Acute lung injury (ALI) and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) describe clinical syndromes of acute respiratory failure with substantial morbidity and mortality. Even in patients who survive ALI, there is evidence that their long-term quality of life is adversely affected. Recent advances have been made in the understanding of the epidemiology, pathogenesis, and treatment of this disease. However, more progress is needed to further reduce mortality and morbidity from ALI and ARDS. Because this syndrome of acute respiratory failure is so common both in the United States and worldwide, it is fair to say that ALI/ARDS is an unmet medical need. In other words, novel therapies need to be developed to further improve clinical outcomes. This Special Issue aims to provide an overview of the current and future definitions, pathogenesis, and treatment of acute lung injury. Original articles/reviews on natural or synthetic compounds as new treatments for respiratory disease and on the effects of environmental pollutants (such as endocrine disruption) that explore the molecular pathways involved during ALI/ARDS are 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. 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.
