About the book

This book discusses the important features of diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs), including an investigation of its pathogenesis and pathophysiology, along with the molecular mechanisms and biomechanics of the DFUs. It also investigated the epidemiological, genetic, and molecular mechanisms of DFUs and also highlight their applications in clinical practice along with associated risk factors in the progression of DFUs. The book will explore the role of cytokines, epigenetics, and microRNAs that will assist in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers It also highlights the need for newer horizons of nanotechnology in the management of DFUs. Exploring the current clinical management of DFUs along with the latest developments, future directions, and potential new treatments in the domain of nanotechnology using extracellular vesicles, stem cells, nanorods, genetic therapies, and quantum dots to prevent diabetic foot complications The book is a valuable resource for clinicians, researchers, and medical graduates but will also appeal to basic scientists working in the field.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Maja Bozicevic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
