  3. Can Pulmonary Surfactant Proteins Be Reliable Indicators of Covid-19-Associated Pulmonary Injury?Yuliya Fedorchenko & Olena Zimba - 2022 - Central Asian Journal of Medical Hypotheses and Ethics 3 (2):91-97.
    The COVID-19 pandemic is still raging all over the world. New variants of the coronavirus emerge and infect recovered from previous infections, vaccinated, and unvaccinated subjects. One aspect remains unchanged that is the lungs are the main targets of the pandemic coronavirus. This challenging situation requires the search for reliable predictive markers of severe and complicated course of the disease. Serum surfactant proteins are known to correlate with pulmonary injury severity in numerous diseases. Measurement of such protein levels may help (...)

  4. Interstitial Cystitis as a Plausible Cause of Overactive Bladder in Systemic Sclerosis: A Hypothesis.Neslihan Gokcen - 2022 - Central Asian Journal of Medical Hypotheses and Ethics 3 (2):98-102.
    Patients with chronic inflammatory disease of the bladder, known as interstitial cystitis, tend to have autoimmune diseases, such as Sjogren’s syndrome, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis and, rarely, systemic sclerosis. SLE patients with IC are prone to present with overactive bladder symptoms. Lower urinary tract involvement is less usual in SSc but OAB symptoms are quite common among SSc patients with lower urinary tract involvement. The underlying mechanisms of lower urinary tract involvement, including OAB, in SSc could be as follows: (...)

  5. Youtube as a Source of Information About Gonorrhea.Erhan Kaya, Yavuzalp Solak & Burhan Fatih Koçyiğit - 2022 - Central Asian Journal of Medical Hypotheses and Ethics 3 (2):103-110.
    Introduction: The purpose of this study was to systematically evaluate the quality of videos on YouTube related to gonorrhea. Methods: Using the search term “gonorrhea”, the first 200 relevant videos on YouTube were saved to a file. All video parameters, including the number of views, likes, dislikes and comments were recorded. The Global Quality Scale was used to evaluate the quality of the videos. Results: After exclusions, 144 videos were selected and evaluated by two independent observers. The median duration of (...)

  6. Analysis of Retracted Publications From Kazakhstan.Burhan Fatih Koçyiğit & Ahmet Akyol - 2022 - Central Asian Journal of Medical Hypotheses and Ethics 3 (2):111-118.
    Introduction: Retraction is a mechanism to prevent the dissemination of erroneous, misleading, or biased data and information. Various factors can cause retraction. In this article, we focused on Kazakhstan data and aimed to present an analysis of retracted publications from Kazakhstan. Methods: Data for this descriptive cross-sectional article were obtained from the 'Retraction Watch’ database without time restriction. Among the country selections, 'Kazakhstan,' 'Tajikistan,' 'Uzbekistan,' 'Kyrgyzstan,' and 'Turkmenistan' were chosen, and the number of retracted articles was recorded. For detailed analysis, (...)

  8. Peering, Viewing and Reviewing: What Makes a Peer Review Good. Mohini & Sakir Ahmed - 2022 - Central Asian Journal of Medical Hypotheses and Ethics 3 (2):119-124.
    Peer review is an integral part of an ethical scientific publication process. Though not perfect, it has not been replaceable in the last couple of centuries since the advent of scientific journals. Recent innovations include online anonymized credits for peer review that can be used to augment an academician’s resume. Submissions and retraction are ever growing, increasing the demands from peer reviewers. The rewards may not seem commensurate but any person of science should contribute to peer review as a guardian (...)

  9. Influence of Citation Practices on Academic Assessment.Horacio Rivera - 2022 - Central Asian Journal of Medical Hypotheses and Ethics 3 (2):125-129.
    In writing scientific papers, proper citation and referencing are crucial and thereby should be taught to graduate students and novice researchers as tools for counteracting the pervasive errors in citing, quoting, and referencing. Although the relevance of citation counts and derived indicators such as the h-index in assessing research performance is out of question, this emphasis has resulted in an “impact or perish” culture featuring post-production misrepresentation and related misbehaviors. Herein, I appraise the use of citations in academic assessment, citations (...)

