Drug therapy and other factors associated with the development of acute kidney injury in critically ill patients: a cross-sectional study
Minjun Chen –– The study will help the readers better understand the risk factors associated with acute kidney injury
A meta-analysis reveals the environmental and host factors shaping the structure and function of the shrimp microbiota
Konstantinos Kormas –– A very good effort on putting together and analysing shrimp gut microbiota.
The effects of fermentation products of prebiotic fibres on gut barrier and immune functions in vitro
Maria Cristina Albertini –– I believe that prebiotics may have an important influence of immune response. More information are needed on intestinal barrier functions and this paper can be of support.
Occurrence of virulent multidrug-resistant Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium in the pigs, farmers and farm environments in Malaysia
Carlos Conte-Junior –– This paper is very relevant in food microbiology.
Patterns in evolutionary origins of heme, chlorophyll a and isopentenyl diphosphate biosynthetic pathways suggest non-photosynthetic periods prior to plastid replacements in dinoflagellates
Daniel Lahr –– This article attempts to retrace the complex history of re-construction of the photosynthetic pathway in organisms that went through serial endosymbiosis. It is likely to be relevant to biologists working on evolution, endosymbiosis and lateral gene transfer, thus making it a broadly interesting paper.
Perceived user preferences and usability evaluation of mainstream wearable devices for health monitoring
Jie Liu –– Health care
Taxonomic annotation errors incorrectly assign the family Pseudoalteromonadaceae to the order Vibrionales in Greengenes: implications for microbial community assessments
Siouxsie Wiles –– An important article that reminds us to be aware of the assumptions we make around databases and other resources we rely on.
The impact of the Wenchuan earthquake on early puberty: a natural experiment
Charlie Zhang –– Large and geographically extensive sample, sound research design and significant results confirming the harmful effects of Wenchuan earthquake on early puberty.
Transcriptomic evidence for involvement of reactive oxygen species in Rhizoctonia solani AG1 IA sclerotia maturation
Siouxsie Wiles –– Sounds like a really interesting study to those working on plant fungal pathogens.
Epidemiology of Haemophilus parasuis isolates from pigs in China using serotyping, antimicrobial susceptibility, biofilm formation and ERIC-PCR genotyping
Sheng Chen –– Haemophilus parasuis is a very important pathogen in animals. More studies should be encouraged in this field.
