Alzheimer's Disease Review Series Virtual Special Issue - Free Access!

This special edition is a collection of the Alzheimer's disease review articles previously published in the journal.

"Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most frequent type of dementia in the elderly and, due to a permanent increase of human life span, its prevalence is growing.  The Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine has initiated an AD series, based on the integration of existing theories, on new emerging data in the field and on translation and validation of the currently existing knowledge. The journal would also like to create a fertile discussion about the impact of basic and pre-clinical research on clinical progress in diagnosing and treating AD."

Interstitial Cells of Cajal Review Series Virtual Special Issue - Free Access

This special edition is a collection of the Interstitial Cells of Cajal review articles previously published in the journal.

"Interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) are the pacemaker cells of the muscle layers of the gastrointestinal tract. They provide rhythmicity and direction to the peristaltic activity of the distal stomach, small intestine and colon for mixing, breakdown of particles and propulsion.
This pacemaker system consists of primary pacemaker cells, the ICC associated with the myenteric plexus, as well as the intramuscular ICC which provide pathways for propagation of the electrical slow wave, the pacemaker activity. ICC may serve innervation through specific neural pathways such as to facilitate gut & brain information via afferent vagal nerves. Although most of the work on ICC in carried out in the gut, ICC are also identified in the urinary tract, the portal vein and the pancreas. Extensive research and controversies are keeping this area of investigation fascinating. Functions of ICC in human organs and in the pathophysiology of human diseases is currently extensively investigated, as well as mechanisms of injury and repair. The journal is inviting scientists from every continent to submit original articles or propose reviews where they can air their personal views on any aspect of ICC structure and function."

Tissue Engineering Review Series - Virtual Special Edition - Free Access

"JCMM has been receiving an increasing number of excellent reviews from authorities in the field of Tissue Engineering  (TE) and original papers that bring these valuable high caliber informations to scientific and medical experts in the fields of cellular and molecular medicine, biomedical engineering, biomaterials science, molecular and cell biology, genetic engineering, and surgery to present and discuss advances in this emerging field.

Since Tissue engineering is widely understood as the use of a combination of cells, engineering and materials methods, and suitable biochemical and physio-chemical factors to improve or replace biological functions it is obvious that  a translational journal can address the readership on a much larger scale than a monospecific journal can do. The review series on tissue engineering in JCMM meets the urgent need for high-quality review papers due to the rapid expansion of the field."
