Cardiovascular Diabetology is welcoming papers for the topic Inflammation in diabetes.
It is well established that several constituents of the immune system present various degrees of inflammatory alterations in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Knowledge of these pathophysiological imbalances involved in the occurrence of T2DM and its related complications is critical for achieving a successful prevention, diagnosis and treatment. TDM2 is mainly characterized by an increased insulin resistance and relative deficiency in its secretion, due to a complex interaction between genetic and environmental factors. Genetic polymorphisms encoding production of inflammatory cytokines and increased level of pro-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 diabetes" 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.
