A&D is a peer reviewed, open access online journal that aspires to publish novel and high-impact findings on central issues pertaining to the biology of aging, pathophysiology of age-related diseases, and innovative therapies for diseases afflicting the elderly population. The diseases of interest include Stroke, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson’s disease, Epilepsy, Dementia, Depression, Cardiovascular Disease, Cancer, Arthritis, Cataract, Osteoporosis, Diabetes and Hypertension. Studies on animal models and human tissues or cells are welcome.
Of particular interest: (A) Biology of Aging: Mechanisms underlying changes in gene & protein expression; Genes, mutations, signaling pathways affecting longevity and successful aging; Mechanisms underlying stem cell proliferation, differentiation and senescence; Role of stress at organismal and cellular levels; Comparative mechanistic studies across species; Efficacy of cognitive and physical exercises on longevity and aging; Effects of dietary-supplements on longevity and aging.
(B) Pathophysiology of Age-related Diseases: Disease pathology using cellular and molecular approaches; Extrinsic and intrinsic factors influencing disease onset, pathology & progression; Effects of physical exercise and environmental enrichment on disease progression. (C) Novel treatments for Diseases afflicting the elderly; Cellular therapies using specific stem, progenitor or precursor cells; Gene therapies using cell grafts or specific vectors; Effects of drugs, vitamins, hormones etc.
