About this Research Topic
This research topic will focus on novel biomarkers for clinical and molecular stratification of organ involvement in rheumatic diseases that can be used for early diagnosis/prediction or precise treatment of organ involvement in rheumatic diseases. We welcome submissions of Original Research, Reviews, Clinical Trials, Meta-Analysis or Systemic Reviews, Case series and Short Reports, on the subtopics of the following, but are not limited to:
● Novel clinical biomarker screening and validation for prediction, diagnosis and precise treatment of organ involvement in rheumatic diseases.
● Bioinformatics-based predictive models for the prediction and early diagnosis of organ damage development of various rheumatic diseases including autoimmune and inflammatory conditions.
● Imaging biomarkers that could be utilized for the identification of diagnosis, treatment decision, and progression surveillance of organ involvement in various rheumatic diseases.
● The pre-clinical and clinical study of precise therapeutical strategies for the treatment of organ damage in rheumatic diseases based on clinical and molecular stratification of rheumatic diseases.
Keywords: rheumatic disease, organ involvement, biomarker, diagnosis, treatment, stratification
