Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue focuses on understanding the roles of ion channels in immune and cancer cells under pathological conditions and microenvironments. Ion channels are potential drug targets for the treatment of acute and chronic inflammatory diseases including cancers. Examples of inflammatory diseases include allergies, asthma, autoimmune diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, and tissue fibrosis. In cancers, non-cancer cells such as immunostimulating and immunosuppressive cells are included. Comprehensive review articles are also welcome.

Prof. Dr. Susumu Ohya
Guest Editor
