Erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) such as erythropoietin (Epo) and Darbepoetin (Darbe) have been used for over 30 years as red cell growth factors in adults, children, and infants with anemia due to a variety of conditions. Recently, studies have focused on the potential neuroprotective effects of ESAs. Neuroprotective and neuroreparative mechanisms evaluated include decreased apoptosis, increased oligodendrogenesis and neurogenesis, and neuronal protection against inflammation and oxidative injury. This Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences will focus on the study and review of hematopoietic and neuroprotective mechanisms of erythropoietin and newer long-acting erythropoiesis-stimulating agents. Therapeutic uses in a variety of populations will be explored.

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.
