Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Inflammation is a generic protective response of the body tissues against harmful agents of different origins. It is considered an innate immune response mechanism and characterized by heat, pain, redness, swelling, and loss of function. Inflammation has been classically classified as either acute or chronic, involving the action of different types of immune cells.

Both acute and chronic inflammatory processes are present in a plethora of disorders, such as cancer, atherosclerosis, obesity, allergy or bacterial/viral infections. Furthermore, in the last decade, inflammation has been revealed as key process in organism aging, thus introducing the concept of “inflammaging”. Age-associated accumulation of damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) is an important trigger in inflammation and has been proposed as driver of inflammaging.

The recent technical advances in Liquid Chromatography coupled to Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS) and data processing allow not only a deeper understanding of the molecular processes specifically modulated in each disease, but also patient-based research for personalized medicine. In this Special Issue, we will present cutting edge advances in the use of proteomics tools for the study of the inflammatory diseases and treatment.

This Special Issue is about molecular science. Thus, pure clinical studies will not be suitable, but clinical submissions with biomolecular experiments are welcomed.

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.
