Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Diabetes mellitus is a major health problem globally, with an ascendant trend expected to reach up to 700 million cases by 2045. The microvascular triad includes diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy, and neuropathy, unique in diabetes. Despite significant achievements in early diagnosis and therapy, diabetic retinopathy remains the leading cause of blindness in the working-age population, with a severe impact on patients' quality of life. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy affects nearly 50% of adults with diabetes during their lifetime, and it represents a major risk factor for diabetic foot ulcer (DFU), the most common cause of non-traumatic amputations worldwide. Classically, the duration of diabetes, level of hyperglycemia, arterial hypertension, and dyslipidemia are the most incriminated risk factors. Novel research has found multiple molecular pathways that may interfere with vascular dysfunction, ischemia, and tissular damage.

In this Special Issue, we welcome original articles and reviews providing new research data on diabetic microvascular complications: novel biomarkers, early diagnosis, pathology, molecular mechanisms, and new therapies in diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy, and diabetic foot ulcers.
