Aims & Scope

This journal is devoted to full-length/ mini reviews and original articles of experimental and clinical studies in the field of endocrine, metabolic, and immune disorders. Specific emphasis is placed on humoral and cellular targets for natural, synthetic, and genetically engineered drugs that enhance or impair endocrine, metabolic, and immune parameters and functions. Moreover, the topics related to the effects of food components and/or nutraceuticals on the endocrine-metabolic-immune axis and on microbioma composition are welcome.
