Management of acute and chronic pancreatitis and complications of these diseases has rapidly evolved in recent years, however, there are still many clinically important questions to be addressed. Despite the progress in molecular and radiological diagnostics and the introduction of targeted therapies and introduction of minimally invasive techniques, the personalized treatment of patients presenting with cystic lesions, benign and malignant tumors of the pancreas is still a challenging and interesting field of medicine. Patients with pancreatic cancer are still waiting for the breakthrough in diagnostics and care leading to survival and quality of life comparable to that of patients with other malignant diseases.
This Special Issue aims to discuss the current trends in the diagnosis and management of pancreatic diseases, share the most recent findings from genetic, molecular and clinical studies of pancreatic diseases, including acute and chronic pancreatitis, cystic lesions and cancer of the pancreas.
We are looking for papers presenting cutting-edge research in molecular and clinical pancreatology, focusing on the molecular mechanisms of pancreatic diseases, novel approaches to the diagnosis, prognostication and treatment of acute and chronic pancreatitis, and pancreatic malignancies. Furthermore, we kindly invite you to share data about the novel methods of interventional, minimally invasive and surgical management of benign and malignant pancreatic diseases.

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.
