Dietary interventions of coronary heart disease aim to halt or reverse the atherosclerosis process, the main driver for myocardial ischemia and to prevent secondary events. Even though dietary-based approaches have been linked to reduced cardiovascular risk worldwide, randomized trials on the effects of complex dietary interventions on CVD have been less impressive due to the intra-individual variability in response to treatments.
The purpose of this special issue on “Nutritional Determinants and Cardiovascular Disease” is to offer a novel insight into the effects of dietary patterns, nutrient supplementation, meal-based effects and long-term effects of sustained dietary interventions on atherogenicity. This will be presented in a context, physiologically relevant to human disease. We aim to explore further how dietary interventions affect the molecular mechanisms of disease as related to the major atherogenic risk factors, which include the tetrad of dyslipidaemia, elevated blood pressure, impaired glucose tolerance, and overweight. The insidious impact of the inflammatory component of each moiety will be discussed in the context of how the response of dietary effects are themselves modulated by the genetic and epigenetic milieu and affect cardiovascular biomarkers.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
