Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy
Entirely in English
An international multidisciplinary journal with two objectives:
- to create an interface between clinical and laboratory responses to drugs and to investigate critical approaches to different pathologies with regard to biological and clinical data,
- to provide a niche for authors whose work is not directly defined by the review criteria of existing journals.
Biomedicine and pharmacotherapy is one of the few journals at the forefront of fundamental and technical science, biological and medical disciplines, therapeutics and pathological description. General fields of interest include molecular and cell biology, genetic disease, immunology and immunoregulation and chemotherapy. Special emphasis is placed on studies of specific topics such as differentiation, pharmacology and toxicology, preclinical and clinical pharmacology, the effects of drugs on cell structural and functional elements, the mechanism of gene regulation in normal and pathological cells, the role of viruses and parasites and the therapy of the diseases they induce. Brief reports of meetings, symposia and conferences will also be considered for publication as well as announcements of scientific meetings or academic courses.
