Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recently, there has been a rapid expansion of knowledge in both health and the clinical approach to erythrocyte-related diseases. Long assumed to be inert oxygen carriers, red blood cells (RBCs) are emerging as important modulators of the innate immune response. Furthermore, novel red blood cell functions, blood bank storage methods, and RBC-based therapies are in development. We are pleased to invite you to contribute original articles, communications, and reviews covering the entire field of RBC research, including (but not limited to):

Red blood cell (RBC) aging;

Pathological RBCs;

Immunological aspects of RBCs;

Blood bank storage;

RBC and vascular function;

The use of RBCs as drug carriers or biomarkers.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
