Special Issue "Adenovirus Pathogenesis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2020).
Interests: virus–host interactions, gastrointestinal viruses
Adenoviruses constitute a common cause of disease in humans, which includes infection in airways, gut, eyes, but also in lymphoid tissue, urinary tract, and liver. Adenovirus infections can be both acute and persistent, and the latter are a common cause of death in immunocompromised patients. There are no approved drugs against this pathogen, implying that studies to better understand its basic biology and pathogenesis are urgently needed. In this Special Issue, we would like to address the molecular and cellular mechanisms of adenovirus infection and pathogenesis. This includes the molecular determinants of cell and tissue tropism, life cycle, transmission in the host, mechanisms of cell death and tissue damage, as well as modulation and evasion of the host’s immune defense. We welcome all paper formats, including short and regular original articles and reviews. For participants of the 14th International Adenovirus Meeting in Spain (https://iam2020.atlantacongress.org/), a 10% discount on Article Processing Charges will be applied.

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.
