Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The most common cause of cancer death worldwide is lung cancer, but other respiratory pathologies also cause high mortality, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary fibrosis, infections such as influenza and SARS-CoV-2, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), pulmonary hypertension, and asthma. The 5-year survival rate remains very low for patients with advanced stage lung cancer. Many drugs have already been proposed for the treatment of lung diseases. Few of them are in clinical trials and have the potential to cure infectious diseases.

The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a platform for the mechanistic investigation of the molecular pathogenesis of lung diseases, with a special focus on potential drug therapies. We warmly welcome the submission of original articles and outcome-based reviews from molecular viewpoints.

Dr. Kazufumi Nakamura
Guest Editor

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English.
