Common eating habit patterns are associated with a high maximum occlusal force and pre-eating cardiac vagal tone
"is an interesting topic and recent literature is being enriched with studies that analyze the physiology of the TMJ system in relation to other functions of the central nervous system such as proprioception and the activities of the autonomic nervous system"
Giuseppe Messina, Handling Editor
Long-term outcomes and predictors of patients with ST elevated versus non-ST elevated myocardial infarctions in non-obstructive coronary arteries: a retrospective study in Northern China
"Good methodology"
Dinesh Voruganti, Handling Editor
Analysis of urine Raman spectra differences from patients with diabetes mellitus and renal pathologies
"This paper combines new methodological insights with insights about implementing Raman spectroscopy in practice."
Stephen Piccolo, Handling Editor
Association between coronary artery disease and incident cancer risk: a systematic review and meta-analysis of cohort studies
"It is a meta-analysis and describe a pivotal question."
Tian Li, Handling Editor
The impact of hypertension on the prognosis of patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: a single-center retrospective study
"This is an important study highlighting that hypertension is not associated with an increase in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy related death."
Celine Gallagher, Handling Editor
Validation of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol equations in pediatric population
"Clear aim."
Dinesh Voruganti, Handling Editor
A systematic analysis of anti-diabetic medicinal plants from cells to clinical trials
"The article will be useful to find the natural way of diabetes prevention and treatment."
Mohammed Kuddus, Handling Editor
Left ventricle dysfunction in patients with critical neonatal pulmonary stenosis: echocardiographic predictors. A single-center retrospective study
"Congenital heart defects range from minor to life-threatening. Among the latter is the association of pulmonary artery atresia with an intact ventricular septum, even after surgery. A widely used surgical approach works initially to save lives but in some infants, still leads to heart failure. This paper presents a retrospective analysis of the hemodynamic changes in the hearts of multiple operated children at one center in order to identify risk factors for later ventricular dysfunction."
Heather Etchevers, Handling Editor
On the improvement of heart rate prediction using the combination of singular spectrum analysis and copula-based analysis approach
"This study describes a novel method for predicting heart rate response to exercise."
Celine Gallagher, Handling Editor
The impact of aging and physical training on angiogenesis in the musculoskeletal system
"This article does a good job of describing some of the interrelationships between a variety of physiological systems and the ageing process and how this can be influenced by exercise."
Justin Keogh, Handling Editor
