Special Issue "The Role of Stem Cells in Multiple Sclerosis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2021.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease that causes issues with vision, balance, coordination, muscle control, and other basic body functions. Multiple sclerosis (MS) can affect the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. The implication of stem cells of different types as a therapeutic treatment option for MS was one of the hot spots in neurodegenerative diseases research in the last decade. Nowadays, several clinical trials—some of them in advanced phases —are ongoing, and encouraging data have been unveiled. This Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences titled “The Role of Stem Cells in Multiple Sclerosis” will focus on the therapeutic potential of stem cells in multiple sclerosis. Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that study or review the mechanism and mode of action of stem cells in MS. Pure clinical studies will not be suitable for this Special Issue, but clinical submissions with bimolecular experiments are welcomed.
