Oxidative Stress and Inflammation in Diabetic Complications

Call for Papers

Oxidative stress and inflammation affect a multitude of cellular responses in different organ systems and therefore are associated with a host of diseases. Increased prevalence of insulin resistance, a prediabetic condition, and type 2 diabetes is a major concern all over the world. As per WHO estimates, it is expected that by 2030 the number of diabetic patients will be more than double. Progressive deterioration in the metabolic control inspite of intense treatment with existing therapeutic modalities necessitates better understanding and newer therapeutic interventions for the effective management of diabetes and diabetes-associated complications. Recent advancement in the field has led to a common consensus that metabolic syndrome and diabetes are associated with chronic inflammation and increased oxidative stress. In this special issue, our focus is on the role of oxidative stress and inflammation in the diabetic complications, including cardiovascular diseases, nephropathy, neuropathy, retinopathy, urological diseases, and cancer. The guest editors invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that can contribute to better understand the relative influence of oxidative stress and/or inflammation in the progression of diabetes-associated complications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent development in the newer therapeutic modalities targeting oxidative stress and/or inflammation for the better management of diabetic complications
  • Experimental studies investigating the role of oxidative stress and/or inflammation in the progression of diabetic complications
  • Experimental/clinical studies describing the association between dietary habits and lifestyle modifications, which are associated with systemic oxidative stress, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, and inflammation, in the progression of diabetic complications
  • Newer animal or cellular models to study the role of oxidative stress and/or inflammation in diabetic complications
