Special Issue Information
As the techniques and instruments are rapidly evolving, the role of endoscopic therapies has become highly important in many gastrointestinal diseases. For early epithelial lesions, endoscopic resection or ablation has been the first-line option given its effectiveness and safety. Furthermore, significant subepithelial lesions may be safely resected endoscopically in the presence of new instruments and the expanding roles of “third-space endoscopy”. Pancreato-biliary endoscopy is a well-established field. Nevertheless, the progress of internal drainage has been ongoing to replace the need of percutaneous and surgical treatments, and endoscopic ablation may contribute the multi-modality treatment of malignant pancreato-biliary neoplasm. In addition, endoscopic therapies can be useful in non-malignant motility or functional disease. While the success of peroral endoscopic myotomy for achalasia is the most remarkable case, endoscopic therapies continue to show promising potential in gastroesophageal reflux disease, obesity, and metabolic disease.
In this Special Issue, we welcome any original research, technical note, or review articles which address the therapeutic advances in gastrointestinal endoscopy and provide insights into clinical practice as well as future innovations.

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. Life is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
