Journal of Translational Medicine 2007, 5:41  doi:10.1186/1479-5876-5-41

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.

Further development of ADRS for TSE investigation

In the competing interests section of this paper we state that "Radar World Ltd participated on a voluntary basis out of scientific curiosity and is not currently developing a commercial interest in this field". For clarification, this does not mean that ADROK Ltd (formerly Radar World Ltd) have no further interest in this - far from it. They would be very interested in developing this technology further with suitable collaborators, and would invite an approach by anyone who might be interested in developing this for clinical (and/or veterinary) application.

Thank you for choosing an Open Access Journal

I wish to publicly thank the Authors of this important Paper for choosing to publish this in an Open Access Journal.

By making such Papers freely and widely available, I firmly believe will vastly speed up science/research in this regard.

The speed in which this Paper was submitted, Peer Reviewed and published on the internet is a far cry from traditional business models.

Moreover, with this Paper being immediately archived in PubMed and PubMed Central, this is extremely important and the way forward.

I have already alerted many colleagues to this Paper. Without Open Access, I would simply not have been able to do so !!

I sincerely hope that more and more Authors like these ones publish via Open Access and ensure that their work is deposited in an Institutional Repository.

Kind regards,


Graham Steel
