervention (n=788).
