Apoptosis is a subscription-based electronic version of the print journal
of the same title. Full-text is available to subscribers as PDF files.

Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is a natural process by which damaged
or unwanted cells are dismantled in an orderly and non-traumatic fashion.
It is of critical importance in development, homeostasis and cell
population control. Although apoptosis was originally recognised and
defined in terms of the characteristic morphological changes displayed by
cells undergoing apoptosis, and contrasting these with those seen in cells
undergoing necrosis; current research is focused on molecular signalling
and genetic processes occurring in cells undergoing apoptosis.

Apoptosis is an international peer-reviewed publication devoted to the
rapid publication of innovative basic and clinically-oriented
investigations into apoptosis and programmed cell-death. Apoptosis aims to
stimulate both research on the basic mechanisms of apoptosis and on its
role in various human disease processes including: cancer, autoimmune
disease, viral infection, cardiovascular disease, Neurodegenerative
disorders, AIDS, osteoporosis and ageing. The Editor-in-Chief and the
Editorial Board recognize the need to encourage the development of
clinical therapies against apoptosis-related diseases.
