Special Issue Information

Dear Colleague,

The journal Pharmaceuticals will be publishing a Special Issue covering the topic “Cell Therapy” and I am cordially inviting you to contribute an article to this volume.  This is a timely issue as cell therapy has recently evolved from laboratory research/animal models into clinical trials showing promising results.

Cell therapy covers a wide variety of research, from proof of principle experiments to clinical cell transplant/cell therapy, including immune cell therapy, vaccine therapy, gene therapy, and others. Most of the area may belong to either cancer cell therapy or regenerative medicine. For this issue, I would like to invite manuscript submissions from authors engaged in a wide variety of projects in order to meet the needs of interested readers from various backgrounds.

I hope this issue facilitates discussions among investigators in the many different areas of cell therapy which may lead to further steps in the pertinent investigations.
