There is accumulating evidence that elevated plasma triglyceride levels are a risk factor for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disorders including stroke, and for metabolic diseases such as diabetes. Aberrations in the metabolism of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins and their remnants are increasingly considered pathogenic, much like low-density lipoprotein, however the mechanisms of causality are less clear.
The Nutrients Special Issue titled “The Role of Triglycerides and Triglyceride Metabolism in Human Health” seeks to provide contemporary consideration of how the metabolism of triglycerides and of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins contributes to human health, especially the etiology of vascular-based disorders. The Special Issue seeks to include, but to also expand knowledge beyond, cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis. Submissions with a focus on cerebrovascular and neurodegenerative disorders, peripheral vascular disease, as well as metabolic and/or endocrine dysfunction are strongly encouraged.
We hope you find this Special Issue “The Role of Triglycerides and Triglyceride Metabolism in Human Health” to be timely, and appreciate your positive consideration to submit.

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.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
