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.

Clarification of study codes

Edward Whitney   (2010-12-23 18:19)  Colorado Division of Workers Compensation email

Some clarification is needed. The pregabalin studies are referred to not by author but by a code. I am in possession of Rosenstock et al (reference #15), and I notice that it enrolled 76 patients on pregabalin 100 mg tid, with 70 patients on placebo. I infer that this is “DPN-131,” though I find this code nowhere in the Rosenstock article, nor do I find a key to the code on the website.
Can this be clarified?
