"Authors present studies showing positive effect of short- and long-term exposure to hypoxic conditions during exercise. Despite there are some conflicting results of studies, most showed that hypoxic exercising may improve glucose uptake and insulin sensitivity in T2DM patients more than when exercising under normoxic conditions. Important is that authors also present possible health risks of exercise under the hypoxic condition and those patients should be advised by a medical doctor before exercise."

"As the authors described that superficial CD34-positive fibroblastic tumor (SCPFT) is a newly discovered mesenchymal tumor that is mainly composed of fibroblasts. Given the lack of established diagnostic criteria, SCPFT is associated with a high misdiagnosis rate. This retrospective study analyzed the clinicopathological, immunohistochemical, and fluorescence in situ hybridization characteristics of four SCPFT patients. They provided useful information about the histopathological characteristics and genetic characteristics of this entity, which can help pathologists diagnose the disease more accurately. The figures and tables were good. The authors made a detailed discussion about the histopathological characteristics and differential diagnosis of SCPFT, which was instructive for pathologists. It will be better to summarize the previous reported cases and current cases in a table."

"The incidence of Budd-Chiari syndrome is low, and it is difficult to diagnose . Some medical personnel know little about this disease, and the misdiagnosis rate of the first diagnosis is high.This study reported a case of Budd-Chiari syndrome initially misdiagnosed as cirrhosis, alerting us to avoid misdiagnosis of the disease. BCS was confirmed by examination such as phlebography, and the obstructed inferior vena cava was re-opened by balloon angioplasty, and the patient's symptoms completely disappeared.It shows us the process of diagnosis and treatment of the disease. The results are authentic, the picture format is correct, and the language is concise and clear, which has certain research value."

"Reviews on the use of technology to treat psychiatric disorders have become commonplace during the period of the pandemic. All of them list various ICT based treatments that appear promising. They generally tend to be less critical of these treatments and avoid focusing on the limitations of these treatments. This review suffered from the same faults. Moreover, I do not think it added substantially to the existing literature. "

"The methodological aspects of this meta-analysis were adequate. However, there is a leck of precision in the way the manuscript has been written. For example the basic format of psychotherapeutic treatments is same whether they are delivered in-person or by web-based platforms. Thus, descriptions of CBT or MBT in the introduction were superfluous. The central question, was whether the treatments performed equally well in-person and on the net. This has not really been addressed. There are other problems. In different parts of the paper the authors use the term "intervention" as if there is one single intervention, which is obviously not true. Moderators of treatment efficacy should have been discussed at greater length because they have important implication for the delivery of web-based psychotherapies. "

"This is an intriguing study that shows the power of bile acid measurement in distinguishing the presence of liver disease from its absence. It is difficult to tell from Table 8 whether such analysis can distinguish disorders in which cholestasis predominates from those in which hepatocellular injury predominates, the study may not have been powered to do this. The most interesting possibility is that bile acid analysis could be used to complement or refine scoring systems currently used to estimate the probability of liver-related adverse outcomes."

"This is a study from Cecati and colleagues, investigating the potential role of the chemokine CXCL12 in the pathogenesis of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). Because CXCL12 pre-mRNA can be alternatively spliced into different isoforms (α, β, γ, δ, ε, θ), the investigators proposed to explore their specific roles in PDAC onset. Their findings, based on in vitro studies, suggest that α, β and γ CXCL12 isoforms can trigger different responses in a pancreatic pre-tumour model. The γ isoform induced the highest level of cell migration. The study subject is relevant and the experimental design is well elaborated. The text is well written and the data is well presented using informative tables and clear figures with adequate legends. The methodology is appropriate and there are no ethical issues or problems in statistical analysis. The paper is based on in vitro studies, using an interesting model that allows indirect insights into the pathogenesis of PDAC. "

"This is a comprehensive description of the histological spectrum of primary hepatic malignancies that should be of great practical value to the community of pathologists, a group that must deal with diagnostic dilemmas that occur when multiphasic dynamic liver imaging does not provide definitive information. It would have been helpful to know the extent to which liver histology guides cancer treatment, but I am sure that space limitations prevented this."

"This is a very comprehensive, well researched report. The patient was fortunate to have such a million dollar workup and thoughtful follow up. I have only two constructive comments to make. Firstly, a more professional presentation of the EKGs would have been helpful. Magnification of the recovery tracings would enable better presentation of the Q-T interval Secondly, the paper's discussion is too technical for most practicing cardiologists to appreciate. While the conclusions are understandable, the methodology is too complex for a "clinical" journal."

"Technically, a convincing contribution. Albeit the side comment on the problems with sorting cells using LGR5-antibodies might be of interest to many paople considering LGR5 as the holy grale of intestinal cancer stemness. Another puzzling technical issue is the lack of information on STR-testing of the used cell line clones - they were originally from the ATCC, but only indirectly since in the Acknowledgements, the authors thank Professor McGuckin. Especially when analyzing cell line individual features, the lack of this information diminishes it's usefullness for many scientific nit-pickers like me. I would like to add an alternative interpretation of these, and many similar results on stem cells in CRC cell lines: the fact that LGR5 negative cells and cell lines regularly grow nicely in vitro and when carefully looking on the in vivo data of this manuscript often also in vivo, is regularly ignored by many researchers. The same is in our experience also true for many other of the candidate tumor stem cell markers and even for the funcitonally more convincing side population (classically done by Hoechst staining). Thus, the true level of plasticity in CRC cells is in biological reality most likely indeed very high! Part of this complexity has been adressed in the last part of the discussion - which was a pleasure to read. "
