Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Numerous biological targets have been suggested to provide protective effects in experimental colitis models. However, currently, only a few of the identified molecules have been established for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in patients. In this collection, we want to summarize the pitfalls and fallacies associated with the lack of translation from pre-clinical models into clinics, which might be at least in part due to the fact that many different clinical entities are summarized under the umbrella of IBD. Since IJMS is a journal of molecular science, pure clinical studies are not suitable for our journal. However, clinical submissions with biomolecular experiments are welcomed. We encourage the authors to reveal new molecular mechanisms in their research.

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.
