Primary source[edit]

This[1] is a primary source and therefore not suitable. Another issue is the account that has repeatedly added it appears to be connected with the author in question. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 21:52, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

Also the text is already covered elsewhere in the article and this is not epidemiology "Common symptoms of Urogenital Schistosomiasis include painful urination or blood in the urine. If not treated, chronic infection can result in bladder cancer. There are many proteins secretions of S. haematobium that are potential candidates for causing granuloma formation and eventual bladder cancer. One secretion of interest is IPSE (interleukin-4-inducing principle from schistosome eggs), which has been shown to induce IL-4 expression and a Th2 immune response classically associated with anti-inflammatory properties" Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 22:06, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
I read the full text of the above [2] publication as well. I agree that it is a primary research paper. It is not a suitable source to use as evidence in the article as per WP:MEDRS. JenOttawa (talk) 22:14, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
