Cardiovascular Diabetology is welcoming papers for the collection Inflammation and cardiometabolic diseases, guest edited by Enrique Fisman: Tel Aviv University, Israel.
The striking relationship between cardiovascular diseases and glucose metabolism imbalance has raised the likelihood that atherosclerosis and type 2 diabetes (T2DM) may share common antecedents. Inflammation is emerging as a plausible etiologic mechanism for both ailments. Both epidemiological and genetic studies indicate that increased pro-inflammatory biomarkers are associated with the development of insulin resistance, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Moreover, several constituents of the immune system present various degrees of inflammatory alterations in patients T2DM. Knowledge of the pathophysiological changes involved in the occurrence of T2DM and its related complications is critical for achieving a successful prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Genetic polymorphisms encoding production of inflammatory cytokines and increased level of inflammatory biomarkers are usually associated to chronic pathologic conditions in TDM2.The most apparent clinical changes are observed in the heart, the kidneys, the eyes, the adipose tissue, the liver, the pancreatic islets and the vasculature. In the "Inflammation and cardiometabolic diseases" collection of Cardiovascular Diabetology we will be happy to consider for publication original articles or reviews on diagnostic and therapeutic aspects related to this field, as well as on novel connected technologies.
This Collection welcomes submission of Research Articles, Data Notes, Case Reports, Study Protocols, and Database Articles. Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have read our submission guidelines. Articles for this Collection should be submitted via our submission system, Snapp. During the submission process you will be asked whether you are submitting to a Collection, please select "Inflammation and cardiometabolic diseases" from the dropdown menu.
Articles will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process and are subject to all of the journal’s standard policies. Articles will be added to the Collection as they are published.
The Guest Editors have no competing interests with the submissions which they handle through the peer review process. The peer review of any submissions for which the Guest Editors have competing interests is handled by another Editorial Board Member who has no competing interests.
