Special Issue tentative title: "New trends in Precision Medicine, Dentistry and Oral Health".
Precision medicine has emerged as a powerful model that focuses on how biomolecular factors can influence individual responses to different medications/therapies affecting drug efficacy, side effects and adverse events related to therapy. The long-term goal of the research being conducted is the identification of responders and non-responders to therapy and, thus, the avoidance of adverse events and the optimization of drug/therapeutic doses.
Moreover, dentistry—and in particular, oral health—is recognized by the WHO as a significant part of the Global Oral Health Program, having a vital impact on daily life and overall health, and has important implications for the clinical practice of medicine and dental research. Oral health maintenance—by means of a diagnostic, rehabilitative, therapeutic or surgical approach—is an integral part of general human health and well-being.
This Special Issue seeks research papers on various aspects related to the emerging field of precision medicine, dentistry and oral health, covering different aspects of the basics of translational research, applied biology and health promotion.
We especially encourage the submission of interdisciplinary work and multi-country collaborative research. We welcome submissions of original research papers using different study designs and critical and relevant reviews, including systematic reviews and meta-analyses, methodological papers, and manuscripts that emphasize theoretical content.
