Special Issue "Cholinergic Control of Inflammation"

The International Journal of Molecular Sciences is publishing a Special Issue entitled "Cholinergic Control of Inflammation". Over the last 20 years, autonomic regulation of local and systemic inflammation through the "cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway" has been increasingly recognized as playing an important role in several areas, including neurodegenerative diseases (AD and PD), metabolic syndrome, and autoimmune diseases. As Guest Editor, I would be very pleased if you would contribute to this issue with either an original research paper or a focused review with an emphasis on the molecular mechanisms that regulate the cholinergic response to inflammation, their pathological deregulation, and potential therapeutic applications. Contributions concerning the cholinergic system and COVID-19 are also welcome.

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.
