Abstract

The purpose of this brief editorial is twofold. As the new editor-inchief of Journal of Clinical and Experimental Pathology I would like to introduce myself to our readers. I have been a professor of Pathology at The University of Georgia for many years. For long time I have worked in the vast area of growth factors, specifically, on the identification and characterization of Transforming Growth Factor e (TGFe), a member of the (pro)granulin family , and on characterization of avian isoforms of TGFβ. For the last 12 years I have worked on tendon diseases in domestic animals. Our laboratory has worked on enrofloxacin-induced changes in proteoglycan and glycosaminoglycans in avian and equine tendon cell cultures . Another major project in our laboratory is biochemical characterization and elucidation of pathogenesis of an equine disease leading to pain and lameness in certain horses, so called degenerative suspensory ligament desmitis. Until recently this disorder was considered a disease of collagen affecting exclusively so call suspensory ligaments of equine legs. However, we have determined that the primary defect is in processing of proteoglycans which accumulate in tissues and organs with high content of connective tissues.
