International Journal launched to address regional issues on diabetes and metabolic syndrome

Singapore, November 17, 2005 Elsevier, the world-leading scientific and medical publisher, has announced a new publishing partnership with Diabetes India (DI) and the launch of a new journal, Diabetes Research & Metabolic Syndrome in June 2006. Diabetes Research & Metabolic Syndrome will cover two main clinical areas--diabetes and metabolic syndrome focusing on both vascular damage causes and the glucose centered disease approach.

Editor of Diabetes Research & Metabolic Syndrome, Professor Philip Home noted, "Metabolic Syndrome is of particular interest from a global perspective and this gives Diabetes Research & Metabolic Syndrome its raison d'etre in an era of proliferating specialist journals in the field of diabetes. The journal is timely and should rapidly become a force in the world of cardiovascular prevention."

"Despite the growing importance of diabetes and the metabolic syndrome worldwide, only a few medical journals are actually dedicated to these diseases," explained Co-Editor, Professor Anoop Misra further, "We will focus on issues relating to these diseases in South Asia, China, Africa and the Middle East where 60 to 70% of the world population and diabetes patients reside--and which are sparsely represented in the mainstream diabetes journals. I am thrilled to be working with the editorial board whose members represent global leadership in diabetes and metabolic disorders, from both developed and developing countries."
