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 horizontal axis in Figure 2, and in Figure 3, is the beta-weighted sum of Z-scores (i.e., the linear predictor minus its intercept) not the linear predictor (lp) as stated in the legend. In Figure 2, for example, the probability of HCH is plotted versus lp+1.21; not versus lp.
