At the end of the introduction, the purpose of the study should be stated under the heading of objectives.
- Materials and Methods: It should be start from the beginning of the page. Methods should describe the investigated group, applied methods and the statistical analysis. Experimental procedures should be given in sufficient detail to allow these to be replicated by other researchers. The source of the various materials used in the study should be given, where possible.
- Results: It should be start from the beginning of the page. Results should be presented very in a logical fashion, with no need for the reader to solve. Tables and figures should complement the text of the results, not contain duplicate data, be given at the end of the file and referenced in the text. Regarding the P value report, keep in mind that the value 0.000 is not valid and should be written as <0.001.

- Conclusions: Conclusions should refer to the aims of study and be presented in precise form.
- Footnotes: It should be start from the beginning of the page and includes the following:
- Acknowledgements: The authors should first acknowledge the sources of any support for the work in the form of grants, equipment, or drugs presented in their article followed by any personal credits.

- List of abbreviations: For standard abbreviations, authors should follow the guidelines in the Council of Biology Editors Style Manual, 5th edition. All other abbreviations should be defined when first used and listed in a footnote; Abbreviations PDF.
- References: Authors must ensure that all references are cited accurately and those in the main text body are also included in the list of references and vice versa. References should list all the bibliographical sources cited in the text, in the order of their appearance. Citations in the text should be put in square brackets.

Once manuscript acceptance the editor office will ask, you to supply a Word file of the final version of your paper with all figures cited in original place. You must ensure that the file has been updated to incorporate all revisions. The article will be processed and you will receive the proofs for any further corrections in paper, authors and their addresses. The correction must be completed with 48-hours from receiving the proof otherwise the DOI number of manuscript will be activated and any further corrections will be appear in Cross Mark. The final published paper will be appearing as abstract only for limited access and PDF/full-text to open access article. The captions (legends) will be inserted below the figures, tables, Photographs, clinical images, photomicrographs, gel electrophoresis and cited though the paper.
