Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The great increase in life expectancy is linked to the necessity of counteracting chronic degenerative diseases, e.g., cancer, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular as well as neurodegenerative diseases that affect a high percentage of the population, since oxidative stress and inflammation are common features of these diseases and impact the functions and structures of organs and tissues differently.

As volumes one and two of the Special Issues “Strategies to Counteract Oxidative Stress and Inflammation in Chronic-Degenerative Diseases” have been successful, we will be exploring this issue further in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences (ISSN: 1422-0067, IF: 5.600, and JCR Category Q1). In this third Special Issue, we collect original articles and reviews on this multifaceted topic that still remains largely unexplored, in order to provide support for the development of novel potential therapeutic approaches.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Cellular and molecular mechanisms to counteract oxidative stress and inflammation in aging and chronic diseases;
  • Dietetic strategies for the prevention of chronic diseases;
  • Oxidative stress as a target for interventions;
  • Association of drugs with antioxidant or anti-inflammatory compounds for the therapy of chronic diseases.
