Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Inflammation is considered a driving force behind many chronic diseases, including cancer and neurodegenerative disease. Recently, cancer neuroscience has emerged as a new discipline focused on identifying and therapeutically targeting the interactions between the nervous system and cancer cells, both in the tumor microenvironment and at the systemic level. Inflammatory mediators exert a central role in this interplay, as their ability to quench and prevent inflammation can greatly benefit both cancer and neurological pathologies.

The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight the most recent advances in the biochemical approach to inflammation. This Special Issue will collect studies that cover the investigation of cellular targets and signaling pathway mediators of inflammation, the characterization of new anti-inflammatory agents and novel approaches that can challenge and defeat the chronic inflammatory stimulation that leads to neurodegeneration, pro-oncogenic transformation, and cancer progression. Of particular interest is the discovery and analysis of the neuroprotective effects of natural compounds and nutraceuticals against toxic insults and their antitumor activities through the modulation of genes responsible for inflammation and oxidative stress.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
