Platelet-activating factor (PAF) is a potent phospholipid activator of g-protein coupled receptor. It also acts as as a mediator of biological functions such as platelet aggregation and degranulation, inflammation, and anaphylaxis at very low concentrations. It is also responsible for changes in vascular permeability and chemotaxis and oxidative burst of leukocytes.Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submittedÂ manuscriptsÂ and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the acceptedÂ standardsÂ of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
