A Special Issue on inflammatory diseases and their impact on quality of life is being organized in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. For detailed information on the journal, I refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
The term immune-mediated inflammatory diseases covers a wide range of pathologies that can affect different apparatus and systems of the body such as the joints, the intestinal tract or the skin and appendages, among others. They are characterized by a chronic course with possible flare-ups. In recent decades, a revolution has taken place in their treatment with the appearance of biological drugs and other small molecules. In spite of this, in many cases, control of the disease is only partial. In this group of pathologies, evaluating the effectiveness of the treatment through its impact on the quality of life is fundamental. The impact of the disease varies according to personal characteristics and the environment of the individual. Identifying factors related to a better or worse quality of life, the effect of different treatments or evaluating the quality of life in the social environment of patients are issues of great importance. For these reasons, we are promoting this Special Issue focused on quality of life in inflammatory diseases with the aim of deepening, promoting, and strengthening research in this area of knowledge.
New research papers, meta-analysis, reviews, and case reports are welcome to this issue. The keywords listed below provide an outline of some of the possible areas of interest.
