1.  Are surveillance response systems enough to effectively combat and contain the Ebola outbreak? 
The epidemic of the Ebola virus infection in West Africa in 2014 has become a worldwide concern. Due to the nature of the disease, which has an extremely high mortality potential, this outbreak has received much attention from researchers and public health workers. An article entitled "Need of surveillance response systems to combat Ebola outbreaks and other emerging infectious diseases in African countries," published in the journal Infectious Diseases of Poverty in August 2014, concluded that a good surveillance system to monitor disease transmission dynamics is essential and needs to be implemented to combat the outbreak. Issues regarding the limitation of the passive surveillance system have been raised by Professor Viroj Wiwanitkit, who emphasizes the need for an active disease detection system such as mass screening in this letter to editor. The different function between passive and active surveillance system in combating the disease outbreak has been agreed upon by Ernest Tambo et al. There have also been discussions between Wiwanitkit and Tambo et al. on the following issues: (i) the extreme resource limitations in outbreak areas, (ii) new technology to improve the available systems. Further recommendations echoed in this letter to editor by Wiwanitkit, who outlined the research priorities on the development of appropriate combined disease monitoring systems and good policy to allocate available tools and technology in resource-limited settings for epidemic scenarios. The journal’s editor, Professor Xiao-Nong Zhou, has therefore collated all parts of these discussions between authors in this letter to editor paper, in order to further promote research on a combined active and passive system to combat the present extending Ebola outbreak.

17.  Ebola Virus Infection: What Should Be Known? 
Ebola virus infection is the present global consideration. This deadly virus can result in a deadly acute febrile hemorrhagic illness. The patient can have several clinical manifestations. As a new emerging infection, the knowledge on this infection is extremely limited. The interesting issues to be discussed include a) the atypical clinical presentation, b) new diagnostic tool, c) new treatment, and d) disease prevention. Those topics will be discussed in this special review.

20.  Physiological Genomics Analysis for Mania: Supportive Evidence for Epigenetics Concept 
Mania is an important psychological problem. This disorder can be detected anywhere in the world. This psychological disorder becomes an important concern in modern psychological medicine.
There are some researches on the pathogenesis of this disease; however, there is no clear-cut on its etiopathogenesis. The big query is on the genetic underlying of the mania.
Materials and Methods:
Here, the author uses the physiological genomics study to better understand the pathogenesis of mania.
According to this work, the physiogenomics relationship on chromosomes could not be identified.
The result from this study shows that mania might not have a genetic, but epigenic origin, which is different from the well-known disorder in psychological medicine, Alzheimer's disease.
