Artículo bueno.svg Pass.. By Earwig's Copyvio Detector, the relevant matches came from sites that presumably have copied their texts from the corresponding Wikipedia page (Wikipedia:Leptospirosis). This page is appropriately attributed in the author field of this submission. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 12:28, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

External comment[edit source]

I have noticed that the Wikipedia article, hence the manuscript, contains a number typographical mistakes and outdated information. I would suggest the author(s) to look into these issues (the Wikipedia article has been edited for example):

  • So many stray capitalisation, particularly scientific terminologies.
  • Redundant citation of the same reference in flowing sentences; e.g. Ref 1 is four times in a row in the abstract, where the last one is enough.
  • Leptospira is now a lot more that "22 species", see Vincent at al., 2019 (DOI 10.1371/journal.pntd.0007270).
  • Genetics may also be updated such as with Nieves at al., 2019 (DOI 10.1128/MRA.00893-19).
  • Cellular invasion is also a bit outdated, at least consider cell adhesion mechanism like Devaux at al., 2019 (DOI 10.3389/fmicb.2019.02598)

  • Stray capitalisation issues addressed.
  • Redundant citations removed.
  • Added Caimi review 2020 which stated that Leptospira bacteria has 66 species.
  • Added Caimi review 2020 and several new methods of analysis are presented under "Diagnosis"-"Others" section.
  • Added the Devaux et al cellular invasion mechanism.

Thank your for your valuable comment. Any other comments are welcomed.Cerevisae (discusscontribs) 23:53, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Peer review 1[edit source]

Review by Anonymous , Aravind Eye Hospital | MS (Ophthal), FICO, FAEH, MRes
This review was submitted on , and refers to this previous version of the article

Well written and referenced, however a separate section on eye manifestations could be included. The authors could use peer reviewed journals to include the same as extensive studies have already been done on Leptospiral uveitis.

Included the journal (Verma A, Stevenson B (7 September 2012). "Leptospiral Uveitis – There Is More to It Than Meets the Eye!". Zoonoses and Public Health 59 (s2): 132–141. doi:10.1111/j.1863-2378.2011.01445.x. PMID 22958257. ) under "Prognosis" - "eye complications" section and a sentence in the "Other animals" section that horses are more prone to develop eye uveitis.
