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.

It was a typo. Were analyzed 5 samples from Espiríto Santo State.
Thanks for your contribution.

Clarification of Table 2

In Table 2, for the data analyzed from Espirito Santos, 2008 the number of specimens reported is 4, but the positive samples number reported is 5. Is this a typo, or does it imply more than one sample was taken from one of the 4 specimens- and if so, for what purpose?
Note if this was a typo, and the cumulative positive sample number should be 60 and not 61, then the Positivity should also be changed to (93.75%)
