Special Issue "Emerging and Innovative Approaches for Wound Healing and Skin Regeneration: Current Status and Advances"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2023) | Viewed by 41703
Interests: wound healing; hypertrophic scar formation; keloids; in vitro models; in vivo models; mechanisms of skin fibrosis
Wound healing and tissue regeneration are complex processes that are orchestrated by a plethora of factors and cell types. Although many key mechanisms of wound healing are already well described, potent therapeutics are still scarce. Significantly, the treatment of non-healing skin ulcers in diabetic patients is still a major challenge. In addition, the formation of hypertrophic scars and keloids, as a result of disturbed skin regeneration, represents a major problem after wound healing.
In this Special Issue, we welcome basic and translational research, as well as review articles, that aim to describe novel mechanisms and innovative therapeutic approaches that can be used to improve wound healing and skin regeneration. Furthermore, manuscripts on the patho-mechanisms of hypertrophic scar and keloid formation and new potential targets for scar management are also highly appreciated.

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. Pharmaceutics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
