Ozone therapy is a complementary, adjuvant or palliative medical treatment consisting in the administration of oxygen–ozone mixtures. In recent decades, this therapy has increasingly been applied all over the world but, despite the wide scientific evidence of the therapeutic potential of ozone treatment, the mechanistic explanation of its positive effects is still incomplete.
This Special Issue aims at illustrating established and novel knowledge on the cellular and molecular mechanisms accounting for the observed successful application of ozone therapy to many different pathological conditions.
We invite researchers of all fields—physicians, pharmacologists, biologists, chemists, etc.—to present their results and propose prospective applications by contributing original research articles or review papers. Manuscripts may deal with the findings obtained on patients or animal models in vivo as well as on tissues and cells in vitro.

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. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
