Understanding Rare Diseases for Implementing Personalized Medicine and Addressing Sustainable Development Goal 3

The resolution adopted by general assembly of United Nations on 16th December 2021 has made the rights protection, society integration, well-being and health of persons living with a rare disease as one the key priorities for reaching the Sustainable Development Goals 3 (SDG3). There are approximately 300 million persons living with a rare disease worldwide, many of whom are children.

The World Health Organization estimates that 10 out of every 1000 individuals are impacted by rare monogenic diseases. So far, for many of these rare diseases, there is still some trouble in providing definitive diagnoses and treatment options. Improvement in the search for mutations using cutting-edge sequencing technology and the study of mutations compelling in silico, in vitro and in vivo modelling approaches are essential for posing the right diagnosis, therapeutic strategies and for prescribing the adequate medicine. This research will enable the implementation of personalized medicine, which will give a better chance to manage and treat the disorders that previously meant a death sentence.

In this Article Collection, All Life addresses SDG3: Good Health and Well-Being through innovative open scientific research addressing genetic diseases or new methods of personalized medicine under the sections “Pharmacology & Pharmaceutics ”, “Computational Life Sciences, Bioinformatics & System Biology”, and “Epidemiology, Genetics & Genomics”. This Article Collection will accept original research articles, reviews, short communications, data notes, and commentaries on topics including, but not limited to:

  1. Advances in sequencing technologies and diagnosis
  2. Identification of novel genetic syndrome
  3. Unravelling the diseases mechanisms using “omics” approaches
  4. Computational modelling in mutation effects
  5. Novel computational programs and methods
  6. Statistics used in the field of epidemiology and genetics
  7. Novel mathematical models for predicting prognosis and complications
  8. Animal and cellular models of rare diseases
  9. Large-scale studies providing new insight in rare disease diagnosis, disease mechanism, and treatment strategies
  10. Current and new drugs treating rare diseases

­­All manuscripts submitted to this Article Collection will undergo a full peer-review; the Guest Advisor for this Collection will not be handling the manuscripts (unless they are an Editorial Board member).
