Special Issue "Update on Basic and Molecular Research in Inflammatory Bowel Disease"
A special issue of International Journal of Molecular Sciences (ISSN 1422-0067). This special issue belongs to the section "Molecular Pathology, Diagnostics, and Therapeutics".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 January 2020.
Interests: Colorectal cancer and dysplasia in inflammatory bowel disease; Helicobacter pylori and gastric cancer; Intestinal lymphoma
Interests: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Target therapy, mucosal immunology, inflammatory cytokines, gut microbiota, intestinal mucosal healing, IBD murine models, tumorigenesis associated to chronic inflammation
In the recent years, many advances in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, have emerged with a substantial impact on daily clinical practice. These new findings allowed the introduction of new molecular markers and innovative drugs useful for an innovative clinical approach to IBD. We propose to your attention a special issue of IJMS including Reviews and Research Articles regarding recent advances in the field of basic and molecular research with translational applications in IBD.
The establishment of new goals in the management of IBD and the continuation in the understanding of the IBD pathogenic mechanisms have introduced new concepts in the area of intestinal fibrogenesis, small oral therapeutic molecules, gut microbiota, molecular markers of intestinal healing, molecular predictive markers of response to therapy.
In this Special Issue, we will welcome your contributions in the form of original research and review articles facing each side of basic and molecular research in IBD.

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. 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.
