Declaration of conflicts of interest (COI, understood mainly as financial) in medical publications is long established. Most journals refer only to the guidelines of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) but not to those of the WAME (World Association of Medical Editors). We surveyed 17 journals and found only one (BJOG), which explicitly mentioned "religious interest" as an example of a possible COI and one other journal included "personal belief" (Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of India) as a COI...

Many reports of health research omit important information needed to assess their methodological robustness and clinical relevance. Without clear and complete reporting, it is not possible to identify flaws or biases, reproduce successful interventions, or use the findings in systematic reviews or meta-analyses. The EQUATOR Network (http://www.equator-network.org/) promotes responsible reporting and the use of reporting guidelines to improve the accuracy, completeness, and transparency of health research. EQUATOR supports researchers by providing online resources and training...

REVIEW
Robert K Hills
Statistics provides an important tool to enable large amounts of data from an experiment to be summarised and conclusions drawn. To be informative statistics need to serve the experimenter appropriately and give clear and understandable answers. It is important that the reader can clearly understand the methodology used, and that that methodology is appropriate to the situation. We present here some issues to be considered when writing for publication in the British Journal of Haematology (BJH).

F E Boulton
The pioneers of transfusion medicine around the turn of the 19th into the 20th centuries struggled with the awkward propensity of shed blood to clot. This article, a companion to a previous one (Boulton, 2013, Submitted for publication), describes in more detail how they recognised a potential for chemical anticoagulants which led to the introduction for a short period of sodium phosphate to aid blood transfusion: these cases preceded the introduction of citrate (Mollison, 2000, British Journal of Haematology, 108, 13-18)...

COMMENT
Eric Solary
UNLABELLED: Tubulin-binding agents are potent cytotoxic drugs that are largely used to treat haematological malignancies and solid tumours. In this issue of British Journal of Pharmacology, doxorubicin was shown to decrease the activity of vincristine when administered simultaneously, unless cell cycle arrest mechanisms were disrupted. This observation emphasizes the need to better explore schedule-dependent antagonist effects in anticancer drug combination therapies. LINKED ARTICLE: This article is a commentary on the research paper by Ehrhardt et al...

REVIEW

BACKGROUND: Cancer-related fatigue is recognised as an important symptom associated with cancer and its treatment. A number of studies have investigated the effects of physical activity in reducing cancer-related fatigue. This is an updated version of the original Cochrane review published in The Cochrane Library (2008, Issue 1). The original review identified some benefits of physical activity on fatigue in cancer both during and after adjuvant treatment. We identified a number of limitations in the evidence, providing clear justification for an updated review...

REVIEW
Andrew P Kurmis
The risk of secondary haematologic complications such as deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism increases significantly when a transient period of hypercoagulability is induced after total hip replacement (THR). A number of drug-based anticoagulant approaches are available to modulate this risk, but the optimal length of therapy for such approaches remains unclear. The literature was reviewed for evidence-based support of the routine use of an extended course (>14 days) of thromboprophylaxis after THR...

Current recommendations vary with regard to the frequency of change of a red blood cell (RBC) administration set. A full review was undertaken to evaluate the recommendations for how often a RBC administration set should be changed while a patient is being transfused. Comprehensive searches of Medline, Embase, Cinahl, the Cochrane Library, handsearching of transfusion journals, guidelines and websites and contact with administration set manufacturers identified 32 relevant papers: 11 clinical updates; 11 guidelines; 5 manufacturer data sheets; 3 standards; 1 Department of Health report and 1 expert opinion...

A best evidence topic in cardiac surgery was written according to a structured protocol. The question addressed was whether warfarin should be routinely prescribed for the first three months after a bioprosthetic valve replacement either for the aortic or mitral position. Altogether 620 papers were identified using the below-mentioned search. In addition, all major international guidelines were included. Fifteen papers presented the best evidence to answer the clinical question. The author, journal, date and country of publication, patient group, relevant outcomes and weaknesses were tabulated...

A patient with pneumonia was treated with Tazocin (piperacillin/tazobactam). However, the expected haemoglobin (Hb) increment after transfusion was not achieved. Plasma bilirubin and lactate dehydrogenase were raised. The direct antiglobulin test (DAT) was positive (4+) for immunoglobulin G (IgG) only, but no RBC antibodies were demonstrable in the plasma or an eluate from the patient's RBCs. Drug-induced haemolysis was suspected. After discontinuing Tazocin administration, Hb and bilirubin levels returned to expected values...

The statement printed below was agreed at a consensus conference on platelet transfusion organised by the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh and held in Edinburgh in November 1997. We publish this statement at the request of the organising committee to bring it to the attention of physicians who do not read the haematological literature. The statement will also appear in the British Journal of Haematology in 1998 with the scientific evidence upon which it is based.

The objective was to determine whether or not a laboratory based computer diagnostic program could aid the clinician in solving problems, outside his or her field of expertise, by expertly interpreting ¿Emergency Room' haematological and biochemical data and providing a list of possible diagnoses. The program, which uses Fuzzy Sets and pattern recognition as its Inference Mechanism coupled with a data base comprised of haematological and biochemical responses to disease collected over a period of 10 years in a teaching hospital, analysed data published in two leading journals--the 'Clinical Problem-Solving' section of the New England Journal of Medicine and the 'Lesson of the Week' feature of the British Medical Journal...

Protein crosslinkages are apparent at 215 000-250 000 daltons in electrophoregrams of membranes from hydrogen peroxide treated erythrocytes (British Journal of Haematology, 48, 435, 1981). Hydrogen peroxide is also capable of inducing crosslinkages of identical molecular weights in stage I and II (red) ghosts and in a mixture of purified spectrin and haemoglobin, but not in white ghosts or in either spectrin or haemoglobin alone. Autoradiographic studies using 14C-methaemoglobin and 32P-spectrin confirm the involvement of spectrin and haemoglobin in this reaction...
