Adaptive Medicine

Adaptive Medicine, is a blind peer-reviewed journal, open access quarterly journal. This journal has a good editorial staff and is financially supported by the Society of Adaptive Science in Taiwan, the Taiwan Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism, and MacKay Junior College of Medicine, Nursing, and Management. Adaptive Medicine is an international academic journal that disseminates novel knowledge in adaptive changes occurring in response to different environmental factors, exercise training, hypoxia, temperature change, microgravity, and various pathological conditions or drug administration. Its principle aim is to further the understanding of the basic mechanisms of adaptations at molecular, cellular, and physiological levels as well as at the level of complex interactions responsible for the integrated control of body functions. Another objective consists in the better understanding of dismissed adaptations responsible for disease development. Finally, studies of different cross-adaptations continue to receive increasing attention as it was demonstrated that repeated exposure to specific stress stimuli may have applications in the treatment and prophylaxis of different diseases. These observations lead to the recognition of a new discipline of adaptive medicine which offers promise for therapeutic strategies in both experimental and clinical pathology.
