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.

The modified description for FMD serotype Asia1 epidemic situation

Xin Yang   (2012-08-31 14:03)  Sichuan University email

There was an inappropriate description for the epidemic situation of Asia1 FMDV in China (the first sentence of the second paragraph in Background of the paper "FMD serotype Asia1 has been epidemic in China for more than 50 years" ) . The truth is that the first serotype Aisa1 FMDV of China was isolated in 1958. After that, there was no reports about the Asia 1 FMDV untill the year of 2005. So we modified the sentence to "In China, the first FMDV serotype Asia1 was isolated in 1958 ".
