In all full cases, both the chances ratios and P values show a stronger association with proteinase 3 ANCA than with granulomatosis with polyangiitis. This is particularly very clear for PRTN3, which was conclusively connected with proteinase 3 ANCA status whereas it had not been with total ANCA-connected vasculitis or granulomatosis with polyangiitis . This SNP was not connected with proteinase 3 ANCA convincingly, granulomatosis with polyangiitis, or microscopic polyangiitis in this cohort.65; P=2. The primary association of all these genetic variants thus were with ANCA specificity as opposed to the clinically defined syndromes.According to a statement published on COPE’s site in January 2015, these attempts to hijack the scholarly review system were evidently orchestrated by organizations that first helped authors compose or improve their scientific articles and then offered them favorable peer evaluations.4 BioMed Central conducted a thorough investigation of all their recently published content and identified 43 which were published on the basis of reviews from fabricated reviewers. All these articles had been retracted in March 2015. The kind of peer-review fraud committed by Moon, Chen, and third-party agencies could work when journals allow or encourage authors to suggest reviewers for his or her own submissions.
