Special Issue "Molecular Mechanisms of Major Inflammatory Occupational Diseases"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 March 2022.
Occupational exposure to chemicals and biological agents is common in many work places. Depending on the type of chemical or biological agent, they may lead to adverse health effects in the workers who are handling these agents through the manufacturing, processing, use, or waste handling. Health effects may vary and could include cardiovascular, pulmonary (i.e., COPD, fibrosis, etc.), neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer. However, molecular and cellular mechanisms are unknown but inflammation is a putative common mechanism that operates in these diseases. Knowing mechanisms of disease will help in identification of molecular markers that could be used for prevention and in particular for design of personalized prevention strategies. Molecular and cellular markers of disease are of utmost importance for personalized prevention as these markers are important for personalized diagnostic and treatment strategies. In this Special Issue, the focus will be on the cellular and molecular markers that drive acute inflammation to become chronic inflammtion and so leading to development of inflammatory occupational diseases.

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.