  11. Seasonal Variations and Behçet’s Disease Activity.Döndü Üsküdar Cansu & Cengiz Korkmaz - 2022 - Central Asian Journal of Medical Hypotheses and Ethics 3 (1):21-26.
    Behçet’s disease is a systemic vasculitis with mucocutaneous manifestations such as recurrent oral ulcers and genital ulcers in addition to major organ involvements including the vascular and central nervous systems. Many studies have found that the prevalence of clinical symptoms of BD varies by geographical region. The course of BD is characterized by relapses and remissions. Infectious agents and altered microbiomes have been blamed for exacerbations of the disease. Stress, physical exhaustion, mechanical oral trauma, and hormonal effects have been specifically (...)

  12. Smoking and Buerger’s Disease: From Hypotheses to Evidence Synthesis.Bahare Fazeli & Mitra Masoudian - 2022 - Central Asian Journal of Medical Hypotheses and Ethics 3 (1):27-37.
    Early after the definition of thromboangiitis obliterans, it was noticed that TAO patients are almost always tobacco smokers. Later on, the relationship between continued smoking and TAO prognosis was documented. Consequently, smoking came to be considered as the main cause of TAO. However, it is still unknown why, amongst millions of smokers, only a small number develop TAO. It also remains unknown why, of the TAO patients who continue smoking, only half of them show aggravation and undergo amputations. The aims (...)

  13. Cytokines as Potential Markers of Covid-19 Severity and Outcomes.Yuliya Fedorchenko & Olena Zimba - 2022 - Central Asian Journal of Medical Hypotheses and Ethics 3 (1):10-20.
    The continual propagation of SARS-CoV-2 has changed health care systems globally. Ranging degrees of clinical severity in COVID-19 patients have been noted in numerous literature sources. Cytokines play a crucial role in the development of key immunological processes in COVID-19. SARS-CoV-2 causes imbalance of the immune system and might culminate in cytokine storm and multiple organ involvement. The prevailing role of some special cytokines might serve as indicators of disease severity. Further stratification of patients in the context of specific cytokines (...)

    A Classification System for Post-Acute Sequelae of Sars Cov-2 Infection.Leonard A. Jason & Mohammed F. Islam - 2022 - Central Asian Journal of Medical Hypotheses and Ethics 3 (1):38-51.
    This study aimed to contribute to the development of a research case definition for post-acute sequelae of SARS CoV-2 infection using a PASC data set and experiences from case definitions developed for myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome. Our database included patients with PASC who provided self-report symptomology during the onset of infection and the time of survey completion. We found that we could distinguish between those with mild, moderate, and severe PASC. Regarding the proportion meeting an ME/CFS case definition, we found (...)

    Background: Plagiarism, in simple words meaning theft of ideas or text, is a grave scientific misconduct that is talked about frequently, however is notable in its conspicuous absence from the formal educational curriculum. Students and young researchers tend to engage in this malpractice, intentionally or unintentionally, due to various reasons. Aim: In this review, we aim to discuss a clear concept about plagiarism from its origin to its consequences, with special considerations about its status in the COVID-19 pandemic. This lucid (...)

  17. Hospital-Media Relationship and Patients’ Privacy: Codifying the Ethical Guideline.Pooneh Salari, Mahshad Noroozi & Alireza Parsapour - 2022 - Central Asian Journal of Medical Hypotheses and Ethics 3 (1):63-74.
    The hospital-media relationship could be mutually beneficial. Appealing to maximum readers and surviving in business are priorities in journalism. Without adherence to an ethical framework and main ethical principles including privacy and confidentiality, some detrimental impacts may occur. Thus, we aimed at codifying an ethical guideline for hospital-media relationship in Iran to maintain a proper and ethical relationship by emphasizing on patients’ privacy and confidentiality. The study was performed using the qualitative approach in two phases. The current policies and relevant (...)
