"Most COVID-19 patients had marked IgM memory B cell depletion, and this was associated to a higher mortality rate and a higher risk of developing superimposed infections I ask question to author. What is the probability that a person who has undergone splenectomy, asplenia or spleen dysfunction will suffer from COVID-19 and become OPSI? "

"Author write “In addition, another group of researchers recommended elevated plasma levels of C-reactive protein, lactate dehydrogenase, creatinine kinase, transaminase, abnormal myocardial enzyme spectrum or creatinine as COVID-19 indicators They also showed that cytokine release syndrome is an important vital indicator of disease progression. On the other hand, Wan et al demonstrated higher IL-6 and IL-10 levels, and lower CD4+T and CD8+T levels as indicators of COVID-19.” I think that LDH, CRP, WBC, platelets and D-dimer are important parameters in the serological diagnosis of COVID-19. COVID-19 has hypercytokineemia, but it seems that CRP is less elevated than bacterial pneumonia from my impression. 1.Please tell me the reason why CRP is less elevated in COVID-19 than bacterial pneumonia 2.Please explain why 80% of people with COVID-19 do not have lung lesions, while 20% have lung lesions and some have severe ARDS. Moreover, please tell me the etiology which some cases become severe and become ARDS. "

"Taherkhani and Farshadpour described the case of a 17-month-old girl that developed vaccine-related poliovirus infection, despite the previously administered four doses of oral poliovirus vaccine. Introduction: Conditions when oral poliovirus vaccine may become pathogenic, by reverting towards virulent strains and produce poliomyelitis are very well presented. Also, the importance of still using the oral poliovirus vaccine is correctly emphasized, proving that the authors known well the issue. Case presentation: Well-described, in an elegant manner, correct structure and clearly written text. My main concern – even though the child had no previous infections, a complete list of tests to exclude a primary deficiency (with later clinical onset) was not performed. Figures 1 and 2 are of good quality and illustrative. Discussion paragraph describes all etiological possibilities that were considered in this child, with references to literature. Pertinent data and nicely interpreted. References are up-to-date. Overall, useful and with practical importance manuscript, which could also be used to raise an alarm towards health policies in concerned countries. The introduction (and large-scale use) of the inactivated poliovirus vaccine (originally Salk vaccine) should be gradually implemented. "

"This article is a minireview which focused on the application of AI for early gastrointestinal cancer. The development of AI system for this field is an interesting topic for endoscopists as early diagnosis and treatment can bring patients better prognosis. However, challenges to overcome for clinical use have remained."

"1. Ethics: Mini review article so no need ethical approval. 2. Methods and 3. Results: Good content structure with introduction, state of art DL techniques and its application to medical fields, focussing in endoscopy for diagnosis of oesophageal diseases, future work and conclusion. 4. Figures: very good quality images and easy to follow the legend to figures. Good summary of Table 1. 5. Biostatistics: No data, so no need. 6. References: Reasonably cite the latest references, 45 in total, although there are a few cited first authors Gao X or Gao XW. 7. Language: easy to read and understand with good introduction of some of the terminology for novice readers. The authors brought out 3 relevant points for future work in AI-enhanced early detection of oesophageal cancer that 1) detection should be multi-classes, 2) to increase wide acceptance by clinicians and, 3) should be real time process during endoscopy."
