Pathology journals journal of cellular and molecular pathology liver cancer blood test

‘Journal of Cellular Molecular Pathology’ aims to provide a common platform for Medical Practitioners, Pathologists and Researchers to discuss and focus about various diseases and ailments with emphasis on cellular and/or molecular alterations and their mechanisms. The journal seeks high quality papers on scientific advances in various fields like Cytology, Cellular injury, Cell receptors, Carcinogenesis, Disease Markers, Diagnostic Pathology, Immunopathology, Molecular Genetics, Forensic and legal pathology, hematology, microbiology, chemical pathology, Molecular Pathology. The Journal would publish peer-reviewed original research papers, case reports, letters to the editor, short communications, review articles, critiques, controversies, methods, technical notes, case studies and articles of special nature on the above mentioned topics.

Pathology is a branch of medical science primarily concerning the examination of organs, tissues, and bodily fluids in order to make a diagnosis of disease. The main branches of pathology are clinical pathology, anatomical pathology or a combination of the two, referred to as general pathology.

Cytopathology is a diagnostic technique that examines cells from various body sites to determine the cause or the nature of disease. The first cytopathology test developed was the Pap test which has been widely utilized in the last 50 years for screening and diagnosing of cervical cancer and its precursors. The Pap test is considered the most successful screening test in medical history.

A broadest definition of molecular pathology is the study of molecules in a disease state. In this context, the molecules studied are DNA, RNA and/or protein. Portions of DNA (known as genes) act as templates for the production of RNA which in turn acts as a template for the production of protein. Molecular pathology tests may look for the presence or absence of protein or RNA, or for an increase or decrease in the amount of these molecules. Other molecular pathology tests look for rearrangements of large portions of DNA (these rearrangments are known as translocations) or for specific changes to the composition of genes (these changes are known as mutations).

The pathogenesis of a disease is the biological mechanism (or mechanisms) that lead to the diseased state. The term can also describe the origin and development of the disease, and whether it is acute, chronic, or recurrent. The word comes from the Greek pathos (disease) and genesis (creation).

Anatomical Pathology is that branch of medicine concerned with the study of the morphologic aspects of disease and includes subspecialties that may be oriented towards specific organ systems, (for example, gynecological pathology, dermatopathology, gastrointestinal pathology, cardiovascular pathology, respiratory pathology, musculoskeletal pathology, renal pathology, genito-urinary pathology, endocrine pathology, ophthalmic pathology, E.N.T. pathology, neuropathology), certain laboratory methods (for example, cytopathology, immunopathology, electron microscopy), or certain types of clinical cases (for example, pediatric pathology, forensic pathology).

Cell and Tissue Science is devoted to original research on the organization of cells, their components and extracellular products, at all levels including the grouping and interrelations of cells, in tissues and organs. Emphasis is placed on cell biological aspects of structure, function and behaviour of cells, and primarily morphological accounts must include substantially new information of general interest.

Molecular genetics is the field of biology and genetics that studies the structure and function of genes at a molecular level. Molecular genetics employs the methods of genetics and molecular biology to elucidate molecular function and interactions among genes.

Diagnostic Pathology covers all aspects of surgical pathology, including classic diagnostic pathology, prognosis-related diagnosis (tumor stages, prognosis markers, such as MIB-percentage, hormone receptors, etc.), and therapy-related findings. And also technological aspects of pathology, including molecular biology techniques, morphometry aspects (stereology, DNA analysis, syntactic structure analysis), communication aspects (telecommunication, virtual microscopy, virtual pathology institutions, etc.).
