It is with great pleasure I invite you to contribute to this Special Issue with the thematic title: “Innovative Strategies against Radiation-Induced Toxicity and Adverse Effects”. Your manuscript can be a mini-review or research paper of high-quality. The determination of radiation effects includes the knowledge and investigation of a variety of mechanisms and, primarily, the radiation response pathways. Radiation toxicity and the so called “acute” or “late” adverse effects are very important for the quality of life of cancer survivors. Therefore, any strategies securing the optimum therapy, i.e., maximum tumor cell killing effect and minimum toxicity are of great interest to clinicians and researchers but, above all, the patients and, in general, human society.
Through this Special Issue, I hope to include high-quality work from different areas and groups working on different, but complementary, thematic research subjects including also clinical approaches on innovative strategies, and approaches minimizing radiation adverse effects primarily in radiation therapy and any radiation exposure (diagnostics, etc.). Any experimental or theoretical and modeling work particularly targeting the role of oxidative stress, DNA damage and inflammation in this phenomenon is very welcome, including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory treatments. In addition, any omics data and work targeting proteomics and transcriptomics relating to radiation effects and the discovery of biomarkers predicting radiation sensitivity, oxidant status and inflammation are also most welcome. Research targeting also other type of stresses like UV radiation and oxidative stress leading to systemic effects will be accepted for submission. Modelling of DNA damage and interaction with antioxidants and radioprotectors are of great interest. Last but not least, this Special Issue welcomes any work from the so called area of “low doses” and systemic effects of radiation and the role that ROS and inflammatory responses may play in the propagation of any non-targeted or systemic effects in any organism (humans and animals).

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 1600 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.
