Special Issue in Biomedicines: Vascular Function in Chronic Non-communicable Diseases 2.0
Chronic degenerative non communicable diseases (NCDs) have high rates of morbidity and mortality. The major NCDs are diabetes mellitus (DM), cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), lung disease, osteoporosis, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Currently, it is believed that approximately 40% of deaths worldwide may be attributable to these pathological conditions. Lifestyle factors such as physical activity, a healthy diet and abstention from smoking seem to play a key role in reducing the onset and the progression of NCDs. Among the NCDs emerging risk factors, the periodontitis is assuming a relevant role. In fact, a correlation between CKD and oral diseases has been recently demonstrated. Specifically, CKD influences the oral health since it induces gingival hyperplasia, xerostomia, calcification of root canals, delayed tooth eruption and periodontal disease (PD). NCDs can influence the development of oral disease via systemic and oral cavity inflammation. Therefore, the treatment of PD could be useful in reducing the systemic inflammation and the NCDs onset. In recent years, among many innovative therapies for their treatment, natural bioactive compounds and adapted physical activity have been validated as effective by numerous authors. The aim of this Special Issue is to explore the possible correlation between oral diseases and NCDs, analyzing new potential treatments.
