First paragraph (this article has no abstract)

After the publication of this work [1], we became aware that two of the twelve studies included in the review [refs 25 and 30] were erroneously described as not having presented outcomes by randomisation (ie those randomised to screening vs those randomised not to be screened). Instead they were described as having presented outcomes according to those who were randomised and who attended vs those randomised not to be screened).
