Lakshmi Nilakantan commented on Synthesis and properties of multifunctional nitroxyl radical hindered-amine light stabilizers
Reported synthesis of hindered-amine light stabilizers having nitroxyl radical as a component is interesting. Characterization of reported HALS are good. Since the reported HALS are radicals, it would be beneficial for readers to mention the broadening effect shown in NMR. Comparison of UV-Vis data...
Rostyslav Sklyar commented on Virtual Active Touch Using Randomly Patterned Intracortical Microstimulation
The pairs of Index Terms 'bidirectional interface'&'brain–machine interface' and 'intracortical microstimulation'&'neural prosthesis' are synonymical. On the other hand, the core method 'Active exploration' was not anyhow emphasized. However, a brain–machine–brain interface with a bidirectional neur...
Pol Nadal commented on Horizontal Gene Transfer from Diverse Bacteria to an Insect Genome Enables a Tripartite Nested Mealybug Symbiosis
The size of bacterial genomes, and consequently the amount of genes that a bacterium may harbour, varies greatly amongst species. Commonly, the larger amount of genes that an organism has, the larger number of functions that it can perform in order to survive in their competitive ecological niches....
Neil Lawrence commented on A practical approach to Bland-Altman plots and variation coefficients for log transformed variables
I really enjoyed this paper, thank you for this contribution as the back transformation of limits of agreement would be very useful for people quickly looking at data. However, I found a couple of drawbacks. Firstly, there is no accounting for systematic bias in the formulae you propose to calculate...
Jing Zhang commented on Tailoring the Emission Color of Carbon Dots through Nitrogen-Induced Changes of Their Crystalline Structure
In this study, carbon dots with low content and high content of nitrogen are synthesized. They show differences both in structure and optical emission. The low-content carbon dots are blue-emitting and possess hexagonal graphite crystalline core structure. The high-content are nanoparticles that are...
Amber Jolly commented on Impact of Microbiota on Resistance to Ocular Pseudomonas aeruginosa-Induced Keratitis
This article makes an important connection between ocular and gut response to infection and suggests there are mechanisms by which the innate immune system maintains a kind of short-term, dynamic and system-wide immunological memory. The authors use nucleic acid detection methods to claim the existe...
Kelvin Chan commented on Reversal of endothelial dysfunction reduces white matter vulnerability in cerebral small vessel disease in rats
Hypertension is one of the most important risk factors for cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD). In fact, the majority (70-80%) of all patients had a history of chronic hypertension. CSVD not just affects small arterioles, but also capillaries and veins in the brain. Nearly half of dementia is belie...
Clark Holdsworth commented on Pre-clinical assessment of a water-in-fluorocarbon emulsion for the treatment of pulmonary vascular diseases
This is an interesting study of the delivery method. I'd imagine it could be repeated for any number of similar circumstances to determine proof of concept, as demonstrated here. Certainly an interesting series of possible studies. I'd wonder what sort of rescue efficacy it might demonstrate on pulm...
