Special Issue Information
Bones and cartilage form the most important parts of the musculoskeletal system that provides mobility and maintains body posture. Musculoskeletal disorders, namely, those affecting bone and cartilage, limit the mobility and productivity of individuals, leading to early retirement from work and a reduced ability of people to participate in society. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, and low back pain are the major musculoskeletal disorders and represent a significant socioeconomic burden on individuals and medical services worldwide. A better understanding of the pathophysiology of bone and cartilage in these diseases should provide important clues for the discovery of new therapies. The current Special Issue focuses on molecular and cellular mechanisms underlining bone and cartilage pathology and novel therapeutic approaches targeting the above diseases. We welcome research or review articles focusing on the following topics:
- Molecular and cellular mechanisms underlining bone and cartilage pathology in related diseases;
- Bone and cartilage metabolism in health and disease;
- Therapeutic strategies for prevention of bone and cartilage pathology;
- Novel approaches for bone and cartilage regeneration.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Biomedicines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
