The feature Rapid Communication of Novel Concepts in the journal Cardiovascular Diagnosis and Therapy is designed to provide a platform for the communication of such novel ideas. After a rapid review process, the editorial team will attempt to accompany the article by an authorative editorial, in order to outline the strengths and limitations of the concept. Fast on-line publication and distribution and feedback tools on the central web-site will allow initial communication and potential cooperation between investigators.
The first issue of the journal CDT is published (see content on website http://www.amepc.org/cdt/index), including a number of high-quality articles. The print issue will be available in December 2011.
The editorial team is working on the second issue, with a publication date in March 2012. While we already have a number of articles secured, there is still the chance for prospective authors to submit original or review articles with a deadline of Jan. 15 2012.
China is focusing its knowledge-based economic development efforts in the biomedical area. Chinese universities have long been highly centralized, but the government is attempting to break down bureaucratic barriers and provide greater incentives to support R&D and biotechnology commercialization. China’s National Development and Reform Commission initiated 20 venture capital funds in 2009, involving seven provincial governments. Biomedical innovation is a key target for these funds.
Another Chinese strategy involves encouraging the reverse migration of human capital from the United States. Beginning in the 1970s, thousands of native Chinese sought graduate degrees in the biomedical sciences in the U.S. In 2008, there were approximately 2,500 native Chinese life sciences faculty at U.S. universities, and 10 to 20 percent ofscientists at U.S. drug and biotech companies were native Chinese. China is targeting this diaspora of biomedical talent and providing opportunities that will encourage these workers to bring their skills and training home. Some have dubbed returning Chinese scientists “sea turtles.
FDA released a report containing immediate steps that can betaken to drive biomedical innovation, while improving the health of Americans.The report addresses concerns about the medical product development pipeline, one of the most pressing challenges facing the biomedical industries.
Release of the report, kicks off a new FDA-wide Innovation Initiative, which promises to redouble the agency’s efforts to encourage innovations that will promote public health as well as strengthen the American economy.
We are committed to continuing our dialogue with companies,innovators, patients, and other stakeholders to identify barriers to progress and better define what steps need to be taken to overcome any obstacles to innovation.

In a just published study in the International Journal of Cardiovascular Imaging (1), a group of authors from Mozambique, led by our editorial board member Dr. Ana Mocumbi (http://www.amepc.org/cdt/about/editorialTeam), examined the role of echocardiography in the management of endomyocardial fibrosis (EMF), which is a cardiomyopathy with high prevalence in sub-saharan Africa. In a small patient population, the authors demonstrate that most pathological abnormalities can be diagnosed by echocardiography allowing surgery in some cases.
While the study population is too small to justify definitive conclusions, the data demonstrates the importance for availability of echocardiography in endemic areas for EMF.
In a prior study, published in 2009 in the journal Circulation (2), some of the authors have described the role of echocardiography in the screening for rheumatic heart disease (RHD). In a large patient population of children from Mozambique, the authors describe that early case detection is vital in RHD in children to minimize the risk of advanced valvular heart disease. The data evaluated the currently utilized World Health Organization (WHO) criteria for echocardiographic diagnosis of subclinical RHD and conclude that adding morphological features to diagnostic criteria might have significant consequences in terms of case detection rates.

The journal Cardiovascular Diagnosis and Therapy (CDT) invites artists to submit artwork to our feature entitled Art and Medicine. We also encourage submission of manuscripts related to the role of art in medicine.
- Submission of artwork should include a high-resolution image of the work and a brief one-page description of the artist and the artwork including a ‘credit line’ (see examples on the website: http://www.amepc.org/index/index )
- Submission of artwork and manuscripts should follow the general guidelines of the journal, available on the website, http://www.amepc.org/cdt (Author Guidelines)
The primary goal of the journal CDT is to promote rapid exchange of scientific information related to cardiovascular care between clinicians and scientists worldwide and to become a globally respected source of up-to-date information about all aspects of Cardiovascular Diagnosis and Therapy. Art and Medicine will be a permanent feature of the journal.
The General Assembly in its resolution A/RES/65/238 decided that the high-level meeting of the General Assembly on the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases shall be held on 19 and 20 September 2011 in New York and that the high-level meeting shall address the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases worldwide, with a particular focus on developmental and other challenges and social and economic impacts, particularly for developing countries.

According to Prof. Michel Komajda, ESC President, "it has been a fantastic meeting with a record number of attending delegates and a tremendous amount of scientific news.”
The journal is encouraging potential authors to submit papers related to cardiovascular medicine and surgery by September 15th. These submissions will be considered for the inaugural issue of the journal. The best submissions will be published alongside a number of papers already promised by an international group of authors as follows:

'Traditional Chinese Medicine' and 'Modern Cardiovascular Care'
In modern China, 'traditional Chinese' medicine and 'modern high-tech' medical care co-exist. Many patient seek both treatments either at different times in their medical history or simultaneous.
