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 info@biomedcentral.com, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Correction of p-value for HbA1c in abstract from 0.01 to 0.02

Tommy J��nsson   (2014-07-16 08:24)  Swedish Health Care email

I am the principal author of "Beneficial effects of a Paleolithic diet on cardiovascular risk factors in type 2 diabetes: a randomized cross-over pilot study" in Cardiovascular Diabetology, and I have just been made aware of an error in the article which I want to correct. The p-value for HbA1c after the Paleolithic diet, when compared in a t-test to after the diabetes diet, was 0.0164807189350042. So the p-value 0.02 for HbA1c presented in Table 3 is correct, and it is incorrectly rounded down and presented as 0.01 in the abstract. The error has no effect on the scientific content and conclusions in the article.
