In the normal aging process, both cumulative oxidative stress and low-grade inflammation (inflammaging) play key roles. Moreover, advanced age is associated with increased incidence of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disorders and cancer, which share oxidative stress and inflammation as pivotal players. It is evident that oxidative stress and inflammation have interdependent mechanisms, and are able to induce and exacerbate each other. Indeed, aging has been associated with an increased production of reactive oxygen species and a concomitant antioxidant systems’ impairment, favouring inflammaging. This Special Issue is devoted to disentangling and understanding some of these intricate mechanisms, in order to identify the major contributor(s) of ageing and age-related diseases. In addition, multidisciplinary approaches are strongly desirable to pinpoint new strategies able to interfere with oxidative stress and inflammaging in order to delay the onset of age-related pathologies and provide a healthy lifespan of aging population in the long run.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
