Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years there has been a large increase in scientific publications whose topic has been the study of muscle and its physiopathology. This is not surprising, given that this tissue is fundamental for the well-being of the individual in many ways, for example, for posture, movement, and metabolism.

Considering that muscle diseases represent a comorbid conditions associated with a multitude of genetic and acquired pathologies, clear evidence shows that maintaining muscle health plays a fundamental role in the prevention of the appearance and in controlling the progression of various diseases, and in such way it has a great impact on society in terms of the overall health and well-being of the population of all ages and consequently on the public health service of the various countries in terms of economic savings. For these reasons many research projects are still in progress nowadays.

This Special Issue State-of-the-Art Muscle Disease Research in Italy” invites submission of manuscripts on describing recent advances in scientific research on the study of muscle physio-pathology in Italy, with a multidisciplinary approach that takes into consideration all aspects of research such as muscle anatomy; muscle biochemistry; muscle biology; muscle immunology; muscle pathology; muscle pharma-cology; muscle physiology; and muscle toxicology etc.

Studies on both humans and animal models will be considered. We welcome different types of manuscript submissions, including original research articles and updated reviews (systematic reviews and meta-analyses).
