It's my pleasure to present before you the first issue of IJPM 2014. I'm greatly thankful to all my associate editors, editorial board members and referees for their constant support and efforts in rapid processing of articles.

As we all know that fields of pathology, microbiology and hematology are rapidly moving from morphology to molecular biology for diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy of various disorders. This issue of IJPM also reflects the same and we find many interesting articles dealing with the mutational and genetic changes in various disorders. Articles by Niraj Kumari et al. on gall bladder cancer, Ying et al. on the effect of CagA + Hp on esophageal squamous carcinoma, Ec 109 cells in vitro and Sargolzaei et al. on INK4a locus mutation in relation to grades and stages of oral squamous cell carcinoma are some of these interesting articles to mention with.

Prevalence of various disorders and results of diagnostic tests may vary in various populations and therefore, it is very important to study the changes and standardize the tests in a particular population for the optimum results.

Kotwal et al. have tried to find out the incidence of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) in ethnic Indian population and provide an analysis of tests used to diagnose HIT.

Similarly, Subramanian et al. have tried to assess the coagulation status using thromboelastography (TEG) in Indian population. TEG is relatively recent assay to analyze the coagulation state of a blood sample, providing a continuous visualization of physical changes occurring during blood coagulation and there is a paucity of published literature from Indian population and the study may act as a good base for future studies.

I hope the articles presented in this issue will be of interest to both teaching and practicing pathologists and microbiologists. Your comments for improving the journal are solicited.

I once again request the authors to submit more of original research work than case reports and/or letters and avoid any kind of plagiarism (that is quite tempting in this era of free online access to articles and images) and help in improving the status of the journal.

With best wishes!
