1.  Expert consensus on acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in the People’s Republic of China 
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common disease that severely threatens human health. Acute exacerbation of COPD (AECOPD) is a major cause of disease progression and death, and causes huge medical expenditures. This consensus statement represents a description of clinical features of AECOPD in the People’s Republic of China and a set of recommendations. It is intended to provide clinical guidelines for community physicians, pulmonologists and other health care providers for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of AECOPD.

14.  Understanding IFNλ in rheumatoid arthritis 
Unraveling the mechanisms underlying the inflammatory response in rheumatoid arthritis is crucial in order to better understand the disease and to develop novel therapeutic approaches. Although the effect of type I interferons on fibroblasts and in the context of rheumatoid arthritis has been described for some time, little is known on the effects of the type III interferons, also known as IFNλ. In a previous issue, Xu and colleagues demonstrate that one of the members of the IFNλ family, IFNλ1, enhances Toll-like receptor expression and consequently promotes the production of proinflammatory cytokines known to be involved in initiating and maintaining the inflammatory responses in rheumatoid arthritis.

21.  Nanoinformatics for biomedicine: emerging approaches and applications 
This special issue on nanoinformatics for biomedicine is a collection of recent papers from the 2012 IEEE Workshop on Nanoinformatics for Biomedicine (NanoInfo 2012) and other work in the area. These papers illustrate different aspects of nanoinformatics to support biomedical research and to advance knowledge on nanomaterial–biological interactions. The topics covered include data curation, data standards, data mining and predictive modeling, machine learning, and translational research. The objectives of this special issue are multifold: (1) to bring together and showcase some of the latest research results in the field; (2) to introduce some useful repositories, systems, and analysis tools; and (3) to stimulate more research activities in the field.

23.  Targeted therapy: tailoring cancer treatment 
Chinese Journal of Cancer  2013;32(7):363-364.
Targeted therapies include small-molecule inhibitors and monoclonal antibodies, have made treatment more tumor-specific and less toxic, and have opened new possibilities for tailoring cancer treatment. Nevertheless, there remain several challenges to targeted therapies, including molecular identification, drug resistance, and exploring reliable biomarkers. Here, we present several selected signaling pathways and molecular targets involved in human cancers including Aurora kinases, PI3K/mTOR signaling, FOXO-FOXM1 axis, and MDM2/MDM4-p53 interaction. Understanding the molecular mechanisms for tumorigenesis and development of drug resistance will provide new insights into drug discovery and design of therapeutic strategies for targeted therapies.
