Special Issue "Pediatric Diseases"
A special issue of Diseases (ISSN 2079-9721).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2018)
There is a growing interest in the re-emergence of diseases that impact pediatric demographics. While major strides have been made in the field of childhood cancers, there are still more questions than answers. In addition, the resistance to childhood vaccinations fueled by misinformation has allowed infectious diseases to resurface in developed nations. Meanwhile, climate change and other destabilizing factors are shifting vector populations and driving the emergence of new disease. In this special issue of Diseases, we invite papers related to detection, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of human pediatric diseases. Papers related to molecular mechanisms, epidemiology,immunology, and public health initiatives associated with pediatric diseases are also encouraged.Dr. Mark A. Brown
