Autologous and allogenic use of Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) and Decellularized Extracellular Matrices (ECM)
Adipose-derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells (AD-MSCs), and Stromal vascular Fraction (SVF) in which they are contained, are cell-based therapy strategies to improve tissue regeneration or to repair tissue defects. In particular, Stem Cells (Mesenchymal and Follicular), Biotechnology and Bioactive Molecules (Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), Micrografts), and Stromal vascular Fraction may be helpful in this field.
In light of current knowledge on Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs), AD-MSCs, epithelial and dermal cells, Human Follicle Mesenchymal Stem Cells (HF-MSCs), and Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF), numerous researchers have developed different strategies to improve the effects of these varied biotechnology applications.
This Special Issue aims to collect multidisciplinary submissions of original research articles that demonstrate basic research and clinical impacts of autologous and/or allogeneic MSCs, AD-MSCs, and SVFs in tissue repair. Review articles that describe the current state of the art are also welcomed.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
• The molecular mechanisms of SVF, AD-MSCs and MSCs during regeneration;
• Therapeutic application of SVF, AD-MSCs and MSCs (allogeneic and autologous) for major diseases and clinical conditions such as regenerative plastic surgery;
• MSCs and engineered MSCs as vehicles for drug delivery.

Manuscripts can be submitted now or up until the deadline. All papers will go through peer-review process. Accepted papers will be published in the journal (as soon as accepted) and meanwhile listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, reviews as well as short communications are preferred. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office to announce on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts will be thoroughly refereed through a double-blind peer-review process. Please visit the Instruction for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) in this open access journal is 2500 USD. Submitted manuscripts should be well formatted in good English.
