ABBREVIATIONS. At the first use of any abbreviations (acronyms), they should be preceded by the full term they represent.

DRUG NAMES. As a general rule, generic names should be used. When proprietary brands are used in research, include the brand name in parentheses in the "Materials and Methods" section.

UNITS OF MEASUREMENT. In the manuscript, wherever units of measurement are used, they will be expressed in the international system. Temperatures should be given in degrees Celsius. Blood pressure should be given in mm Hg. The results of the clinical laboratory tests will be expressed in terms of the International System of Units (ISU).

PERMISSIONS. The authors take full responsibility both for the originality of materials and for respecting the rules of copyright trespassing and the international ethical standards.

EVALUATION OF MANUSCRIPTS. Manuscripts are accepted for consideration only if no parts of the manuscript (including tables, figures, photos or legends) have been or will be published or submitted elsewhere. The journal discourages the submission of more than one article dealing with related aspects of the same study. Manuscripts are scientifically examined by the editorial staff and could be sent to external reviewers. Decisions about potentially acceptable manuscripts may take longer. The authors will be sent an e-mail containing result of the manuscript evaluation.
