Metabolic syndrome is defined as a cluster of conditions characterized by impaired glucose metabolism, hypertension, central obesity, low LDL-C, and high triglyceride levels. It also promotes glucose intolerance and chronic systemic inflammatory conditions characterized by immune cell infiltration, and this immune system activation increases the risk of serious disease following viral infection. In addition, studies have been reported to increase diseases associated with various metabolic disorders, such as nonalcoholic fatty liver, psoriasis, and IBD. Metabolic disease tends to progress quietly and gradually rather than with acute symptoms. Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, increased processed food and salt intake, surplus energy accumulation, sedentary lifestyle, and reduced physical activity are thought to be risk factors for an increase in metabolic disease. Therefore, the discovery of drugs related to metabolic diseases and metabolic disorder has an important meaning in this difficult period. I hope that this Special Issue will provide an opportunity to help all patients and bring about the development of the scientific community. In order to do this, the cooperation of all our valuable colleagues, including yourself, is essential.
We are pleased to welcome papers reviewing the most recent research on this topic in the present thematic issue.
We look forward to your contribution.
