Special Issue "Continuous Glucose Monitoring"
A special issue of Biosensors (ISSN 2079-6374).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 June 2018)
Continuous glucose monitoring technologies provide information on glucose concentrations, direction and rate of change of glucose, and enable the analysis of historical trends. Real-time devices include alerts and alarms for rapid changes in glucose and for concentrations outside of specified ranges.
Clinical data suggest that continuous glucose monitoring can improve overall glucose control, as measured by glycated haemoglobin, and can reduce the burden of extreme glucose values (hypo- and hyperglycaemia).
However, devices remain invasive, accessing the subcutaneous interstitial fluid with a needle-type sensor, and cost remains a barrier to wider adoption in healthcare systems. Methods to improve needle-type sensors and alternative sensor methodologies have the potential to improve accuracy and precision, reduce cost, and may be more acceptable to people with diabetes. Non-invasive optical technologies and transdermal methods have been explored.
In this Special Issue, we seek unique research and development efforts, exploring technologies for continuous glucose sensing and its application for people with diabetes.

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. Biosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 650 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.
