On Aug Dr. S "Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research JCDR is a reputed peer reviewed journal and is constantly involved in publishing high quality research articles related to medicine. Its been a great pleasure to be associated with this esteemed journal as a reviewer and as an author for a couple of years.
The editorial board consists of many dedicated and reputed experts as its members and they are doing an appreciable work in guiding budding researchers. The reviewers provide appropriate suggestions that improve the quality of articles.
I strongly recommend my fraternity to encourage JCDR by contributing their valuable research work in this widely accepted, user friendly journal. I hope my collaboration with JCDR will continue for a long time". I thank JCDR for giving me an opportunity to improve my own skills as an author and a reviewer. It 's a multispecialty journal, publishing high quality articles. It gives a platform to the authors to publish their research work which can be available for everyone across the globe to read.
For those who have problem in writing manuscript or do statistical work, JCDR comes for their rescue. The journal has a monthly publication and the articles are published quite fast. In time compared to other journals.
The on-line first publication is also a great advantage and facility to review one's own articles before going to print.
The response to any query and permission if required, is quite fast; this is quite commendable. I have a very good experience about seeking quick permission for quoting a photograph Fig. I never thought it would be so easy. No hassles.
Reviewing articles is no less a pain staking process and requires in depth perception, knowledge about the topic for review. It requires time and concentration, yet I enjoy doing it. The JCDR website especially for the reviewers is quite user friendly.
My suggestions for improving the journal is, more strict review process, so that only high quality articles are published. I find a a good number of articles in Obst. May be a bimonthly or quarterly publication to begin with.
Only selected articles should find a place in it. An yearly reward for the best article authored can also incentivize the authors.
Though the process of finding the best article will be not be very easy. I do not know how reviewing process can be improved. If an article is being reviewed by two reviewers, then opinion of one can be communicated to the other or the final opinion of the editor can be communicated to the reviewer if requested for.
My best wishes to Dr. Hemant Jain and all the editorial staff of JCDR for their untiring efforts to bring out this journal. I strongly recommend medical fraternity to publish their valuable research work in this esteemed journal, JCDR". Rajendra Kumar Ghritlaharey "I wish to thank Dr. Writing is the representation of language in a textual medium i e; into the words and sentences on paper.
Quality medical manuscript writing in particular, demands not only a high-quality research, but also requires accurate and concise communication of findings and conclusions, with adherence to particular journal guidelines. Important Notice. Abstract Aims and Objectives: The intestinal parasitic infections which are prevalent in the developing countries may even be more important than the bacterial infections. In India, malnutrition, unhygienic conditions, the improper disposal of sewage, the non-availability of potable water supplies in the rural and the urban areas, the indifferent attitude of the population towards personal hygiene, their low socio-economic status and the low literacy rates are responsible for the high rates of intestinal parasitic infections.
Formol ether concentration technique pdf viewer
In view of the above facts, the present study was undertaken to assess the prevalence of the intestinal parasitic infections in the urban and the rural populations which came under a tertiary care teaching hospital.
Material and Methods: A total of stool samples were collected from the rural and the urban populations and each stool sample was examined by: 1. Gross examination 2. Direct microscopic examination by using saline and iodine preparations and by 3. Concentration techniques like simple slat flotation, Zinc sulphate centrifugal floatation, formol-ether concentration and modified formol-ether concentration.
Results: The prevalence of the intestinal parasitic infections was higher in the rural population. A male predominance was noted Children who were between years of age had the highest prevalence of the parasitic infestations. The common parasite which was isolated from both the populations was Entamoeba histolytica, with a prevalence rate of Conclusion: The modified formol-ether sedimentation procedure showed a high sensitivity for the parasitic detection. The supplementation of the routine method with floatation and the sedimentation technique will improve the diagnostic accuracy when this is compared to the routine method alone.
Concentration techniques, Simple salt floatation, Zinc sulphate centrifugal floatation, Formol-ether concentration, Modified formol-ether method. Introduction Parasitic infections are a major public health problem worldwide; particularly in the developing countries 1.
The prevalence of the intestinal parasitic infections varies from one region to another and it also depends largely on the diagnostic methods which are employed and the number of stool examinations which are done.
In India, malnutrition, unhygienic conditions, the improper disposal of sewage and the non-availability of potable water supplies in the rural and the urban areas are responsible for the high rate of intestinal parasitic infections 2. Globally, as many as million people may harbour Entamoeba histolytica and several tens of thousands die each year as a consequence of fulminating colitis or amoebic liver abscesses 3.
The number of people who are affected by Giardia lamblia, whipworm, roundworm and hookworm in the developing world has been estimated to be , , and million respectively 4.
Stool concentration techniques
The conventional methods which are used for the detection of intestinal parasites from stool include the direct wet mount and the iodine mount. The conventional methods lack sensitivity in the detection of parasites in the stool specimens. The detection Original Article M icrobiology Sectionof parasites in the faecal specimens is enhanced by the use of concentration procedures. Various concentration techniques like simple slat floatation, Zinc sulphate centrifugal floatation, formol-ether concentration and modified formol-ether concentration are employed for the diagnosis and the epidemiologic surveillance of parasitic infections in humans.
These techniques increases the detection of the helminthic eggs, larvae and the protozoan cysts. Certain techniques like formol-ether concentration have the advantages of less alteration to the organisms and an increased recovery of the Schistosoma spp.
In view of the increasing polyparasitism in the developing countries, there is a need of sensitive diagnostic tools that are simple to apply and to concurrently detect different intestinal parasite species in the same stool sample.
The objectives of this study were to determine the prevalence of intestinal parasitic infections among the patients who attended a tertiary care teaching hospital and to compare 4 different concentration techniques with the conventional technique in diagnosing parasitic infections.
Material and Methods A total of patients, both symptomatic and asymptomatic, were studied for 2 years from July to July
