The "refereed" or "peer review" status of a journal comes from the Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory (http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com/), as supplied by the publisher. The term refers to the system of critical evaluation of manuscripts/articles by professional colleagues or peers. The content of refereed publications is sanctioned, vetted, or otherwise approved by a peer-review or editorial board. The peer-review and evaluation system is utilized to protect, maintain, and raise the quality of scholarly material published in serials. Publications subject to the referee process are assumed, then, to contain higher quality content than those that are not.

Reversible acute kidney injury caused by paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria

[More] The authors report a 57-year-old male patient who presented with diarrhea, darkened urine, jaundice and increased blood urea nitrogen and creatinine. Initially, his symptoms, which included hemolytic anemia, acute renal failure and low platelet count, seemed to be caused by renal injuries associated with thrombotic microangiopathy, hemolytic-uremic syndrome in particular. However, a renal biopsy indicated acute tubular necrosis and hemosiderin deposition. A CD55 and CD59 assay, Ham test and sugar-water hemolysis test confirmed the diagnosis of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria. After fluid infusion, diuresis and urine alkalization, the patient gradually regained nearly normal renal function. This case illustrates that paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria may present with acute kidney injury when hemolysis, diarrhea and hemosiderin deposits in the renal tubular epithelial cells and renal tubules are present. Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial to prevent disease progression and irreversible chronic renal failure.

Biological basis of differential susceptibility to hepatocarcinogenesis among mouse strains

Author: Maronpot, RR (2009) HERO ID: 782857

[More] There is a vast amount of literature related to mouse liver tumorigenesis generated over the past 60 years, not all of which has been captured here. The studies reported in this literature have generally been state of the art at the time they were carried out. A PubMed search on the topic "mouse liver tumors" covering the past 10 years yields over 7000 scientific papers. This review address several important topics related to the unresolved controversy regarding the relevance of mouse liver tumor responses observed in cancer bioassays. The inherent mouse strain differential sensitivities to hepatocarcinogenesis largely parallel the strain susceptibility to chemically induced liver neoplasia. The effects of phenobarbital and halogenated hydrocarbons in mouse hepatocarcinogenesis have been summarized because of recurring interest and numerous publications on these topics. No single simple paradigm fully explains differential mouse strain responses, which can vary more than 50-fold among inbred strains. In addition to inherent genetics, modifying factors including cell cycle balance, enzyme induction, DNA methylation, oncogenes and suppressor genes, diet, and intercellular communication influence susceptibility to spontaneous and induced mouse hepatocarcinogenesis. Comments are offered on the evaluation, interpretation, and relevance of mouse liver tumor responses in the context of cancer bioassays.

Elemental composition of suspended particulate matter and sediments in the coastal environment of Thermaikos Bay, Greece: Delineating the impact of inland waters and wastewaters

Authors: Violintzis, C; Arditsoglou, A; Voutsa, D (2009) Journal of Hazardous Materials 166:1250-1260. HERO ID: 590050

[More] An integrate study on the occurrence of major, minor and trace elements in the coastal environment of Thermaikos Gulf, Northern Aegean Sea, was carried out. The elemental composition of marine sediments and suspended particulate matter from Thermaikos Bay as well as the composition of suspended particles from various inland water (3 rivers and 4 streams) and wastewater (4 types of municipal and industrial origin) end up to the gulf was investigated during the period 2005-2006. The elemental profiles and characteristics of particulate matter from the examined water-types were discussed. The pollution status of marine sediments was evaluated by employing enrichment factors and sediment quality guidelines (TEL/PEL, ERM/ERL). Zn, Cu, Pb, As and Ag were found to have significant contribution from anthropogenic sources. Sites located at the northern part of the bay exhibited higher pollution indices and can be considered of medium-high priority. Principal Component Analysis was employed to find out the factors affecting the composition of the sediments and suspended particulate matter and to elucidate similarities/dissimilarities in the elemental profiles between the different water-types.
