Special Issue "Exercise Induced Muscle Damage and Oxidative Stress"
A special issue of Antioxidants (ISSN 2076-3921). This special issue belongs to the section "Health Outcomes of Antioxidants and Oxidative Stress".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2017).
Interests: exercise induced muscle damage and oxidative stress; inflammation; exercise metabolism; exercise and the opioid system; sports nutrition
Exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD) is associated with muscle soreness or discomfort and a marked decline of muscle strength during the first 12–72 hours post-exercise. Furthermore, EIMD leads to the onset of an inflammatory response that is associated with activation of leukocytes, muscle oedema, deterioration of muscle function, delayed-onset of muscle soreness (DOMS) and several intracellular events that aim to restore the integrity and function of the affected muscle. Oxidative stress on the other hand indicates a condition where the cellular production of pro-oxidant molecules exceeds the ability of the antioxidant system to reduce reactive oxygen or nitrogen species (RONS). Research indicates that oxidative stress is evident following muscle damaging exercise. Perturbations in oxidative stress seem to have a potent role in the adaptation process following EIMD. The purpose of this Special Issue of Antioxidants is to highlight recent developments on the field of EIMD and its association with inflammation and oxidative stress. Therefore, you are invited to submit original research papers, or exceptionally, a review article that focuses upon issues that relate to causes of EIMD, like different exercise protocols, age, gender, genetics, etc., the cellular events that trigger inflammation and oxidative stress and the adaptive responses at the structural and performance level of the muscle following EIMD.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Antioxidants is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
