In the version of this article that was published on PubMed [1] the author’s name “Mark A. Dane” was formatted incorrectly in the XML mark up and therefore appeared incorrectly on PubMed. In the XML mark up, the middle initial “A” was added as a Particle when it should have been included as a Given Name. Due to this error, the author’s name was incorrectly formatted in PubMed as “A Dane M” and not as “Dane MA”. The author’s name is correct on the BioMed Central website. The author's name in the XML of the original article [1] has been updated accordingly.
