Writing style

Q: Is it clear and understandable?

A: Good

 

Comments:

·       The last sentence of the section “Prenatal” of the “Kallmann Syndrome” under “Theme 9: Fetal Pathology” under the “Section 1 Human embryological and fetal pathological studies” does not make sense. Hence, this sentence should be rephrased.

·       The 3rd sentence of the “Implement new methods in fetal pathology from other medical disciplines” under “Theme 9: Fetal Pathology” under the “Section 1 Human embryological and fetal pathological studies” does not make sense. Hence, this sentence should be rephrased.

 

Further comments on the paper

Comments: This review article is divided into 3 sections. The first section focuses on the normal and pathological development in a human fetus, conducted on human tissue in the period 1970-2005 at the department of orthodontics, Copenhagen. The second section investigates and describes the developmental biology of a number of craniofacial disorders on different animals and the third section compares the findings in human and animal experimental studies which aids pre and postnatal craniofacial diagnostics as well as postnatal treatment. This study calls for further research on craniofacial embryology in human and animal models.
