Orthopaedic Infection Special Issue

Orthopaedic infections, including fracture-related infection (FRI), peri-prosthetic joint infection (PJI), septic arthritis and osteomyelitis, remain amongst the most challenging complications in orthopaedic and musculoskeletal surgery. These infections have been convincingly shown to delay healing, worsen functional outcome and incur significant socio-economic costs.

Keywords: Osteomyelitis, Staphylococcus aureus, antibiotic, local delivery, microbiome, bone, fracture-related infection (FRI), peri-prosthetic joint infection (PJI).

Dental Regenerative Biology Special Issue

This Special Issue intends to provide a comprehensive overview of how dental tissues respond to destructive insults, highlight the cues that are involved in their regeneration and report on the most recent developments in dental regeneration involving a combination of tissue engineering and stem-cell biology. We encourage researchers to contribute to this Special Issue with original research and review articles that could stimulate the continuous efforts to understand dental regenerative biology. We are also interested in articles dealing with potentially novel treatment strategies in dental tissue regeneration.

Keywords: Teeth, dental pulp, periodontium, alveolar bone, stem cells, tissue engineering, injury, tissue regeneration, microfluidics, organoids.

Submission deadline: 30th of September 2020.

eCM Journal website was initially hosted by Aberystwyth University, where Editor-in-Chief and Founder R Geoff Richards studied and Production Editor and Founder Iolo ap Gwynn taught and undertook his research. Aberystwyth Old College needs to secure its future. The Old College Appeal will play a key role in transforming the iconic and much-loved building into a vibrant centre for learning, culture and enterprise and a major catalyst for the development of Aberystwyth University and town, opening to all in 2022 for their 150th anniversary.
