Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Regenerative medicine is a broad and interdisciplinary field that is rapidly growing and is a promising research area. Currently, this field includes alternatives to improve the quality of life, especially in diseases characterized by the loss of tissues and consequently organ death, generally associated with inflammatory diseases. This complexity has motivated different researchers around the world to search for innovations in the development of therapies that accelerate the repair process in the lesion tissue.

The investigation of the direct interaction between active agents and cellular and molecular mechanisms is the key to obtaining tissue regeneration and the maintenance of homeostasis. Biochemical signals, ligand–receptor action, molecular interactions and activation of alternative pathways have shown significant relevance in modulating tissue reorganization in preclinical and clinical models. In this context, this Special Issue proposes an update on different biological regulators in regenerative medicine, providing direction for developing current and future therapies in regenerative medicine. This Special Issue aims to create an interdisciplinary platform involving morphological, physiological, biochemical, molecular, pathological and biotechnological perspectives to discuss the identification, relevance and updates in the repair of tissue and organ injuries. We welcome primary research articles (in silico, in vitro and in vivo) and secondary studies (critical integrative and systematic reviews) that will illustrate and stimulate the continuing effort to understand the effect of biotechnology compounds in the repair of different morphological and/or functional disorders of target organs caused by physical, chemical, biological and/or genetic processes.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Metabolites is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
