A special section titled “Therapeutic Approaches to Treat Disorders of the Genitourinary and Gastrointestinal Tracts” is being planned for publication in the August 2024 issue of The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics.

This special section will feature research elucidating pathophysiological mechanisms of genitourinary (GU) and gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, aimed at identifying clinical biomarkers, developing diagnostic tests and evaluating the latest therapeutic approaches to minimize symptoms and disease progression in affected patients. Original clinical, basic science and translational research pertaining to pharmacological, immunologic, hormonal, stem cell and other therapeutic approaches to treat disorders of the GI and GU tracts will be considered for publication.

Full-length original research manuscripts describing repurposed or innovative drug interventions, as well as evaluation of existing treatments, drug delivery systems and improved therapeutics for GU and GI disorders, are especially welcome. Journal editors highly encourage research papers describing innovative models/mechanisms to test the latest therapeutic interventions, sex and age differences and preclinical/clinical evaluation of lead compounds. Short research reports on novel mechanisms, signaling pathways and therapeutic targets for understanding the pathophysiology of GI and GU diseases are also considered. Original articles addressing any aspect of the aforementioned topics will be considered. “Expert opinion” reports and mini-reviews on the latest advances in GU and GI pharmacology are also encouraged.

Please send a pre-submission inquiry including title, author information, abstract and significance statement to The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics prior to full submission. The guest editors, Dr. Anna Malykhina and/or Dr. Luke Grundy, will review these inquiries, respond to the authors' comments, and assess whether final approval will be granted for a full submission. There are no submission fees or page charges for publishing in this special issue and the accepted manuscript version is published immediately online.

All submissions must refer to the journal’s Instructions to Authors, and the submission deadline is December 19, 2023.
