Clinical and Molecular Allergy
Clin Mol Allergy
Published/Hosted by BioMed Central.
Clinical and Molecular Allergy is an Open Access, peer-reviewed, online journal that addresses all clinical and molecular aspects of allergic disease; this is accomplished by the publication of timely reviews, case reports or research studies that provide insights into the molecular basis of allergic disease. Clinical and Molecular Allergy is aimed at reviewing all molecular aspects of human allergic disease. The scope of the journal encompasses all aspects of the genetic, molecular and inflammatory aspects of allergy. At the basic science level, this may include inflammatory cells, genetics of allergy, mediators of the allergic response (including cytokines and chemokines) and novel cell signaling mechanisms. It will also include new treatment strategies such as the use of monoclonal antibodies, cytokine inhibitors, immunomodulatory drugs and gene/molecular therapies. At present, there is no journal dedicated specifically to both the clinical and molecular aspects of allergic diseases. Moreover, journals that review allergic disease are available in most instances by subscription only, which can be expensive. In starting Clinical and Molecular Allergy, we hope to present timely reviews and mechanism-oriented reports that will open up new avenues for research and bring together research communities from across the globe. Reviews of evolving molecular diagnostic technology, molecular targets for therapy and new biotherapeutics will provide busy physicians and researchers across the globe a quick on-line resource that can be accessed readily. Clinical and Molecular Allergy will also serve as an educational resource for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are interested in allergic and immunological disease. Reviews of these areas will allow clinicians to learn and share their experiences and understanding of these advances. Moreover, this journal is Open Access, and the content is free and readily available, thereby allowing scientists, physicians and students from around the world to share in these exciting advances.
