Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Allergy and inflammation are very common across the globe. In part, we can see and understand allergy and inflammation in various diseases, such as food allergy, allergic rhinitis, allergic asthma, allergic contact dermatitis, allergic conjunctivitis, eosinophilic gastroenteritis, acne vulgaris, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease, etc. With the prevalence of infectious diseases today, allergy and inflammation are very important. Recently, it was reported that anaphylaxis (a serious allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and may cause death) or allergic reaction occurred following administration of the coronavirus disease 2019 vaccine. Focusing on differentiation factors, antibody–receptor interactions, ion channels, degranulation, enzymes, signaling molecules, transcription factors, morphological changes, and new cytokines could help to develop new strategies and drugs aimed at preventing and/or treating allergic and inflammatory diseases. Experimental papers, review articles, and clinical studies are welcome. On the other hand, mast cells play a pivotal role in initiating and amplifying allergic reactions. However, mast cells also play an important role in obesity-exacerbated dermatitis. Thus, converging research and interdisciplinary convergence research are also welcome.

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.
