Biologic markers of the urothelial cell cancer of the bladder
Jakub Dobruch, Theo M. de Reijke, Andrzej Borówka
Cancer of the urinary bladder (BCa) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality all over the world. Clinical and pathological features have limited capacity to detect bladder cancer patients at high risk of recurrence and mortality. Several tissue and urine markers were introduced to improve the prediction of oncological end points.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Minimal-invasive treatment of complicated ureteroceles in adults avoiding vesicoureteric reflux
Joerg Seibold, Saladin H. Alloussi, David Schilling, Daniela Colleselli, Arnulf Stenzl, Christian Schwentner
Ureteroceles are a not rare finding in adults. In contrast to pediatric ureteroceles, the therapy modalities in adults are different and recommendations are scarce.

Doxazosin induces apoptosis in PTEN-positive androgen- independent PC cells via inhibition of Akt activation
Hanna Romanska, Maciej Salagierski, Rachel Bruton, Paul Abel, Marek Sosnowski, El-Nasir Lalani
Doxazosin, a selective alfa1-adrenoreceptor antagonist widely used in the management of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), has been shown to induce apoptosis in androgen-independent (AI) and PTEN-negative prostate cancer (PC) cells. The objective of this study was to assess the effects of doxazosin on the growth of PC cells with a functional PTEN/PI3K/Akt pathway in relation to cell androgen sensitivity and Bcl-2 expression.

Wunderlich syndrome - good imaging avoids bad surgery: a case report and short review.
Svetoslav Dyakov, Petar Chankov, Alexander Hinev
Spontaneous renal hemorrhage, known as Wunderlich syndrome, is a rare clinical condition. The most common cause is tumor – benign or malignant. Other causes are: rupture of a renal cyst, vasculitis, hydronephrosis, preeclampsia, and kidney infections. Although rare, this syndrome may cause life-threatening hemorrhagic shock – it requires prompt diagnosis and treatment. Radiologic imaging plays an essential role in the diagnosis, although often misleading and insecure about the underlying entity

A Rare Cause Of Hematuria In Children: Arteriovenous Hemangioma Of The Bladder
Yusuf Kibar, Mete Kilciler, Hasan Cem Irkilata, Fikret Erdemir, Murat Zor, Onder Onguru, Murat Dayanc
Bladder hemangiomas are exceedingly rare benign tumors of the urinary bladder that accounts for 0.6 % of bladder tumors. Although this tumor can occur at any age, hemangioma in childhood is relatively rare. Hemangiomas are classified as cavernous, capillary or arteriovenous. Most hemangiomas of the bladder are of the cavernous type. In the literature arterivenous hemangiomas have been described only in adults. We report a case of arteriovenous hemangioma of the urinary bladder in an 1-year-old young boy

Scientific integrity also concerns editors and publishers

Recently, there have been many dishonest propositions from scientific publishing houses and publishers. Authors receive offers to publish articles in journals of questionable reputability and often an unfairly created image which portrays a resemblance of a journal with high standards possessing an Impact Factor, generated by Clarivate Analytics (previously Thomson Reuters).

Many trademarks imitating the "original" Impact Factor have appeared. These trademarks entice authors to publish articles in journals which do not appear in the Science Citation Index Expanded database, managed by Clarivate Analytics. These journals of course have their own unique impact factors, but they are not indexed by Clarivate Analytics. Authors publish their articles in these journals only to later find out that they will not be indexed in the Science Citation Index Expanded database. Often, these articles cannot be then withdrawn because after an article is assigned a DOI number, it cannot be published in another journal as this would be considered plagiarism. Subsequently, these journals may demand up to a few thousand dollars from authors in order to withdraw their articles.

Why am I writing about this? I am writing about this because I think that editors and publishers must be honest and present credible offers to authors. In my opinion, impact factors that are not the result of parameters calculated by Clarivate Analytics should not be used, even if they are trademarks. In scientific research, the concept of an "Impact Factor" has existed for too long for it to be used by other institutions, even if it is calculated fairly and called an "unofficial impact factor". This is simply a case of scientific integrity.

The SCOPUS database has come up with a very good solution to this problem by naming their impact factor "CiteScore". This is a fair approach to authors by publishers.

As editors and publishers, we must also have an honest approach to scientific research.

Dear authors, please look out for journals which advertise various new impact factors. Before you submit your articles to a journal, make sure to check first in which database it is indexed.


With kind regards,
Tomasz Drewa

Corrigendum
The Editorial Office would like to inform all interested parties that in Central European Journal of Urology an article entitled "Efficacy of holmium laser urethrotomy and intralesional injection of Santosh PGI tetra-inject (Triamcinolone, Mitomycin C, Hyaluronidase and N-acetyl cysteine) on the outcome of urethral strictures" [Kumar S, Kishore L, Sharma AP, Garg N, Singh SK. Cent European J Urol. 2015; 68: 462-465] was published which is very similar to the article entitled "Efficacy of Optical Internal Urethrotomy and Intralesional Injection of Vatsala-Santosh PGI Tri-Inject (Triamcinolone, Mitomycin C, and Hyaluronidase) in the Treatment of Anterior Urethral Stricture" published in Advances in Urology [Kumar S, Garg N, Singh SK, Mandal AK. Adv Urol. 2014; 2014: 192710. doi: 10.1155/2014/192710. Epub 2014 Oct 1].

The authors of these articles did not inform the CEJU Editorial Office about the prior publication of an article with a similar subject matter nor did they refer to it in their References section.

The Editorial Office regrets the existing situation.
