Effects of table tennis multi-ball training on dynamic posture control

Editor rating: 6 / 10

Justin Keogh –– The importance of dynamic balance can be seen for athletes and clinical situations and this study adds to this wider literature.
Application of built-in adjuvants for epitope-based vaccines

Editor rating: 6 / 10

Mario Alberto Flores-Valdez –– It constitutes an up to date piece of work about adjuvants.
Efficient generation of human primordial germ cell-like cells from pluripotent stem cells in a methylcellulose-based 3D system at large scale

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Shao-Chen Sun –– A system which produces more primordial germ cell-like cells.
Simultaneous rapid detection of Hantaan virus and Seoul virus using RT-LAMP in rats

Editor rating: 6 / 10

Jerson Silva –– The manuscript establishes a assay based on Reverse Transcription Loop-mediated Isothermal Amplification (RT-LAMP) to detect Hantaan virus (HTNV) and Seoul virus (SEOV) simultaneously. The authors show that the assay was faster, more cost effective, and easier to perform when compared with other methods.
Inhibition of MEK1/2 and GSK3 (2i system) affects blastocyst quality and early differentiation of porcine parthenotes

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Shao-Chen Sun –– The authors introduce a approach which could improve early embryo development.
In vivo antioxidant activity of mackerel (Scomber japonicus) muscle protein hydrolysate

Editor rating: 6 / 10

Jara Pérez-Jiménez –– This article is interesting because it may show the potential of mackerel muscle protein hydolysates as ingredients.
Chemical analysis and evaluation of antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of fruit fractions of Mauritia flexuosa L. f. (Arecaceae)

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Chin Ping Tan –– Evaluation of potential bioactiive compounds from a less commonly consumed fruit is an interesting topic to researchers working on the similar research area.
Specific and reliable detection of Myosin 1C isoform A by RTqPCR in prostate cancer cells

Editor rating: 6 / 10

Yuriy Orlov –– I believe it is important technical paper for particular problem of RT-PCR calibration, but limited to the topic only.
Sclerostin promotes human dental pulp cells senescence

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Praveen Arany –– Important data for regenerative endodontics that can, someday soon, prevent the need for root canal treatments!
Discovery of two skin-derived dermaseptins and design of a TAT-fusion analogue with broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity and low cytotoxicity on healthy cells

Editor rating: 6 / 10

Marta Kostrouchova –– The reported data may be important for development of new antibacterial therapies.
