If pathophysiology were a fan propeller, cell death would constitute the pivot. Indeed, most diseases are connected to deregulated cell death in some way. Excessive, unwarranted cell death accounts for pathological cell loss, be it slowly degenerative as in Alzheimer's disease or dramatically acute as in stroke and myocardial infarction. Infectious pathogens manipulate cell death pathways to induce or inhibit the death of host cells at will and to subvert the immune recognition of ‘dangerous’ cell death. Finally, cancer is inexorably linked to a partial suppression of cell death programs in tumor cells, although therapy aims to (re)activate such lethal programs. Cell Death and Disease, a new open-access, online journal aims to provide center stage to fundamental, disease-oriented and translational research in cell death. [Opening paragraph]
