About the Journal

The Journal of Health and Translational Medicine (JUMMEC) was founded in 1996. When JUMMEC (abbreviated for "Journal of University of Malaya Medical Centre") was first conceived, it was only publishing research findings that had been conducted in University of Malaya Medical Centre. Over the next few years, this journal grew in function and rapidly became popular amongst the local universities. It was not long thereafter that this journal began to gain interest by the global research community. In 2012, it was decided that a change in the journal name had to be made in order to reflect the international participations to this journal. However, we have never deviated from our primary aim, which is to facilitate the exchange of ideas, techniques and information among all members of the medical health practitioners and scientists alike.

Topics covered include: All aspect of medicine, medical systems and management; surgical and medicinal procedures; epidemiological studies; surgery and procedures (of all tissues); resuscitation; biomechanics; rehabilitation; basic science of local and systemic response related to the medical sciences; fundamental research of all types provided it is related to medical sciences; cell, proteins and gene related research; all branches of medicine which may include (but not limited to) anaesthesia, radiology, surgery, orthopaedics, ortholaryngiology etc. Regular features include: original research papers; review articles and case reports.

Letters that comment on an article previously published in JUMMEC are particularly encouraged, and the authors will be given the opportunity to respond. Please submit letters to the editor by e-mail where possible to email: jummec@um.edu.my


Issues are published BIANNUALLY in June and December every year.

NOTE: As of September 2011, JUMMEC is published as an on-line journal only and produces non off-prints. This effort is part of our commitment to ensure that JUMMEC is readily available and can be accessible to the public freely, quickly and with little or no restrictions. This decision is also in line with our policy to help save the environment by reducing the number of papers used to produce printed articles.

This Special Issue presents selected peer-reviewed full-text articles from the Faculty of Health Sciences, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM). This issue was an initiative of the Office of the Deputy Dean of Research and Industrial Linkages in order to promote research among faculty members. This edition is a triumph for the Faculty of Health Sciences.

The Faculty of Health Sciences promotes high quality research in various disciplines such as nutrition, nursing, medical imaging, optometry, biomedical science, environmental health, physiotherapy, and occupational therapy. It is imperative that these disciplines come together and exchange knowledge, ideas, and experiences to pave the way for a healthier and more sustainable future. In addition, research in these disciplines is of utmost importance to advance the field of health sciences. Therefore, the faculty encourages all students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, to continue participating in research in order to produce intellectuals with a strong scientific background.

This Special Issue not only focuses on health sciences but also encompasses other fields related to health sciences. Original and review articles are accepted for publication. This issue serves as a good platform for students and researchers to share their research in the ever-evolving field of health sciences.
