"The article is very interesting because it presents a minimally invasive spondylectomy for metastasis in the cervical spine. Minimally invasive cervical spondylectomy with tubular retractor is the most gentle on the surrounding structures - soft tissues, nerve roots and paraspinal muscles. It should be noted that it is a metastasis of follicular carcinoma of the thyroid gland with subsequent intake of iodine131, which further contributes to a significant suppression of residual tumor cells."

" It is an interesting meta-analysis which showed telemedicine interventions could significantly improve HbA1c, health outcomes as well as quality of life scores. Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disease and education is an important part in all stage of diabetic therapy. Good telemedicine intervention could improve patients' compliance and sure to effectively improve HbA1c and thus other related heath outcome. More importantly, it is a very economic way to help patients' to control their blood sugar."

"The article entitled “Inhibition of matrix metalloproteinase-9 secretion by dimethyl sulfoxide and cyclic adenosine monophosphate in human monocytes” by Darcy R Denner, Maria LD Udan-Johns, Michael R Nichols describes the stimulation of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) and tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα) secretion from human monocyte cells by lipopolysaccharide, and the inhibition of this process by dimethyl sulfoxide and increased intracellular levels of 3',5'-cyclic adenosine monophosphate. The authors claimed that the experimental findings demonstrated that dimethyl sulfoxide concentration must be carefully controlled in inflammatory studies, that MMP-9 secretion occurred downstream from TNFα secretion and that the two processes were distinct, and that TNFα is an integral component of the pathway leading to MMP-9 secretion. To track the scientific quality of the paper, I give the following comments. 1 Ethics: Does the ethical approval form provided by the author meet the requirements? N/A. The authors used cultured cells but not animals or human samples. 2 Methods: Is the experimental method effective? Can it be repeated by fellow researchers (according to adequate textual/citation content presented)? Yes. The methods are detailed introduced and can be repeated.. 3 Results: Are the results true and authentic? Is the theory or hypothesis of universal significance validated or partially validated? Yes. The results are true and authentic. The hypothesis of universal significance is partially validated. 4 Figures and tables: Does the author provide perfect tables, line charts and/or graphs? Or, does the author provide figures and tables that are confusing, poorly constructed and/or not well-annotated? One of my concerns is that the loading control for immunoblot analysis, such as beta-actin and or GAPDH is missing. 5 Biostatistics: Does the author provide perfect biostatistics data? Or, does the author provide tables and line charts that have mistakes in the data? Yes. 6 References: Does the author scientifically and reasonably cite the latest references which are important in this field and related to the scientific problems and research hypotheses addressed in the study? Or, does the author self-cite, omit, mis-cite and/or over-cite references? Yes. 7 Language: Does the language in article correctly, clearly and concisely express the information? Or, does the article have multiple grammatical and spelling mistakes? Yes. 8 Caveats or drawbacks: What are the caveats or drawbacks for the results? A loading control should be examined. The levels of the target proteins should be subjected to normalization using the loading control. "

"This systematic review is well design. It based on randomized controlled trials was conducted to appraise the benefit of chemotherapy-assisted addition of COX-2 for advanced NSCLC. The method was effective. By meta-analysis 12 trials, they concluded that COX-2 inhibitor combined with chemotherapy increased total effective rate of advanced NSCLC with the possible increased risk of blood toxicity and cardiovascular events and had no effect on survival index. This study can provide reference value for the application of COX-2 in the treatment of lung cancer."

"As we all are pretty much aware that 10-33 % of Open Angle Glaucoma patients have mutations in several genes, which are mainly myocilin, optineurin, and CYP1B1. A lot of genetic evaluation studies are being done in the recent past 5 years at a much larger-scale to discover more common genetic risk factors for POAG and PACG . These studies had lead the frontiers to know many more risk factors which include changes in the DNA sequences (near or in the genes such as caveolin 1 and 2 (CAV1/CAV2), CDKN2B antisense RNA, TMCO1, SIX1/SIX6, and LRP12/ZFPM2 genes) or actual loss of DNA (TBK1 and GALC), and various genes have been indicated. So to know how and why all these genes have the potential of developing POAG is a major concern for all the Ophthalmologists and researchers. Primary congenital or juvenile open angle glaucoma (PCOAG) is the most common childhood glaucoma affecting children from birth to age 3 -30 Years and is a main cause of irreversible blindness in this young age-group. Mutations in the CYP1B1 gene have been found to cause PCG in children worldwide and are the dominant genetic cause for glaucoma in children in the Middle East and central Europe. So. the authors had presented quite an extraordinary case with a very uncommon genetic mutation in the OLFM2 and SIX6 genes in a case of Juvenile open angle glaucoma. This will further encourage the researchers involved in the various studies to co-relate genetic mutations associated with Glaucoma and to develop appropriate genetic - therapy for primary glaucoma patients."

"Thank you for the work. A small comment: instead of looking at the impact of sutured anastomoses on local ischemia, it would be more helpful to compare with any of ischemic preconditionings or preventive treatments when a stapled bowel anastomosis is not applied.

