Amyloidosis is one of the representative misfolded protein disorders, resulting from intra or extracellular accumulation of amyloid fibrils. While amyloidosis was previously quite an intractable disease, recent basic research on the pathogenesis of several amyloidoses has gradually been able to elucidated several types of amyloidosis, which have become treatable. However, we need more detailed information on amyloidosis and its pathogenesis. Therefore, this Special Issue of Biomedicines will focus on recent advance in amyloid research, including new insights into molecular biology, pharmacology, pathophysiology, and therapeutics. In addition, as it will be more important to make a correct diagnosis in the early stages of the disease after the establishment of effective treatments, submissions regarding new diagnostic procedures are welcome.

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. Biomedicines is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
