Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This Special Issue “Pathophysiology in Colonic Diseases” of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences (IJMS) will publish contributions on all aspects of molecular pathology. Not only experimental studies but also translational researches are acceptable. As IJMS focuses on deep molecular research, papers only containing clinical trials/data are not acceptable. Although we never reject endoscopic studies, studies regarding the endoscopic techniques and/or images alone are not acceptable. This Special Issue invites submissions regarding various colonic diseases such as colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel diseases, irritable bowel syndrome, or colonic infectious diseases. We encourage the researchers to publish studies that attempt to clarify the pathophysiological mechanism of those diseases. Particularly, microbiome, intestinal mucosal immunity, gut hormone, and pharmacological aspects are topics of interest.
