Disease Markers Scope 

Background

Scope of the Special Journal of Medicine, Surgery and Disease Markers [SJ-MSD]  defines what information the editorial board thinks could be of interest to our readers and stakeholders and in line with that authors are advised to send articles that will help achieve that objective. To achieve the central goal of sustainable development through innovations we must work hard to see how we can utilize the scarce resources to leverage the dynamic forces of disease pandemics devastating the world including human plants and animals.

The rapidly changing dynamics of disease management which began from curative, to diagnostic and now preventive have allowed disease managers to know the possible diseases that may manifest in human-animal and plant bodies long before the disease becomes obvious.

Special Journal of Medicine, Surgery, and Disease Markers [SJ-MSD] will accept for consideration manuscripts within its scope that deal with rapid identification and validation of protein-based networks of biomarkers for human, plant, and animal diseases.

Genotype with phenotypes assessment

Manuscripts that seek to link genotype with phenotypes so that pathologists can predict genetic-based disorders using phenotypic classic and validated observations including papers that speed up the development of disease markers specific for identified disease conditions. This will be good for intervention, diagnosis, monitoring disease severity, patient’s response, evaluation, and prediction of diseases in the region

Protein-based biomarkers

Special Journal of Physiology and Disease Markers will accept papers within its scope dealing with

  • protein-based biomarkers,
  • their validation to confirm their involvement in the following processes:
  • Oncogenes cell cycle and structure,
  • the acute phase response and hormonal control,
  • angiogenesis,
  • development,
  • cell signaling,
  • hydrolysis differentiation,
  • proliferation,
  • apoptosis,
  • hematopoiesis,
  • immune and hormonal responses,
  • cellular homing,
  • nucleotide function respectively

 Integrative nutritional biomarkers scope

with details showing how they could be used to:  

  1. Quantify, validate or complement effective food  
  2. Explain physiological and pathological responses to some food behaviors,
  3. Observe responses to defined drug treatment  
  4. Outline how different people differ when given different food or diet.
  5. Design a specific time table for different people aiming to achieve the best health and wellness
  6. Show the effects of food intake
