Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Special Issue in Medicina: Features of Pathogenesis of Human Viral Infections and Antiviral Drugs
Special Issue in Medicina: Pandemic Outbreak of Coronavirus
Pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites, or fungi can cause infectious diseases and can be spread, directly or indirectly, from one person to another. Among infectious diseases, viral infections cause several serious human diseases with high mortality rates. The molecular aspect of drug-resistant viral evolution needs to be better investigated. Indeed, the emergence of new resistant strains, due to the high viral mutation rate, prompts the development of new potent antiviral compounds and therapeutic approaches. All researchers working in the fields of human viral infections and antiviral drugs are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Microorganisms.

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. Microorganisms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
