Despite enormous progress in cardiovascular medicine, many fundamental treatments remain palliative rather than curative, leading to suboptimal clinical outcomes. One such example is heart failure, resulting from loss of contractile myocardial tissue.
The emergence of a new field, regenerative medicine with cell replacement therapy enabling recovery of injured tissues and activation of endogenous processes of tissue repair, opens novel paths and new perspectives for development of curative therapies. In this Special Issue devoted to stem cell-based therapies we will discuss recent breakthroughs both in the areas of basic and translational research and clinical medicine. We aim to depict cutting-edge data on recent progress in understanding stem cells biology in relation to their therapeutic potential, new approaches in tracking and imaging of both stem cells and tissues/organs undergoing regeneration, and data from clinical trials of cell-based therapies. Moreover, the mechanisms of stem cells activity including extracellular vesicle production and potential use will be presented.

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.
