Peng Yizhi, Chen Jing, Yuan Zhiqiang, Li Xiaolu, Luo Gaoxing, Wu Jun, on behalf of Editorial Board of Guidelines for the Treatment of Burn Infection, Chinese Medical Association
Critical Care , 2013, DOI: 10.1186/cc11912
Abstract: Preliminary diagnosis of post-burn sepsis can be made if six out of the first 11 criteria below are met. This preliminary diagnosis can be confirmed if any one aspect described in the last criterion is met.The diagnostic criteria are: (1) mental excitement, hallucinations, disorientation or depression; (2) abdominal distension, diminished bowel sound; (3) rapidly deteriorated burn wounds, exhibited as wet, dark and/or deepened wounds with necrotic spots, and so forth; (4) core temperature >39.0°C or <36.5°C; (5) increased heart rate - adults >130 times/minute, children of all ages >2 standard deviations of normal value; (6) increased respiratory rate - adults >28 times/minute (without mechanical ventilation), children of all ages >2 standard deviations of normal value; (7) thrombocytopenia - adults <50 × 109/l, children of all ages <2 standard deviations of normal value; (8) peripheral white blood cell count - adults >15 × 109/l or <5 × 109/l, in which neutrophil percentage >80% or immature granulocytes >10%, children of all ages >2 or <2 standard deviations of normal value; (9) blood procalcitonin >0.5 μg/l; (10) blood sodium levels >155 mmol/l; (11) blood glucose >14 mmol/l (no history of diabetes); and (12) positive blood culture or positive response to antibiotic therapy.Recommended guidelines include infectious source control, rational use of antibiotics, continuous blood purification, application of glucocorticoids, immunomodulation, symptomatic and supportive treatment, and prevention of hospital-acquired infection.The authors declare that they have no competing interests.This work was supported by the Specific Project of Health, Ministry of Health of China (No. 201202002), by a grant from the CPLA Scientific Research Fund (No. BWS11J039), and by the Key Project on Advanced Clinical Technology for Military Hospital (No. 2010gxjs068).
Why a special issue of JIDC on enteric fever?
John Wain, on behalf of the editorial board of JIDC
Journal of Infection in Developing Countries , 2008,
Abstract: The Journal of Infection in Developing Countries (JIDC) was started as a vehicle to promote the work of developing country scientists and to enable research in the less affluent regions of the world. This issue of JIDC is focused on enteric fever, a disease seen predominantly in developing countries. The idea came out of discussions through the open forum, the Salmonella network, and at editorial meetings. The hope is that we have put together a collection of state-of-the–art reviews on relevant topics; that is, topics that are relevant to basic research and public health, written by scientists currently working at the top of their field. This collection is complemented by regional reviews which give a view from endemic regions of the world and, particularly for sub-Saharan Africa and China, provide data on the importance of enteric fever which was previously unavailable in the West. Finally, we have also received many original research articles which provide the most recent data on many aspects of enteric fever.Our journal, JIDC, is growing and there is a genuine commitment to address our aim of “bridging the gap between developed and developing country scientists.” I have been overwhelmed by the enthusiastic response from both developing and developed country scientists for this issue and would like to thank all of those who submitted manuscripts and acted as reviewers and associate editors. I apologize to those authors whose papers did not make the deadline for this issue, but we will try to publish the manuscripts on enteric fever which are still being processed as soon as possible. Please continue to submit articles, on any relevant topic, but also on enteric fever, as we are hoping to collate all of the articles in this special issue of JIDC on enteric fever into a single publication for release at the international typhoid meeting in Kenya in January.

Journal News: Osmar Pinto Jr. et al.’s Research Work, Published in American Journal of Climate Change, Has Been Reported by BBC News  [PDF]
AJCC Editorial Board
American Journal of Climate Change (AJCC) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ajcc.2014.32011

The city of Manaus (Brazil) is located in the central part of the largest tropical forest in the world, the Amazon rainforest, and has a population of approximately 2 million inhabitants. Osmar Pinto Jr., Iara Regina Cardoso de Almeida Pinto, and Osmar P. Neto showed that the lightning activity in Manaus is larger than that in the regions around the city and it has been increasing in the last four decades with the increasing of the urban area of the city. These results suggest that these spatial and time variations are related to the Urban Heat Island effect, since it is believed that the Urban Heat Island effect influences thunderstorm formation and evolution and, in consequence, the lightning activity. Therefore, they suggest that the replacement of the forest by urban areas tends to increase the lightning activity in the Amazon region. These results were published in American Journal of Climate Change in December 2013 [1].

In March 14, 2014, BBC News reported Osmar Pinto Jr. et al.’s results. The title of news report is “Enlightened forest”, in detail, please find at
