Thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) is a pathological syndrome characterized by microangiopathic hemolytic anemia (MAHA), thrombocytopenia, and organ damage, primarily of the kidney and brain. Several approaches have been proposed for classification of TMA, each taking into account various aspects, such as genetic predisposition and secondary causes, violations of complement function or von Willebrand factor metabolism, dependence on pregnancy, transplantation, oncological diseases, the influence of drugs, etc. The molecular mechanisms causing TMA are diverse and not fully understood. The pathogenesis of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura and hemolytic uremic syndrome are the most studied forms of TMA. There is less clarity regarding other forms of TMA. The key reason for the development of TMA is damage of the microvascular endothelium. However, the mechanisms of endotheliopathy remain poorly understood. The purpose of this Special Issue is to present, analyze and summarize the latest data on the molecular and cellular mechanisms of the development of various forms of TMA and thrombotic complications. Of interest are articles that will characterize the pathogenetic mechanisms of TMA associated with other comorbidities. Another objective of the Issue is to consider the effectiveness of new approaches to the treatment of TMA, based on the use of new drugs that affect the main pathogenetic links of this disease.

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. Biomolecules 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 2700 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.
