Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality globally. Increasing rates of diabetes, the disproportionate growth of hypertension in low- and middle-income countries, coupled with an expanding life expectancy, predict continued worldwide growth of cardiovascular disease for decades to come. The rationale development of effective treatments and diagnostic tools for this emerging epidemic requires an understanding of the molecular basis of cardiovascular disease.
This special issue of Biomolecules seeks original research papers and reviews covering current and emerging topics related to the Molecular Basis of Cardiovascular Diseases. Established areas including ischemia-perfusion injury associated with myocardial infarction and cardiac surgery are encouraged, as are traditionally under-represented topics like sex differences in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease. Emerging challenges such as the role of environmental pollutants on cardiovascular health and disease development provide an excellent prospect to expand the scope of cardiovascular medicine, and are welcome for consideration in this special issue. Finally, research that transcends disciplinary boundaries including cardio-oncology and cardio-obstetrics offer the unique opportunity to bring new perspectives to the forefront.
Original research studies and reviews are encouraged to cover the scope of health and disease, from patient to molecule, but with a focus on the molecular basis of disease. We look forward to considering all submissions and working to improve our understanding the Molecular Basis of Cardiovascular Diseases.
