Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Amyloidosis describes a large group of diseases caused by the deposition of insoluble amyloid fibrils formed by misfolded soluble proteins in organs or tissues. The most common types of systemic amyloidosis are amyloid light-chain (AL) amyloidosis, amyloid A (AA) amyloidosis, and transthyretin (TTR) amyloidosis, which are caused by the deposition of amyloid fibrils constituted from immunoglobulin free light chains (FLCs), serum amyloid A protein, and TTR, respectively. Although the understanding of amyloidosis pathobiology and therapy has increased substantially in recent years, molecular mechanisms, molecular therapeutic targets, and molecular imaging have not been fully elucidated.

This Special Issue is dedicated to molecular research on amyloidosis. Research articles and reviews will inform you about recent developments and update the current stage of knowledge.

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.
