Blastocystis Hits The 1,000 Entry Mark In PubMed

Yesterday, the number of Blastocystis entries in PubMed reached 1,000! PubMed is a public resource comprising more than 22 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books.

In comparison, there are currently 7,641 entries on Entamoeba, 6,630 on Cryptosporidium and 235 entries on Dientamoeba.

I plan to introduce the "Hall of Fame in Blastocystis Research" in a future post, but already now I can reveal that the researcher with most Blastocystis-related publications is Dr Hisao Yoshikawa according to Web of Science (WoS), which currently returns 895 hits on a search on Blastocystis; Dr Yoshikawa has at least 43 publications on Blastocystis alone (WoS), and at least 37 Blastocystis-specific peer-reviewed journal articles (PubMed) since 1987.
