Special Issue "Developing Novel Therapies to Prevent Atherosclerosis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (5 June 2019).
Interests: Atherosclerosis, inflammation, macrophages, chemokines, high-density lipoproteins, angiogenesis, diabetes
Despite the vast amount of clinical and pre-clinical research that has been invested in the prevention of atherosclerosis, it continues to affect more than 30% of Western populations. The identification of new targets that regulate atherosclerosis, and the development of more plaque modifying therapies, are therefore required. The mechanisms that underlie atherosclerosis are still not fully understood, in particular, how these mechanisms may change with the stage of atherosclerosis is under appreciated. This Special Issue seeks original research manuscripts and reviews that address a range of topics that are related to the use of current therapies, their failures and/or successes, and new up and-and coming therapies. The identification of new regulators of atherosclerosis based on preclinical findings is also welcomed.
