Elsevier , a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and services, announces the launch of BBA Clinical , the
first full open access journal within the Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA)
journal series. BBA Clinical will focus on translating molecular insights into
clinical research.

BBA Clinical is a biomedical journal dedicated to publishing research on the
molecular basis of human diseases, as well as presenting findings from
clinical trials that target biochemical pathways and processes. All articles
in BBA Clinical describe, in part or entirely, studies using human patient
samples or human cohorts. Clinical areas of particular interest include aging,
cancer, cardiovascular-, metabolic-, neurological-, and immunological
diseases; the interactions that may occur among these different diseases and
conditions; and studies that examine their early or pre-symptomatic
states.Cross-sectional and prospective studies from well-established cohorts,
and studies involving imaging methodologies, are particularly encouraged for

"The journal provides a new forum for insights concerning the biochemical
mechanisms related to diagnosis, progression, and treatment of a wide range of
human diseases," said BBA Clinical Executive Editor, Jeffrey N. Keller from
Pennington Biomedical Research Center, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. "BBA Clinical
will offer not just a useful forum for clinical research today, but it is
designed to be a prominent contributor to the larger overall body of clinical
advancements far into the future."
