Special Issue "Hormones and Cytokines in Muscle and Bone Diseases"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2024 | Viewed by 723
Muscles and bones are integral components of the human musculoskeletal system, essential for mobility, structural support, and overall physical well-being. The health and functionality of these tissues are tightly regulated by a complex web of signaling molecules, with hormones and cytokines playing pivotal roles. In the context of muscle and bone health, these molecules serve as orchestrators, influencing growth, repair, and maintenance.
Moreover, considering the ageing population, an increasing number of people are suffering from conditions such as osteoporosis and sarcopenia, resulting in increased health care costs due to hospitalizations for surgery on bone fractures. There is, therefore, an increasing need to develop innovative therapies for the treatment of these two age-related conditions, which often have a common onset. Thus, gaining an understanding of the molecular messengers that regulate communication between muscle and bone tissue has become increasingly important.
In line with this aim, original research articles at the molecular or cellular level and comprehensive reviews on the role of hormones and cytokines in muscle and bone pathology are welcome for this Special Issue. Clinical studies detailing biomolecular experiments or pathological research providing case data are also welcome.

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