Special Issue Information
The diagnostic and therapeutic options in cardiovascular medicine are continuously improving. While the ability to help and protect patients using different devices has massively improved in recent years, risk stratification remains very difficult. Stepwise approaches combining different modalities such as ECG, imaging modalities and cardiac biomarkers are therefore of eminent importance. Furthermore, molecular pathways of many cardiac diseases and the modes of action of new drugs involved in cardiac metabolism have to be further elucidated.
In this Special Issue, we invite researchers to submit their work highlighting new pathways in cardiac metabolism explaining drug or intervention effects as well as biomarkers improving risk stratification for cardiac diseases, such as the development of arrhythmias or sudden cardiac death. All kinds of evidence are welcome, with the exception of case reports.

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. Current Issues in Molecular Biology 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 2000 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.
