Many studies have illustrated the role of oxidative stress in mediating hypertension associated with various pathologies, including obesity, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, and preeclampsia. Oxidative stress is defined as an imbalance between prooxidants and antioxidants, resulting in an excessive production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS include superoxide anion radical, hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl radical, peroxynitrite, and lipid radicals. Imbalanced ROS generation/elimination can cause structural and physiological damage to DNA, RNA, proteins, and lipids, thereby contributing to inflammation, endothelial dysfunction, vascular injury, and tissue damage associated with hypertension. Furthermore, high levels of ROS can reduce the bioavailability of nitric oxide, a key factor in maintaining the vascular tone.
We encourage you to contribute your latest research or review to this Special Issue, which aims to compile the latest advances in the understanding of the relationship between oxidative stress and hypertension, as well as their potential for designing and evaluating novel antihypertensive therapies. This can include studies relating to any of the following topics: the molecular mechanisms of vascular dysfunction in essential hypertension or associated with other pathologies; oxidative stress addressed through genetic and epigenetic approaches (histone acetylation/methylation, DNA methylation, regulation of microRNA); development of new strategies such as physical training and therapeutics targeting eNOS with oxidative impairment or soluble guanylate cyclase; the delivery of antioxidants directly to the endothelium through specific ligands or through vectors.
We look forward your contribution.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Antioxidants 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 2900 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.
