Journal of Probiotics & Health is one of the top leading journals in biomedical engineering which publishes novel research articles after rigorous peer-review process by at least 2 expert reviewers of the associated fields.
Probiotics and health are interesting fields which are concerned with the application of Aging, Neural mechanism, Probiotics, Prebiotics, Dietary component, Synbiotics, Host Immune System, Food chemistry. It involves developing devices and procedures that solve medical and health-related problems by combining their knowledge of biology and medicine with engineering principles and practices. Probiotics and health requires the analytical tools and broad physical knowledge of modern engineering and science, fundamental understanding of the biological or physiological system, and familiarity with recent technological breakthroughs.
Inflammatory bowel diseases include ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohnâs disease (CD). The etiology of IBD is not fully understood and is influenced by environmental, genetic and immunological factors. The geographic variation of IBD is well known. The highest prevalence rates are reported in North America and Northern Europe, whereas the prevalence rates are much lower in eastern European and Asian populations. It has been shown that higher incidence rates of IBD are associated with westernization. People who immigrate to westernized countries have a higher risk for developing IBD. The prevalence of IBD is also different among ethnic groups of immigrant populations. Nguyen et al. showed a higher prevalence of IBD in Non-Hispanic whites compared with Non-Hispanic blacks. The same study showed a higher ratio of IBD hospitalizations and IBDrelated mortality in Non-Hispanic blacks compared with Non-Hispanic whites. This suggests a different IBD phenotype among ethnic groups. "Bouhadan S, Ethnic Differences in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases"
OMICS is devoted to the prompt publication of original findings of the highest scientific priority and value that provide novel mechanistic insights, represent a clear advance over previous Studies and have the potential to generate exciting future research.
