Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Atherosclerosis and other chronic disorders remain a global problem. While we are witnessing tremendous progress in understanding their underlying mechanisms, our knowledge is still insufficient to prevent these complex diseases completely. Chronic diseases occur due to the interaction of many factors, the best example of which is atherosclerosis. Today we are far from convinced that classically understood lipids are to blame for everything. It is widely believed that atherosclerosis begins with a sequence of immune-inflammatory responses elicited in response to multifactorial damage to the endothelium. Despite lifestyle changes, the use of new drugs, the availability of new diagnostic tools and markers, and the implementation of new standards have significantly improved the epidemiological situation in the world over the last few decades, but chronic diseases remain a challenge for today's medicine.

In this Special Issue, research covering various aspects underlying chronic disorders are welcome. Interdisciplinary approaches are highly sought after. I look forward to receiving your contribution.

Dr. Dorota Formanowicz
Guest Editor
