Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Among OMICs sciences, Metabonomics is newer, its aim is to discover metabolic patterns associated with the biochemical status of live systems. Thus, metabonomics basic principle is homeostatic perturbation profile identification associated with external agent action. Over the last 25 years, 1H NMR-based metabonomics/metabolomics assays have been developed to diagnose and/or prognose various diseases. Metabolomics is an efficient strategy to study the metabolic pathways from patients’ endogenous metabolites pattern, as well as to make early diagnosis in a minimally invasive or non-invasive way.

In this special issue, it is aimed to bring together research using 1H NMR-based metabonomics/metabolomics to investigate the homeostatic response to the action of different pathogenic agents and/or drugs in pharmacodynamic studies. This issue will present the main advances and perspectives on metabonomics use in human health care. For this issue, 1H NMR-based metabonomics to pulmonary diseases investigations, oncological staging, human reproduction studies, gastroenterological studies, heart diseases evaluate, pharmacodynamics studies, among others will be considered.
