Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) refers to a group of disorders that impacts the heart and blood vessels, leading to high mortality and disability rates worldwide. CVD conditions could be caused by multiple factors, including atherosclerosis, congenital heart defects, infection, high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. However, the underlying mechanisms driving CVD are largely unknown and approved therapies are still limited. Thus, novel targets and therapeutic approaches are urgently needed for the treatment of CVD. In this Special Issue, we encourage the submission of research articles or reviews to gain new insights into: (1) the mechanisms of CVD; (2) novel gene targets/molecular pathways associated with the initiation and progression of CVD; (3) novel or improved therapeutic approaches to treat CVD; (4) mathematical models to assess or predict CVD risk; (5) animal models to study CVD; (6) clinical trials of novel therapies; (7) the potential interplay between CVD and other diseases.
