Academic journals are typically peer-reviewed journals that publish theoretical discussions and articles that critically review already published work. Academic journals serve as an important forum for researchers and academicians from where they can access important information about recent developments in their field.Academic journals are periodicals in which researchers publish their findings, mostly the recent ones.OMICS Group International Journals fall under the academic category as they strictly adhere to peer-review process and follow the format by publishing mostly the original work.
The role of translational research in current therapeutic implementations and public health applications is evolving in promising directions, particularly in association with novel biomarker discoveries. Translational medicine embodies multidisciplinary aspects ranging from basic science to drug discovery.Collaborative efforts between hospitals, academic institutions, and industrial research laboratories are inevitable for improving patient care and clinical outcomes.The development of specific biomarkers for companion diagnostic and prognostic applications and for predicting clinical outcomes is driving translational and personalized medicine.Translational research advances aim to detect ovarian cancer in early stages by monitoring
molecular changes that develop during onset of disease.Assays for identification and validation of early detection biomarkers can be performed on patient samples including blood, urine and other body fluids, and tissues.Patients are more willing to provide blood than tissue or other specimens for translational research. The availability of samples is critical to the translational research effort to evaluate these biomarkers for their utility in reducing the morbidity and mortality of ovarian cancer worldwide.
