Polarization of Human THP-1 Macrophages: Link between Adenosine Receptors, Inflammation and Lipid Accumulation
Michael J. Littlefild, Isaac Teboul, Iryna Voloshyna and Allison B. Reiss
Rationale: Macrophages are key players in inflammation and atherosclerosis. They express surface receptors of different subtypes for the endogenous autocoid adenosine. Macrophages within atherosclerotic lesions attain two clear-cut functional phenotypes M1 (pro-inflammatory) and M2 (immunosuppressive). This study examines the relative expression of adenosine receptors and proteins involved in cholesterol transport in .. read more

Volunteer reviewers share their profiled expertise and devote valuable hours of their time to guarantee that submitted solitary articles are timely and well-intentioned of insertion in their publication. Within a span of one week of being submitted, each journal article is screened for preliminary review by the journal editor.
The journal handling editor decides among four options for routing the paper aptly:
- Send out for review
- Transfer (to another CMIL journal)
- Reoccurrence without review (outside of scope)
- Return without review (grammar/syntax errors)
When a journal paper is reviewed, one of the four options are available to the reviewers and editor:
- Accept in present form
- Revise for Editor alone
- Re-reviewing advised
- Declined final
Manuscripts must represent technically proficient work; however, the primary criterion for acceptance or rejection will be the base on scholarly work level of practical or reader interest.
Screening by editors can be facilitated precisely by following the below appended norms:
Send out for review
The document comes across the basic requirements declared by CMIL and the journal. At least two reviewers will be set by the journal editor, who will send each reviewer a copy of the paper. The reviewers mend the manuscript and send in their review, selecting one of the recommended options and evaluating the paper. The reviewers send their reviews to the editor, who examines the reviews and completes a final review. The editor then forwards the reviews to CMIL. The journal handling editor for the journal communicates the results of the editor's decision to the authors.
Transfer (to another CMIL journal)
The editor and/or reviewers may choose that the paper is not suitable for the journal and would be more appropriate to a different CMIL journal. In this case, the decision is to recommend that the authors transfer the paper to the different CMIL journal.
Reoccurrence without review (outside of scope)
The editor and/or reviewers may elect that the paper is not suitable for the journal. The editor or reviewers may explain why the paper is outside the journal's scope and/or suggest a non-CMIL journal that would be appropriate.
Return without review (grammar/syntax errors)
The editor may determine that the paper has sufficient problems with english grammar and syntax that it is not ready for review in CMIL.
Review Decisions by Reviewers and Editors
Accept in present form
Based on two or more reviews, the editor decides that the manuscript is ready for publication in its present form. The editor sends the two reviews and his recommendation to CMIL respectively and later the further communication with author is carried out by editorial office.
Revise for Editor alone
Based on at least one or more reviews, the editor decides that the manuscript is almost ready for publication; however, there are a few content changes that need to be approved before final acceptance. The editor sends the two reviews and his recommendation to CMIL respectively and later the further communication with author is carried out by editorial office.
Based on at least two reviews, the editor decides that the manuscript is not ready for publication; this decision is neither an acceptance nor a decline. The editor sends the two reviews and his recommendation to CMIL respectively and later the further communication with author is carried out by editorial office.
If the authors wish to take it further, they revise the paper and send it to CMIL, along with a letter that explains how the reviewer's comments have been addressed. The revised paper and letter are forwarded to the editor, who reviews them and completes a new review. The editor sends the two reviews and editor comments and his recommendation to CMIL respectively and later the further communication with author is carried out by editorial office.
Based on at least two reviews, the editor decides that the manuscript is not appropriate for publication. The editor sends the reviews to ASCE and the Editorial Coordinator communicates this decision along with the reviews to the authors, alerting them that no further revisions will be considered.
Note: A manuscript that has once been declined or rejected may not be peer reviewed again in our CMIL journals.
