Plagiarism check[edit]

WMF copyvio tool using TurnItIn. There was one duplicate sentence that was detected and I recommend rephrasing or explicitly attributing as a quote.

Contacting the authors[edit]

Although Ozzie would be the corresponding author, I would insist on caring to leave a message on the talk pages of the 2 other editors who have made more than 20 edits to the page. The objective of this message is to invite the contributors to collaboratively submit the article for review through Wiki.J.Med, and if possible, to help in further betterment of the article in accordance to the suggestions of the reviewers. Wikipedia articles are collaboratively authored. So, it is very important to make the authors aware of such a process that the article is currently undergoing.

First peer review[edit]

Review by Premashis Kar   Departments of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Maulana Azad Medical College, University of Delhi
This review was submitted on 23-11-18, and refers to this previous version of the article

The paper is well written, it is comprehensive with referrence to the epidemiology, clinical features, diagnosis, cause of the disease, treatment and preventive approaches. The context of the paper which describes the animal reservior, historical aspects and the recent outbreaks should be reduced to few lines. The modified paper should be considered for publication.

Response
This is a valuable review and have gone about the recommended changes:

  • 'Animal reservoir' have reduced to more essential aspect of animal reservoir for Hepatitis E
  • 'History' have condensed to most essential 'historical' aspects of Hepatitis E
  • 'Recent outbreaks' have slightly reduced the 'outbreak' section, do not agree with a further trim, as the Kitgum District of northern Uganda should remain due to the importance of outbreak as well as, more recent outbreaks of Hepatitis E

I believe I have addressed the specific comments, I would like to thank you for your valuable time and recommendations --Ozzie10aaaa (discusscontribs) 20:53, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

Reviewer comments submitted as PDF


Response
This is a valuable review and have gone about some of the recommended changes:

1.While this is helpful:

the World Health Organization officially indicates 5 types per:

  • "WHO | What is hepatitis?". WHO. Retrieved 18 December 2018.
  • "WHO | Types of hepatitis". WHO. Retrieved 18 December 2018.


2. Has been answered as follows:

  • Acute pancreatitis was already in the text
  • Haematological manifestations was already in the text in the form of thrombocytopenia, and cryoglobulinemia
  • Autoimmune phenomena was already in text in the form of Glomerulonephritis
  • PNS neurological syndromes was already in text in the form of Guillain-Barré syndrome
  • have added - CNS neurological syndromes as suggested

3.per #3 on PDF, only has text without a clear suggestion for the classification subsection(and distribution), therefore only added first sentence & reference indicated on pdf..("Hepatitis E". www.who.int. Retrieved 8 January 2019. ... WHO indicates 4 genotypes)

4.Done as suggested

5./6. Done, however the article suggested as reference indicates 'Conflict of interest statement'

  • Q.D. and A.P. have filed a patent application on the use of the HEV transcomplementation system and ORF3’s ion channel function for anti-HEV drug screening.

7.Done as suggested


I believe I have addressed the specific comments,however if #3 needs to be further reviewed/responded I would be more than happy to, I would like to thank you for your valuable time and recommendations--Ozzie10aaaa (discusscontribs) 15:58, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Third peer review[edit]

Review by Esther Aspinall   Health Protection Scotland
This review was submitted on 2019-07-01, and refers to this previous version of the article

Review of epidemiology section:

Line 1: Would possibly be more accurate to use the wording ‘resulted in 57,000 deaths during 2010’

Line 2: Suggested wording: ‘pregnant women are particularly at risk of complications due to HEV infection’. The high mortality rate is among women in low income settings – in some high income settings it is unclear if mortality rate among pregnant women is any different than among non-pregnant women https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2575020/ I would not use the term lethal in relation to an infectious disease: suggest using term ‘fatal’

Line 4: Reference 52 refers to HEV in pregnancy – another reference is needed for the sentence regarding Central Asia and Central America

Line 5: The reference to England & Wales is now significantly out of date (2005) – data up to 2015 is available at https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/500321/hpr0616_zoos.pdf This is also a well-documented European trend, see: https://ecdc.europa.eu/sites/portal/files/documents/HEV_Surveillance-report-2005-2015.pdf https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28681720

Line 5: largest ‘known’ outbreak would be more accurate Line 9: reference 57: page not found General comment: WHO now use the term low/middle/high income settings rather than ‘developed’/’developing’ countries


Response
This is a valuable review and have gone about the recommended changes:

1.Done as suggested

2.Done as suggested

3.With regards to-


4.Added- "Common animal associated infections quarterly report (England and Wales) – fourth quarter 2015". assets.publishing.service.gov.uk 10 (6). 12 February, 2016. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/500321/hpr0616_zoos.pdf. Retrieved 8 January 2019. 

5.Have addressed both points as follows-

  • Done as suggested
  • and Dead link fixed/replaced


I believe I have addressed the specific comments,however if there is anything further that needs to be reviewed/responded I would be more than happy to, I would like to thank you for your valuable time and recommendations--Ozzie10aaaa (discusscontribs) 04:51, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

13.Done as suggested

14.a.Done as suggested, with additional references

Review by Sven Pischke  
The current version of the paper is not completely right. they state there are 4 genotypes but this is not true (this classification has changed approximately 2 years ago). the present calssification divides HEV genotypes into GT 1-4 and 5, 6, 7, 8 (wild boar, wild boar, camels, camels).

The remaining changes are right.

Response
Have added per the following reference:

Editorial comments[edit]

Comments by Thomas Shafee
These comments were submitted on 29 January 2019, and refer to this previous version of the article

Comments from the editorial board discussion:

  • Could the author please add their ORCID (registration page if they do not already have one).
  • Some of the key references are dated e.g. over 10 years old. Could the author please check if more recent alternatives are available for the older sources.
    • E.g. The estimates for newly infected persons are from 2013, although more recent data is available [4] (note, hepatitis estimation process changed).

Response
Dr. Shafee

Should there be any further references, that are dated and have a new version which I might have missed, I would therefore unhesitantly add, thank you--Ozzie10aaaa (discusscontribs) 12:15, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

Hello Ozzie

In further editorial board discussions, it was pointed out that the following section is in need of a more recent reference as well:

  • "The hepatitis E virus causes around 20 million infections a year. These result in around three million acute illnesses and resulted in 57,000 deaths during 2010.[1]

Best regards,

Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 18:53, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

Response
Dr. Häggström

Upon reviewing the text a WHO reference that had been used for a different section can readily be used in this case-

Should there be any further references, that are dated and have a newer version which I might have missed, I would therefore unhesitantly add, thank you--Ozzie10aaaa (discusscontribs) 21:09, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

Hello Ozzie

Thank you. Actually, we also noted reference 3 and 4 were retrieved 2016, but these pages have since been updated 2018. Could you check whether the information is still correct, and if so, update the retrieval date?
