We analyze the possibility of coherent modes for DNA dynamics in a general model recently pro-posed by Joyeux and Florescu [J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 21, 034101(2009)]. We show that the value they used for their results are not suitable to describe wave propagation in DNA. We therefore investigate parameter values in order to obtain coherent solitary waves with characteristics that are know experimentally.
