Objective: To our knowledge, no study has provided strict evidence of a clear relationship between a human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection and human essential hypertension (EH). Methods: To examine the possible role of HCMV in the etiology of EH, a literature searched through the electronic database PubMed was performed. Data were accurately assessed and re-analyzed by new statistical methods. Results: The meta-analysis results of this study provide evidence that HCMV infection and essential hypertension are connected. Conclusions: Without HCMV infection no EH. Keywords: Human cytomegalovirus, essential hypertension, causal relationship.

Objective: Despite decades of research and major efforts, a cause or the cause of schizophrenia is still not identified. Although many studies indicate that infectious agents are related to schizophrenia no definite consensus has been reached on this issue. Methods: The purpose of this study was to investigate relationship between varicella zoster virus (VZS) and schizophrenia while relying on new statistical methods. Results: The meta-analysis results provide striking evidence that VZV is a necessary condition of schizophrenia. Conclusions: There is some weak evidence that VZV infection is the cause of schizophrenia. Keywords: Varicella zoster virus, schizophrenia, causal relationship.

The P Value of Likely Extreme Events

Authors: Ilija Barukčić
Comments: 21 pages.

Objective: Sometimes there are circumstances where it is necessary to calculate the P Value of extremely events xt like p(xt) = 1 while reliable methods are rare. Methods: A systematic approach to the problem of the P Values of extremely events is provided. Results: New theorems for calculating P Values of extremely likely events are developed. Conclusions: It is possible to calculate the P Values even of extreme events. E-mail: Keywords: P Value, likely events, cause, effect, causal relationship.
