Special Issue "Lipoprotein Metabolism and Atherosclerosis"
A special issue of Journal of Cardiovascular Development and Disease (ISSN 2308-3425).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 June 2018).
Interests: lipid and lipoprotein metabolism; lipid oxidation; atherogenesis; transcriptional regulation; micro-RNA; T2DM
JCDD is launching a Special Issue on “Lipoproteins and Atherosclerosis”. Atherosclerosis is a multi-factorial and multi-genetic disease affecting large populations worldwide. It is the major trigger of cardiovascular diseases, myocardial infarction, and stroke. These latter diseases account for more than 50% of deaths in the civilized countries. Several hundreds risk factors causally related to atherosclerosis have been described—yet there is no doubt that derangements of lipid and lipoprotein metabolism are the main causes of this disease. These might be genetically determined yet the majority is certainly a result of inappropriate and sedentary life style, harmful diet or secondary diseases. Enormous progress has been reached in diagnosis and treatment of lipoprotein disorders in recent years that certainly contributes to the prolonged life expectancy in most populations. We invite authors to submit high-quality original or review articles related to the scope of this Special Issue of JCDD.
