Special Issue Information
In 2019, the number of bone fractures was estimated at 178 million new cases and 455 million prevalent bone fractures worldwide. Aside from trauma, primary bone diseases including osteoporosis, osteopenia, osteoarthritis, osteomalacia and cancer-related bone disease are greatly contributing to bone fracture. Several pharmacological agents from natural or chemical synthesis have been developed as the first line of treatment or disease-modifying drugs. Nevertheless, the upstream molecular mechanisms of some of these drugs remain undetermined. The molecular understanding of these drugs is essential to identify novel molecular targets for new drug therapies.
Thus, we encourage all researchers working on this topic to submit research articles or reviews on the molecular pharmacology of bone diseases, including but not limited to osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and osteosarcoma. Any relevant pre-clinical or clinical studies on pharmacological agents like bioactive compounds, biologics, immunotherautic agents, nanoparticles or semi-synthetic or synthetic drugs are welcome. Treatment-induced bone diseases will also be considered. However, we do not encourage the study with cruel extract or its molecular pharmacology aspect is not determined.
