Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to introduce to you this Special Issue of the Molecular Immunology Section of International Journal of Molecular Sciences on “Extracellular Vesicles in Allergy, Autoimmunity and Immune Regulation 2.0”.

Extracellular vesicles (EVs), such as exosomes, receive special attention due to their involvement in systemic intercellular communication and their capability of delivering various immune regulatory molecules, including non-coding RNAs. This EV-mediated transfer of genetically encoded information is unprecedented and paradigm breaking. Increasing the prevalence of allergic and autoimmune diseases urges researchers and clinicians to search for new and efficient treatments. Accordingly, recent advances in understanding complex functions of EVs in hypersensitivity reactions make them promising candidates for creating a new pathway in specific immunotherapy, firstly by complimenting the existing treatments to reduce the toxic side effects and increase the specificity, and secondly, by altering the unwanted immune responses underlying allergic or autoimmune disorders.

Therefore, this Special Issue is aimed at presenting the comprehensive studies on the functions of EVs in allergies and autoimmune diseases, as well as in the regulation of immune responses. We will also gladly accept the articles describing newly discovered EV-based mechanisms of induction of immune tolerance and uncovering the immunotherapeutic potential of EVs in allergies and autoimmunity.

We cordially invite all interested researchers to submit original and review articles covering relevant basic research findings and the clinical aspects of EVs’ functions to make the “Extracellular Vesicles in Allergy, Autoimmunity and Immune Regulation” Special Issue a platform for sharing experiences between researchers and clinicians.  

Please accept our sincere thanks in advance for choosing this publishing opportunity.

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.
