Special Issue Information
It is well known that tissue engineering is today a great challenge for clinicians and researchers who aim to perform safe and predictable regenerative procedures in the field of medicine. In recent years, growth factors applied to regenerative and reconstructive medicine have been introduced as a therapeutic option in the treatment of several congenital and acquired bone defects after tumor resection or trauma. Although there have been promising clinical results, the international literature is still lacking complete guidelines, including limits and indications, for the use of growth factors and their carriers.
In the near future, the use of tissue engineering as well as the application of exogenous cytokines, particularly those in the BMPs series, will become common and the regeneration of osseous defects will likely be carried out as a clinical outpatient procedure. In this Special Issue, we want to provide a global overview of the advances in growth factor applications from molecular and clinical points of view, ranging from the new discoveries in the field in tissue engineering to the molecular etiological aspects of the biomaterials applied as carriers. This Issue will also cover new advances in preclinical molecular therapeutic strategies for managing large body resection treatment by using tissue engineering.
On behalf of the International Journal of Molecular Science, you are cordially invited to contribute an article to the Special Issue “Molecular and Clinical Features of Growth Factors Applied to Tissue Engineering”.
Prof. Dr. Marco Cicciu
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.
