On the broad field of clinical cachexia, sarcopenia and muscle research

Tobias Daniel Trippel, Nicole Ebner, Goran Loncar, Stephan von Haehling

Abstract


The past months have brought an interesting array of international submissions ranging from prognostic implications of body mass index and tissue loss in cancer to chronic kidney disease to this journal. Manuscripts on imaging or biomarkers aspects, among others, draw a heterogeneous picture of clinical reports in the field. Yet, upon completion of JCSM Clinical Reports’ Issue 1, Volume 2 we are delighted to display the rapid progress this editorial project takes on the large topic of cachexia, sarcopenia and muscle research. Coherently, we follow our stringent editorial path and hope to consider and integrate a ‘broad field’ from a clinical point of view.
