The Fibrosis section aims to gather current high-quality research to better understand the process of normal tissue repair as well as the pathogenetic mechanisms responsible for the onset and progression of tissue fibrosis that leads to organ dysfunction and failure. Fibrosis is the common denominator in a variety of chronic diseases including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, liver cirrhosis, and ulcerative colitis, among others. These fibrotic diseases affect a vast number of people across the world significantly impacting the quality of their life and increasing health care costs.
The section will focus on high-quality research from basic science to clinical trials. The expert members of our Editorial Board are committed to ensuring a productive scientific discussion and welcome your thought-provoking contributions to Fibrosis.
