Aging & Disease (A&D)


Aging & Disease (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 (but not limited to) Stroke, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson’s disease, Epilepsy, Dementia, Depression, Cardiovascular Disease, Cancer, Arthritis, Cataract, Osteoporosis, Diabetes and Hypertension. Studies on animal models as well as human tissues or cells are welcome.


Manuscripts in the following areas are 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 and antioxidants for treatment of diseases
