Biosensors for Detecting Imbalances of Life Systems: Role of Materials and Methods in Improved Outcome

Special issue on Biosensors: materials and methods
Lead 20 program

Any deviation or imbalance from homeostatic state of steady internal physical and chemical conditions in living systems, generally falls under category of disease. Chances of bringing them back to normalcy or closer to healthier state with therapeutic interventions are found to be more successful when they are applied at very early stage. Biosensing has emerged as a process to achieve early detection of deviations in such homeostatic states via evaluation of physiological, chemical, or biomolecular parameters in the subjects. The two main components on which efficiency of biosensors rely are materials used as platform technology and methods of detection used for the task. In this issue we will be assembling recent advancements in the field of Biosensors in terms of used materials and methods in achieving high sensitivity, specificity and predictability in form of original research.

Immunoendocrine regulation of energy homeostasis and male reproduction

Male reproduction and its intricate neuroimmunoendocrine regulations open a wide scope of scientific interventions. Male infertility, being responsible for about half of the overall global infertility cases, represents a complex pathophysiological mechanism. Crosstalk among the endogenous immune and endocrine mediators may affect male gonadal functions. Since male reproduction is fine-tuned by orchestrated regulation of reproductive hormones and immune regulators, a better understanding of these chemical regulations will potentiate further research in this direction.

This issue aims to summarize the current knowledge on the hormonal and immunological regulations of male reproductive functions in physiological and pathophysiological conditions of male reproduction.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Energy homeostasis  and male reproduction
  • Immunoendocrine regulation of male reproductive functions
  • Adipokines and energy metabolism in male fertility
  • Obesity and male infertility: energy imbalance to inflammation
  • Endocrine regulation of epigenetics of reproductive tract inflammation
  • Altered energy metabolism and immune regulation in aged men
