I found this is a very good option: Cell Press Multi-Journal Submission helps us to find the right fit for our research paper quickly and easily by considering it simultaneously for multiple Cell Press journals of our choice. Choosing Multi-Journal Submission increases the likelihood that your paper will be formally peer reviewed at Cell Press, helps us avoid serial rounds of review, and shortens the time needed to go from submission to publication.

Commented on Acute Effects of Coffee Consumption on Health among Ambulatory Adults
Good article recently published in NEJM. In short, in this randomized trial, the consumption of caffeinated coffee did not result in significantly more daily premature atrial contractions than the avoidance of caffeine.

Article

Commented on Energy Drinks and atrial fibrillation in young adults
Interesting article! The study highlights the potential link between high consumption of Energy Drinks (EDs), particularly when mixed with alcohol, and the onset of atrial fibrillation (AF) in young individuals, evidenced by three clinical cases. It underscores the need for heightened awareness regarding cardiac risks associated with EDs among young people, due to the combined effects of caffeine and other substances in these drinks.

Commented on Influence of coffee and caffeine consumption on atrial fibrillation in hypertensive patients
Consumption of coffee and caffeine impacts the natural resolution of atrial fibrillation. Individuals without high blood pressure who rarely consume coffee have a higher chance of their arrhythmia resolving on its own within 48 hours from when symptoms begin. In contrast, patients with high blood pressure exhibit a U-shaped correlation between their coffee intake and the natural resolution of atrial fibrillation; those who consume a moderate amount of coffee are less likely to experience this spontaneous resolution. Furthermore, patients with an enlarged left ventricle experience a decreased likelihood of their arrhythmia resolving without intervention.

Commented on Characterizing the propagation pathway of neuropathological events of Alzheimer's disease using harmonic wavelet analysis
This study introduces a manifold-based harmonic network analysis as a novel approach to identify Alzheimer's disease (AD) propagation patterns in the brain, serving as a new imaging biomarker. By utilizing region-adaptive harmonic wavelets to reflect the brain's network topology, this method uniquely captures how neuropathological burdens spread in a prion-like fashion across brain networks, offering insights into the disease's pathophysiological mechanisms. Tested on large-scale data from ADNI, this approach not only provides a potential tool for early cognitive decline prediction but also sheds light on the in-vivo pathways of neuropathological spread, distinguishing itself with a solid mathematical foundation compared to traditional empirical biomarkers.

Commented on Alzheimer's Disease Diagnosis via Intuitionistic Fuzzy Random Vector Functional Link Network
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a leading neurodegenerative disorder characterized by memory loss and cognitive decline, with early diagnosis and treatment shown to slow its progression. A novel approach, the intuitionistic fuzzy random vector functional link network (IFRVFL), is proposed for AD diagnosis, offering a superior method by utilizing a fuzzy weighted approach to optimize classifier generation, demonstrating improved effectiveness and robustness over traditional models in early AD detection.
