Open Access Biomedical Publisher Using Post Publication Peer Review
This review paper claims that noninvasive breath analysis could be used in both environmental exposure assessment and clinical diagnosis and that may provide a promising alternative strategy to invasive and expensive investigations.
Yes, the claims were novel.
To some extent. The authors reviewed only 28 papers in that field, and have missed many highly cited articles published before the current publication.
The authors have to include other important papers and rewrite this paper.
It will be a nice piece of paper if the authors redo in-depth review.
This paper can be presented in some mini seminar, not as an exemplary lecture.
It has been long since they submitted the paper. I may suggest them to rewrite the paper in the present context.
Occupational and environmental medicine related research is my basic working area.
The author's aim is to describe the potential applications of human breath analysis.
Yes- it would be a good seminar in a medical school.
The author atates that exhaled breath analysis is becoming one of the desirable strategies for environmental exposure assessment. it can also be used for clinical diagnosis because it is rapid, noninvasive and relatively inexpensive. The author states that disadvantages of breath testing include the multitude of possible confounders and the lack of standardization of procedures for sampling, analysis and background correction.
