The Clinical Pathology, Physiology and Immunology considers all sound science research study types in which laboratory analysis and the use of biomarkers have a major role in enhancing our understanding of animal health. This section is open to any animal species and comparative studies are also considered. Studies must be scientifically valid; for research articles this includes a scientifically sound research question, the use of suitable methods and analysis, and following community-agreed standards relevant to the research field.
The main topics covered in this section include:
- Laboratory assays and methods validation
- Laboratory methods applied to study pathophysological changes in disease
- Clinical Biochemistry
- Endocrinology Tests
- Immunological Assays
- Development and validation of new biomarkers including proteomic studies
