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 the Table 4 (typos)

All percentages of prescribing quality scores presented in the table 4 are calculated and shown correctly. However, there have been two typos made in the last steps of manuscript peer-reveiw when providing additional information requested by the reviewers. We apologize for not noticing this earlier.

1.The numerators and denominators for the scores of PQI-1 based on diagnostic codes and clinical measurement are swapped:
93(90-95)numerator and denominator should be:905/984
81(78-83)numerator and denominator should be:1412/1749

2.The numerator for the PQI-3 Prescription of metformin in overweight T2DM patients: should read 139 and not 39: 65(59-72),139/213.
