Progress in Preventive Medicine (PROGPREVMED) is an open access, peer reviewed journal which aims to publish high quality research that contributes to implementing preventive, personalized, predictive and participatory (P4) medicine. P4 medicine represents a move from models of reacting to illness to maintaining health and a pro-active health care approach; prolonging the healthspan is a primary goal of this new model.
PROGPREVMED is dedicated to highlighting high-quality articles about P4 medicine with a focus on chronic diseases (i.e., lifestyle-related diseases, non-communicable diseases, diseases of civilization) and ageing across the lifespan. The Journal is a cross-discipline research platform to advance the science and clinical practice around implementing P4 medicine to address complex chronic diseases.
PROGPREVMED will publish high-quality original articles, commissioned reviews, commentaries, brief communications, and letters to the Editor. The Journal follows a translational approach ‘From Cell to Community’ – addressing and including all aspects from basic research, to clinical medicine to public health with a focus on systems-based and interdisciplinary approaches.
PROGPREVMED is an official journal of:
- the European Society of Preventive Medicine
- the European Institute for Systems Biology and Medicine
