Special Issue Information
Gaseous signaling molecules, including nitric oxide (NO), carbon dioxide (CO) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S), have been emerging as physiologically and pathophysiologically important mediators in mammals. Manipulating these mediators as a therapeutic measure seems to be promising in various diseases, and has already, at least partly, fulfilled their clinical application, mostly with the inhalation of NO. The manipulation of H2S or persulfide/polysulfide, oxidative products of H2S, is being examined in clinical trials. However, these therapies still possess challenging aspects for broader clinical application, such as toxicity, rapid diffusion, a short half-life and a narrow therapeutic window. Novel therapeutic methods or strategies are required to enable more successful clinical applications of these gaseous mediators. These mediators or their metabolites also crosstalk/interact each other, and could exhibit nonspecific diverse reactions, which complicate the understanding of the biology of gaseous mediators and remain to be elucidated.
In the current Special Issue, we welcome original research articles or review articles that focus on physiology/pathophysiology, therapies, detection methods and redox reactions related to NO, H2S and their metabolites, which help the establishment of novel therapies for illness.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Antioxidants is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