"Although the topic is of potential (although limited) interest in this paper it is not possible to evaluate the true relevance of the results and conclusions as essential controls are absent. In fact it is unknown whether a 48-72h treatment with the compounds can have an effect on cell viability/proliferation causing a relevant alterations of target release for causes that might not be associated to a specific signal transduction pathway. Standard cell proliferation/cell damage assays could have helped to answer this. Indeed I cannot evaluate whether the release is associated to altered proliferation or some type of cell damage other than a specific effect on the signal transduction machinery as the authors suggest. It is not even clear if the same number of cells has been analyzed lacking any loading control. The authors only report that they have centrifuged the cells. The authors in fact assume that no effect other than on the direct signal machinery associated to TNFa and MMP9 is involved but after 24 to 72hr treatment they need to provide appropriate controls to secure the real value of the data presented. Research motivation and research objective sections contain essentially the same sentences whereas they should express different concepts. "

"I reviewed this interesting case report with 3 recurrences of Takotsubo syndrome, and I have some comments to make related to the ECG aspect of the patient: Please explain the electrical stimulation artifact before the P wave in Figure 1A and B. Does the patient have a single or a double -chamber pacemaker ? Please explain the stimulation artifact on the T wave in Figure 1 B. Could the decrease in the LV ejection fraction be explained by a pacemaker malfunction? Or by asynchronous stimulation of the right ventricle?"

"Congratulation to the authors for this excellent paper with high Expertise, very good Standards in diagnosis, indication, surgery, documentation of M+M and Follow up, obviously in all pancreatic patietns of your Group. Your Definition of the criteria für PPDR are clear, and your Change of operatve procedures after Evaluation of the results of previous types of surgery applied is a sign of high scientific knowledge. Your conclusion should be accepted by the Major pancreatic surgeons, eg. organized in "ESPAC". The reasons for giving this Statement are as follows: Your Patient number is very high as well as your Expertise in treating patients with pancreatic disease either conservatively of surgically. Obviously the indications for conservative vs. surgical Treatment are made at the interdisciplinary Level (although a Gastroenterologist is not among your coauthors). Your radiologist are very well equipped and precise in their daignosis (83/84 of the diagnoses made by radiology, endoscopy, neddle biopsy/pathology were correct). In your introduction you mention, that the disease CDDW is rare, implicating, that the patients should be monitored/treated in spezialized Centers. Your experience led to the Change of the operative procedures and the clear Definition for the indication of PPDR in CDDW. - As you are a top Institution in Moscow/Russia, you consequently have the knowledge and the means not only to perform high Quality surgery, but also to document your results adequately. You are using the optimal paramenters for Quality of life ("Itzbicky"), complications (M+M, Clavien-Dindo) and Fisdtula grades. Your Long term follow up up to 188 months is also a high Quality sign of your Group. Congratulations that you convinced so many of your male pts. to stop drinking alcohol postoperatively. Regarding the excellent Long term functional results of PPDR vs. PD (and more expressed after Duodenim Preserving surgery or even Drainage) are convincing and very well documented, also in the Tables. A remark to table 6: The hospital stay after PPDR is significantly longer than after PD (p=0.03).; in the discussion you make sthe Statement that it was not significanly different. The discussion respects all questions and the reports of other Groups. The Limitation "retrospective" and observational is correct. But a prospective correlatice Trial e.g. comparing PD vs. PPDR is nearly impossible to conduct, and regarding the extremely cklear Advantage of PPDR vs. PD not justified."

"In this paper the authors have investigated the regulation mechanisms of the secretion of MMP-9 and TNFα by DMSO and cAMP in human monocytes, suggesting that DMSO inhibits the MMP-9 release, but not of cAMP, whereas cAMP inhibits both MMP-9 and TNFα at different monocyte cell exposure time points. The paper is readily intelligible because the experimental design is well-constructed, clear and well described with figures and tables appropriate to the subject matter. The scientific background and aims are clearly explained. The methodology seems to be appropriate to the research field and the conclusions logically follow from the results. The references are pertinent. Although this manuscript isn’t very original and innovative, since other papers were already published about this topic, however it’s very interesting. No endogen control was used by authors to performe the experiments (Western blots, SDS-PAGE)."

"The paper is interesting. Experimental methods are effective and the hypothesis is well validated by the results. Figures are clearly presented and annotated. However, in the paper it is not clear why in the abstract, in the highlight, in the introduction and in the most part of the discussion the authors speak about only of the LPS-induced MMP-9 secretion in THP-1 human monocytes and not also of Amyloid-β peptide-induced matrix-metalloproteinase-9 secretion. Instead, in my opinion the most interesting data is the MMP-9 induction by the Amyloid-β peptide (Figure 7), even if the data is not totally new. It can have more importance from the clinical point of view. Moreover, a better explaining of the implication of the study findings and of the MMP-9 role in the Alzheimer’s disease and in other related diseases would have been necessary. "
