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.

[Less] In a four-year period three isolated cases of hepatitis were observed within a period of 2 months in . . . [More] In a four-year period three isolated cases of hepatitis were observed within a period of 2 months in a haemodialysis unit. The cases occurred in 3 patients during testing of new haemodialysis equipment. Liver biopsy in 2 patients showed non-specific hepatitis and changes as in “viral hepatitis” respectively. From the tested blood tubings, manufactured from polyvinylchloride (P.V.C.), diaethylphthalate was washed out in an amount of 10–20 mg per litre aqueous perfusate. From the tubings normally used in the department this compound was not released on perfusion, and the symptoms disappeared rapidly when treatment with the use of these tubings was resumed.
