Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue, Preparation and Application of Biomedical Materials, will highlight global discussions and studies on avant-garde manufacturing processes and their feasibility for biomedical applications. We are looking for innovative approaches with great potential, for instance, facile and novel methods to increase stability, a strengthened responsiveness towards body microenvironments, a composite integrating multiple functions, or a drug with clinical translational potential. However, understanding the numerous possibilities of this field, we encourage you to share your ideas. Quality summaries/reviews on recent advances are welcome, as are papers on potential topics including, but not limited to: the preparation of certain category materials, advances in certain biomedical applications, or challenges and perspectives of current developments.

Suggested keywords including but not limited to,

  • drug delivery;
  • cancer therapy;
  • tumor microenvironment;
  • nanomedicine;
  • enhanced permeability and retention;
  • theranostics;
  • cellular uptake

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. Processes 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 2400 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.

Research into bone tissue engineering is increasing with advances in biomaterials. Natural products of plant origin have exciting therapeutic effects through multiple targets. The purpose of this article is to review the outstanding performance of herbal-derived natural products in bone tissue engineering. We have categorized herbal-derived natural products that exert different effects in bone tissue engineering into osteogenic, vascular, chondrogenic, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. Natural products of plant origin are readily available and can be combined with biomaterials as bioactive molecules to complement each other and provide additional opportunities for bone tissue engineering. Finally, we discuss the challenges and opportunities for the development of plant composite biomaterials for bone tissue engineering and highlight emerging strategies in this field. Full article
