OMICS Publishing Group | Full-text | Surgical Site Infections in Relation to the Timing of Shaving among the Gastrointestinal Emergency Patients through the Midline Incisions- A Randomized Controll... | Journal of Medical Microbiology & Diagnosis | Scoop.it

Surgical sites infections" is a very important chapter in our day to day common surgical practice. The "Guideline for Prevention of Surgical Site Infection, 1999" presents the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s recommendations for the prevention of surgical site infections (SSIs), formerly called surgical wound infections. Surgical Site Infection (SSI) may be defined as the infection of the wound characterized by the invasion of organism through tissues following a breakdown of local and systemic host defenses. Or, SSI is infection at the site of surgical procedure within 30 days of operation but may be within one year if prosthetic or implant surgery is performed.

Research Article Open Access Isolation of Bacteriophage against Currently Circulating Strains of Acinetobacter baumannii

Research Article	Open Access Isolation of Bacteriophage against Currently Circulating Strains of Acinetobacter baumannii | Journal of Medical Microbiology & Diagnosis | Scoop.it

We successfully isolated bacteriophage active against clinical strains of Acinetobacter baumannii by enrichichment from activated sewage sludge using representatives of those strains. Purified bacteriophage suspensions obtained were tested on a range of clinical isolates that included representatives of multiple strains of each of the international clonal lineages, as well as minor and sporadic strains. Most representatives of the South East clone, a successful sublineage belonging to international clone II, and a representative of a further strain belonging to international clone II were susceptible to the phage, while further strains belonging to this lineage, as well as those from other lineages were not susceptible.

Toxoplasma Gondii Infection among Pregnant Women in Guangdong Province, Subtropical Southern China

Toxoplasma Gondii Infection among Pregnant Women in Guangdong Province, Subtropical Southern China | Journal of Medical Microbiology & Diagnosis | Scoop.it

Toxoplasmosis, a zoonotic disease of humans and most animals with a worldwide distribution, is caused by the opportunistic intercellular parasite T. gondii. The main routes of transmission in humans are ingestion of tissue cysts in undercooked or oocyst contaminated food and through placental transmission to the fetus.When the infection occurs in pregnant women, it can cause severe disease symptomatology including toxoplasmic encephalitis, blindness, fetal abnormalities, abortion and even stillbirth. Previous reports showed that 39% of fetuses showed subclinical or clinical infection when the pregnant women acquired the infection for the first time.

Predatory publishers are corrupting open access

Predatory publishers are corrupting open access | Journal of Medical Microbiology & Diagnosis | Scoop.it
Journals that exploit the author-pays model damage scholarly publishing and promote unethical behaviour by scientists, argues Jeffrey Beall.
Journal of Medical Microbiology & Diagnosis's insight:



I was surprised when one of our editors told me that the name of Ashdin Publishing is found in the list of "Beall's List: Potential, possible, or probable predatory scholarly open-access publishers" (http://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/) and I was surprised because of the following reasons:

The author did not just mention the criteria for determining predatory open-access publishers, but he insisted on mentioning the full names and details of the publishers as well.Some of these criteria, for determining predatory open-access publishers, can be applied on a huge number of publishers (include some of the large and famous ones), but he did not mention any of them.Some of the publishers names are removed from this list without saying the reasons for this removal.

After I received the e-mail below, I am not any more surprised. Now, I am sure that the author, irrespective the good reasons he may has for preparing this list, wants to blackmail small publishers to pay him. 


I invite all of you to read what people say commenting on his article (http://www.nature.com/news/predatory-publishers-are-corrupting-open-access-1.11385)Nature is removed and constantly removing the negative posts against Beals article. http://www.nature.com/news/report?article=1.11385&comment=52626 ;

Dr Gillian Dooley (Special Collections Librarian at Flinders University):

Jeffrey Beall's list is not accurate to believe. There are a lot of personal biases of Jeffrey Beall. Hindawi still uses heavy spam emailing. Versita Open still uses heavy spam emailing. But these two publishers have been removed in Jeffrey Beall's list recently. There is no reason given by Jeffrey Beall why they were removed. Jeffrey Beall is naive in his analysis. I think some other reliable blog should be created to discuss more fruitfully these issues. His blog has become useless.

Mark Robinson (Acting Editor, Stanford Magazine):

It is a real shame that Jeffrey Beall using Nature.com's blog to promote his predatory work. Jeffrey Beall just simply confusing us to promote his academic terrorism. His list is fully questionable. His surveying method is not scientific. If he is a real scientist then he must do everything in standard way without any dispute. He wanted to be famous but he does not have the right to destroy any company name or brand without proper allegation. If we support Jeffrey Beall's work then we are also a part of his criminal activity. Please avoid Jeffrey Beall's fraudulent and criminal activity.

Now a days anyone can open a blog and start doing things like Jeffrey Beall which is harmful for science and open access journals. Nature should also be very alert from Jeffrey Beall who is now using Nature's reputation to broadcast his bribery and unethical business model.

Now, I invite all of you in order to take all precautions and not being misled by this blackmailer.

Bioinformatic Analyses of 2009-2010 Pandemic H1N1 Influenza A Hemagglutinin Subsets

Bioinformatic Analyses of 2009-2010 Pandemic H1N1 Influenza A Hemagglutinin Subsets | Journal of Medical Microbiology & Diagnosis | Scoop.it

We report here an analysis of mutations in the 2009-2010 pandemic H1N1 influenza Ahemagglutinin gene (HA) based upon information entropy (H), Mutual Information (MI) and geography. The purpose of this study is to determine whether the processes that dominated the evolution of the pandemic virus were either non-random or random. The complete pandemic dataset was bisected into two subsets according to the nucleotide occupying the position of maximum H. The resulting subsets were almost disjoint with respect to overall H distribution, with correlation of H less than that of randomly formed subsets.
