Special Issue "Molecular Basis of Autoimmunity Diseases"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
Interests: autoimmune diseases; cytokines; T cells; B cells; immune tolerance; cell therapy; antibodies
As you know, the current state-of-the-art treatment of autoimmune diseases is not curative and is associated with considerable toxicity. The major obstacle is that we still lack clear understanding of the molecular basis of the pathogenesis and development of autoimmune diseases. Nonetheless, over the last few years, many studies have been emerging to gain insight into the roles of cells, cytokines, autoantibodies, biomolecules, and genes in initiating and promoting the onset and progression of autoimmune diseases. More importantly, the developed knowledge and approaches have been associated with clinical relevance.
It is my great pleasure to invite you and your teams, as experts from diverse backgrounds (medicine, immunology, clinics, genetics, molecular biology, and epidemiology), as well as those working in the rheumatology and allergic diseases field, to contribute original research or review articles. We are especially interested in articles that cover studies on the identification, roles, and molecular mechanisms of biomolecules and translational approaches of clinical relevance in autoimmune and allergic diseases.

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. Biomolecules 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.
