Cell toxicity plays an important role in many aspects in biomedicine; the nature and severity of toxicity constitute a very important role in helping to understand basic issues in biological and biomedical processes. Physiologically, cells may deliberately die when are damaged or when they have to be removed to protect a tissue from the accumulation of unwanted cells. In addition, cell toxicity constitutes the main objective in many medical therapies, particularly in cancer, including radiotherapy, chemotherapy, phototherapy or immunotherapy. However, molecular mechanisms of such therapies are not always fully elucidated. Cell response to a determined insult is also related with the mechanisms of endogenous protective systems and, therefore, understanding such mechanisms also improves knowledge of basic cell biology and cancer cell therapies.
This Special Issue is focused on cell toxicity and it would include original articles on aspects related with molecular mechanisms of cell toxicity induced by different insults, mainly cancer therapies, and the ways in which this can lead to cell death. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, physical and chemical insults, intracellular targets, reactive oxygen species, detoxication systems, cell response (cell death mechanisms) and stem cells in toxicity.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
