Special Issue "Molecular Mechanisms of Damage and Regeneration in Disorders Associated with Abdominal Organs"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2022.
Interests: inflammation; macrophages; ischemia reperfusion; cytokines; regeneration; repair; kidney; acute renal failure; cell therapy
Damage and regeneration in abdominal organs produced as a consequence of tissue hypoxia/reoxygenation or ischemia/reperfusion between other pathological stimulus are part of a common response in which molecular signals and inflammatory cells have been recognized as critical stimulus to mediate injury and repair.
Tissue microenvironment, cytokines, leucocytes, and particularly macrophages are involved in both injury and repair mechanisms. Cell secreted factors and cell function are modified as a function of the microenvironment and can act in the aggravation of injury and/or in the repair mechanisms. The molecules, target cells, and regulatory mechanisms associated with ischemia or inflammatory signalling are emerging as promising therapeutic targets, able to promote organ repair and restore normal function.
In this Special Issue, expertise and original studies on all aspects of inflammation, inflammatory cells, cell therapy, and the molecular mechanisms involved in cell response to ischemia or inflammation in abdominal organs are welcomed.

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.
