An abstract is the introductory statement of a scientific study. It describes in broad terms what the study is about, and it's conclusions. For most citizen scientists, without subscriptions to the journals, it is much easier to find and read abstracts than full text of papers. Some medical terminology is used, and you may need to consult other references to unwrap what the abstract is talking about.
