Special Issue Information
Abundant epidemiological, clinical, and laboratory studies have identified associations between environmental exposures and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. However, there remains an incomplete mechanistic understanding of the basis of these associations. This Special Issue of Metabolites, titled “Assessment of Risk Factors and Biomarkers of Cardiovascular Injury Induced by Environmental Exposure”, will be dedicated to addressing these gaps in mechanistic understanding and to the identification of markers of preclinical cardiovascular disease in humans or animal models. Both original research and review papers will be considered for publication in this Special Issue. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the Special Issue website. Environmental exposures of any type (particles, gases, volatiles, metals) will be considered appropriate. Appropriate topics may include, but are not limited to: the identification of novel biomarkers, how such biomarkers contribute to cardiovascular disease, and methodological advances to assess exposure-induced biomarker changes.
