Immune Mechanisms in Fish
Created 22 January 2015
The Special Issue "
Immune Mechanisms in Fish
" is available at http://www.mdpi.com/journal/biology/special_issues/immune-fish.
Fish immunity studies are at a pivotal point. Genomes of zebrafish and fugu have been examined in detail, those of rainbow trout, cod and coelacanths have recently been released, allowing for comparative studies revealing key evolutionary differences, such as lobe-finned fishes more closely resembling tetrapods or the lack of major histocompatibility class II and associated accessory genes in cod. In addition, novel technologies such as RNAseq have permitted large scale views of gene regulation. Functional studies in fish have provided novel regulatory and effector mechanisms that, upon subsequent study, are also present in mammals, such as transferrin activation of macrophages and phagocytic B cells. With this basis, future functional studies will provide even deeper insights into both mechanisms of fish immunity and the evolution of immune systems. For this special issue, we will review the state of the art in key areas of fish immunity as a basis for future studies.

Journal of International Business Ethics

Journal of International Business Ethics
is the only English language journal, which caters specifically to scholars, policy-makers and business practitioners interested in the emerging field of International Business Ethics, published biannually in the United States and Mainland China by the Center for International Business Ethics (CIBE) and The American Scholars Press. The journal creates a platform for sharing original research, innovative ideas, and forging cooperation on business ethics issues, particularly as they apply within cross-culturalcontext.
Call for Papers
The Journal of International Business Ethics currently welcomes submissions of original unpublished articles in English on all aspects of International Business Ethics.
All submissions should be sent electronically to
. We accept the following:
• Regular articles (up to 8,000 words including notes and references): in-depth applied or theoretical pieces combining original research with strong analytical argument
• Book reviews (1000-2000 words)
• Research reports (up to 4,000 words including notes and references): shorter reports outlining primary research and empirical findings.
All submissions should conform to the mission of the Journal. It is important to note that because of our diverse readership, spanning theoretical and applied fields not to mention Eastern and Western cultures, it is important that, no matter the specific issue or context under discussion, the relevance of the argument to the broader understanding of Business Ethics internationally should be clear. Similarly, specific technical terms and concepts should always be defined.
The review process may take up to 8 weeks to conclude and is done in a blind-review format. The earlier your paper is received the sooner it will be turned over to our reviewing department
Recent CMV Research
Samanta La Russa
Created 17 November 2014
In developed countries, human cytomegalovirus (CMV) is the major infectious cause of congenital birth defects including microcephaly, mental retardation, sensorineural hearing loss, and intrauterine growth restriction. Nonetheless, because of the potential for teratogenicity and toxic effects, no prenatal therapeutic treatment is currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration for congenital CMV infection. Therefore there is great interest in understanding CMV growth and blocking or altogether preventing CMV infection.
In the “Recent CMV Research” special issue in Viruses, of particular interest to families and caregivers affected by CMV diseases are several papers: addressing prevention of CMV infection of trophoblast cells (Zydek et al., 2014), CMV latency (Sinclair and Reeves, 2013), as well as of CMV lung infections in non-HIV infected children (Restrepo-Gualteros et al., 2014). Our ability to enhance immune responses for controlling CMV infection (Hanley and Bollard, 2014) and new strategies for CMV vaccine development guided by non-human primate studies (Deere and Barry, 2014) are discussed in two excellent reviews. Several articles address the CMV manipulation of the immune system, both innate and adaptive immune responses (Stevenson et al., 2014, Fink et al, 2013, 2014, Raghavan et al., 2014) and of DNA damage responses (E and Kowalik, 2014; Kulkarni and Fortunato, 2014). Please find all the papers in this special issue in the ‘Bibliography’ section.
It is my hope that this special issue provides a valuable resource for the families and investigators in the CMV field. I would like to thank all the colleagues who contributed papers to this Special Issue and invite discussions on these papers. In fact the publisher selected two of the papers from this special issue (Zydek et al., 2014; Deere and Barry, 2014) to highlight in the MDPI Magazine.

Brain metastasis is the stage of cancer resulting from cancer cell colonization of the brain. Brain metastasis represents a compendium of devastating diseases arising from several cancer types since mostly fatal because of the extremely poor prognosis when compared to primary cancers treatment. Furthermore, mechanisms underlying brain metastasis remain largely unknown.
To assess, report, and discuss new discoveries in the biology, pathology and treatment of brain metastasis, we launched the Special Issue "Brain Metastasis" in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences in 2012, having continued it in 2014. Under the leadership of Professor Dario Marchetti (Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, USA) as our Guest Editor, this Special Issue has attracted a great interest from active researchers and scholars in the field, with 25 published manuscripts at highest scientific level. All papers can be accessed freely online. This open discussion group has been established as a forum to further exchange ideas and challenges facing the field, and to provide comments on "Brain Metastasis".
On behalf of our Guest Editor, Professor Dario Marchetti, we invite you to join and follow this discussion group. All comments, questions, files and information will be openly shared within the online group. We hope that this platform will facilitate further stimulating discussions on this important topic.
