Open Access Biomedical Publisher Using Post Publication Peer Review
This paper correctly defines health as a human right and a relevant factor to people around the globe. Additionally, the authors successfully points the lack of interest of pharmaceutical manufactures to develop medicines or vaccines to low income populations in developing regions of the world because they are not seen as profitable to invest. They also describe the presence of neglected diseases and poor sustainable economic and social development of countries as their main concern.
Because Webmed Central publishes a large variety of subjects in the biomedical area, it would be interesting to enlist the main neglected tropical diseases in order to clarify and improve this paper. (WHO is currently focusing on 17 neglected tropical diseases-December, 2010).
At the end of the text, the authors mentioned briefly the four main conditions to bridge the translational research gap between research finding and health product development. We suggest that they should improve and emphasize each one of these topics with more details.
