Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

The diagnosis of non-communicable diseases typically involves a comprehensive approach that combines medical history, physical examination, laboratory tests, and imaging studies. Biomarker detection has emerged as a valuable diagnostic tool for specific diseases, but precise and rapid quantification of disease-specific biomarkers requires analytical methods that can enable fast sampling and preconcentration from sample matrices. Therefore, solid-phase extraction and micro-extraction techniques are gaining popularity in medical diagnosis due to their unique advantages, including integrated sampling, extraction, and analysis by GC-MS or LC-MS. This Special Issue focuses on the latest discoveries in the field of non-communicable disease diagnosis and aims to bring together clinical and primary researchers to submit interdisciplinary works on cutting-edge techniques, including sample preparation techniques and chromatography methods. The topic covers the latest progress in the development of point-of-care tests, molecular diagnostic tests, animal models for diseases, appropriate dosages and formulations, as well as artificial intelligence and machine learning predictive tools/models for the following diseases (but not limited to): 1. COPD 2. Stroke 3. Alzheimer's disease 4. Liver disease 5. Chronic kidney disease 6. Sickle cell disease/thalassemia 7. Cancer—breast, cervix, oral, and lung 8. Diabetes 9. Cardiovascular disease.
