Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are launching a new Special Issue entitled “Effects of Hypertension and Diabetes on Cardiovascular Disease”. This launch aligns with the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) of reducing premature mortality from noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) by one-third by 2030. This target cannot be reached without reducing the burden of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and their associated risk factors. CVD is a major cause of premature mortality and remains the leading course of untimely death across the globe.  Major risk factors that drive and contribute to this high CVD burden include hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia and hypercholesterolemia. Furthermore, disparities by ethnicity, race, geographical distribution and sex remain significant in research, especially sex-specific risk factors such as perimenopause. Hence, more research is required focusing on implementation, treatment, and prevention strategies, along with mechanisms and pharmacotherapies, to decrease cardiovascular disease risk. 

This Special Issue aims to collect updated reviews and original articles investigating modifiable and non-modifiable risk predictors, biomarkers, pathophysiology and therapeutics that can improve treatment outcomes and reduce CVD risk, as well as inviting the submission of clinical studies exploring the roles hypertension and diabetes play in CVD treatment outcomes amongst perimenopausal women
