Preparing manuscript for submission
Contributors should prepare their manuscripts in accordance with the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals. Use Système International (SI) measurements only. Use non-proprietary (i.e. generic) drug names, unless the specific trade name of a drug is directly relevant to the discussion. Avoid unnecessary abbreviations. Single-space the text throughout. This includes the title page, abstract, text, acknowledgments, references, tables and figure legends. Use Times New Romans and a 12-point font size.
On the title page DO NOT include the names and affiliations of authors. Authors' full address, phone and fax numbers and e-mail address must be provided during submission process by corresponding author. In addition to full title, a short title not more than 60 characters is appreciated. Include a structured abstract of no more than 250 words. A list of three to five keywords must be given, and placed after the Abstract.
For experimental investigations of human or animal subjects, state in the Methods section of the manuscript that an appropriate institutional review board approved the project. Provide the approval numbers as necessary. For investigations of human subjects, state in the Methods section the manner in which informed consent was obtained.
Number the references in the order that they appear in the text of the manuscript. When listing references, follow the uniform requirements style (the Vancouver style) that is based largely on an ANSI standard style adapted by the NLM for its databases (e.g., MEDLINE). Reference numbers should be placed in square brackets [ ] throughout the text, and placed before the punctuation; for example , [2, 3] or [1-3], and all the references should be listed separately and as the last section at the end of the manuscript.
Tables should be inserted into the main text, and numbers and titles must be supplied for all tables. Include legends for all tables. The legends should be prepared as a separate paragraph of the main text and placed in the main text before a table. All table columns should have an explanatory heading. Tables should present new information rather than duplicating what is in the text. Readers should be able to interpret the table without reference to the text. Please supply editable files. All tables should be numbered in the order of their citation in the text.

Figures should be saved as TIFF, PostScript or EPS files. We recommend that you send your image files already in the size you wish them to be published. All figures should be numbered in the order of their citation in the text. Include legends for all figures, schemes and illustrations. The legends should be prepared as a separate paragraph of the main text and placed in the main text after a figure, scheme or an illustration. Full color graphics will be published free of charge.
