A CASE OF PLAGIARISM (Case No. 05012013)

Professor John J. Maurer from The University of Georgia 244, 5th Avenue, No. 2218 NY 10001, New York USA pointed out a plagiarism in a paper published in International Journal of Poultry Science Volume 8 Number 2, 156-160, 2009.

On the receipt of Professor John J. Maurer’s letter, the case forwarded to the Ethics Committee of the Science Alert. As per the report of the Ethics Committee, article entitled "Allelotyping PCR for Detection and Screening of Salmonella enterica Serovar Enteritidis and Typhimurium" authored by S. Essam Soliman, C. Kilpatrick, S. Mohamed Ahmed, M. Eman Abouelhassan, R. Nimmanapelli and P.G. Reddy Department of Pathobiology, CVMNAH, Tuskegee University, USA published in International Journal of Poultry Science Volume 8 Number 2, 156-160, 2009, contains substantial sections of text that have been taken verbatim from earlier publication without clear and unambiguous attribution.

Science Alert considers misappropriation of intellectual property and duplication of text from other authors or publications without clear and unambiguous attribution totally unacceptable.

Plagiarism is a violation of copyright and a serious breach of scientific ethics. The Editors and Publisher have agreed to officially retract this article.

Science Alert is highly thankful to Professor John J. Maurer The University of Georgia 244, 5th Avenue, No. 2218 NY 10001, New York USA, for pointing out this plagiarism.

  Six experiments were conducted during which a total of 12 congenic lines homozygous for various B-complex alleles, were challenged by intraperitoneal injection with either of two isolates of Salmonella enteritidis. Because these B alleles were expressed on a common genetic background and mortality differences among lines were statistically significant in three of the six trials and morbidity (body weight) differences were significant in another trial; it is suggested that B-complex alleles affect the degree of immunity to these isolates. When all lines and trials were compared, line 342 (BC/BC) emerged as particularly resistant, whereas lines 253 (B18/B18) and 254 (B15/B15) were more susceptible. The remainders of the lines were of neutral (intermediate) susceptibility. Sex did not appear to influence the results of the challenge, but more resistance was observed with an increase in the age at inoculation. Although the mechanism that determined this resistance is unknown it was present as early as 3 d of age and it is suggested that complement proteins, which have a known role in protection from bacterial infections and are encoded by genes located within the B-complex, or acute phase proteins, may account for these observations.
