Advances in Neuroimmune Biology
This journal will publish review articles and original research that deal with a novel and very important area of biology. The ultimate objective is to understand the integrative regulation of higher organisms in their entire complexity. It has been firmly established already that the Nervous, Endocrine and Immune systems form a regulatory network, a Super-System, which governs all events from conception till death in higher animals and in man, including physiological and pathophysiological processes.
It follows from the above definition that a review journal covering this area of Biomedicine must operate in a “multidisciplinary” fashion. The rapidly accumulating and fragmented information available today will be collected, organized and interpreted; the elements, compounds, cells and tissues will be fitted into living organisms and our knowledge of the biology of such higher organisms will be enhanced. The rules of physiological interactions during homeostasis must be understood and also the regulatory interactions in diseases must be followed, which operate during pathophysiological conditions (allostasis).
One might raise the objection that Advances in Neuroimmune Biology aspire for too much and eventually will catch very little. This is why the editors have to examine carefully each topic and project. Yes, this science is multi-disciplinary, but they restrict themselves to study integrative mechanisms/pathways exclusively. If a topic/project does not deal with the subject area in an integrative manner, it will not be considered for publication.
A panel of outstanding scientists have given their support to this proposal and agreed to serve on the Editorial Board. The editors will review papers, will be expected to contribute articles, plan actively and edit certain issues, and will also be active in soliciting new articles from fellow scientists.
The primary audience will be scientists working in physiology, endocrinology, immunology, pathology, medicine and in similar areas of veterinary medicine and of biology. Zoologists should also be interested as lower animals also have integrative coordinating mechanisms to organize their biology. The secondary audience would come from doctors of medicine and veterinary medicine, practicing biologists, etc. At a certain level parents, even animal breeders, and the general public should also be interested. Amongst the problems this journal will present are the stress response and its biological significance. These questions have fundamental importance to modern society and to proper health care. Clearly, the systematic presentation of Neuroimmune Biology is very much in need in modern societies.

11 Oct 2012 - Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that is associated with emotions, movement, and the brain’s pleasure and reward system. In the current issue of Advances in Neuroimmune Biology, investigators provide a broad overview of the direct and indirect role of dopamine in modulating the immune system and discuss how recent research has opened up new possibilities for treating diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, multiple sclerosis or even the autoimmune disorders....
21 Mar 2012 - Fertility problems, recurrent miscarriages, and pregnancy complications can occur when maternal immunological tolerance of the fetus is impaired. Gérard Chaouat and colleagues from Inserm et Assistance Publique et Université Paris Sud Orsay, Hopital Antoine Bèclère, Clamart Cedex, France (now in Hopital Saint Louis, Paris), trace the evolution of the science of reproductive immunology to show how the current understanding of maternal-fetal tolerance/dialogue has developed, and its implications for the treatment of infertility disorders. Their study appears in a topical issue of Advances in Neuroimmune Biology on maternal-fetal interactions....
