Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

For a long time, atherosclerosis has been regarded as a mere lipid deposit in the blood vessels. However, in recent years, a growing body of experimental and clinical evidence has highlighted the role of inflammation and immunity as a central mechanism of disease. Moreover, in the last decade, next-generation sequencing and its application to a large human population has broken the barrier between inflammation and cancer. Indeed, acquired mutation in key genes related to the control of hematopoiesis and myeloproliferation has paved the way to the new concept of clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential. This phenomenon is considered not “indeterminate” but as an emerging cardiovascular risk factor. Thus, this may explain the mechanisms of myeloproliferation and inflammation in atherothrombosis. In a bidirectional journey, it has helped to explain the extremely high cardiovascular risk in cancer survivors, in particular in myeloproliferative neoplasm patients.

A deeper understanding of these mechanisms may pave the way for future early diagnosis and potential pre-emptive treatments of the leading cause of death worldwide.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Biomedicines 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 2600 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.
