Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality around the world, and represent a significant burden to society and the economy. Accumulating evidence has demonstrated a clear connection between the immune system and the entire spectrum of cardiovascular disease. Studies in recent years have illustrated the critical role that immunity and inflammation play in the development and progression of cardiovascular diseases. These findings have led to a greater understanding of the role of the innate and adaptive immune systems in CVDs, but critical gaps remain in our understanding. Of special interest is the role of cytokines and chemokines, infectious agents, chronic inflammation, and oxidative stress in the development of cardiovascular disease. To address these gaps, the International Journal of Molecular Sciences has launched a Special Issue and is seeking submissions on the topic of “New Insights into Immunity and Inflammation in Cardiovascular Diseases”.
