Oxidative stress theory remains one of the most well-studied and debated topics, particularly with regard to its role in both the promotion and progression of vascular disease. A large number of studies have demonstrated the deleterious effects of activated levels of oxidative stress in chronic inflammation and vascular disease (both arterial and venous). On the other hand, unbalanced or lowered antioxidant capability has also been a subject of focus, with the aim of reducing the detrimental effects of oxidative stress damage. These studies have also led to increased knowledge and the development of innovative approaches in counteracting active oxidative stress. Furthermore, it is crucial to identify both direct and indirect markers of oxidative stress damage. Thus, evaluating the role of oxidative stress on the dysregulation of redox-sensitive biological pathways in vascular diseases is an area of great interest. This Special Issue will publish both review and research articles pertaining to the role of oxidative stress in different types of vascular disease.
