Biotherapy Journal Review

Beginning in 2016, the BTER Foundation expanded its efforts by bringing you not one review but a collection of reviews and current citations from the latest biotherapy literature. Each collection, published quarterly, is known as the Biotherapy Journal Review, and will be available at no cost to anyone interested to read it.  To recieve the Biothearpy Journal Review automatically via email, please sign up here.  The reviews will also be posted individually on this page, in chronological order, keyed by topic. Most reviews will be noted in the monthly newsletter, The BeTER LeTTER.

Archives of older issues of the Biotherapy Journal Review, along with Bibliographies, will still be available ONLY to BTER Foundation Members.  If you are a member, please visit the member-only journal forum, containing archives and bibliographies, at http://www.bterfoundation.org/membersjforum.  If you would like to become a member, please visit http://www.bterfoundation.org/join.

If you would like to join our Editorial Board and help us review articles, drop us a line at editor@BTERFoundation.org.
