Special Issue in Diagnostics: Salivary Biomarkers and Their Application to Diagnosis and Monitoring Human Diseases
Neuro-psychiatric disorders are an important cause of poor quality of life, disability, and premature mortality. Globally, the burden of these disorders has increased substantially over the past 25 years, due of expanding population numbers and aging, despite substantial decreases in mortality rates. The pathophysiological bases of these disorders show continuous challenges, and different aspects within the same disorder appear quickly in the field of biomedical sciences. The complexity of these disorders needs a constant update on biomarkers useful for diagnosing, for monitoring the efficicacy of tratments and interventions and to shed new lights on their pathophysiology.
This Special Issue wishes to shed new light on this exciting and insightful field of research from a multidisciplinary perspective. This Special Issue "Biomarkers in Neuropsychiatric Disorders" reflects the interplay between neurological and psychiatric sciences, with other health sciences at the leading edge of this growing research field, which intensively suggest new opportunities for improving diagnosis and care, or to prevent adverse outcomes. Welcome to contribute to this special issue.
