Pathophysiological Insights into Cardiovascular Health in Metabolic Syndrome

Description

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a common phenotype of a cascade of comorbidities including central obesity, hyperglycemia, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. MetS is rapidly growing in prevalence and is strongly related to the development of cardiovascular disease. Recent advances in biology and medicine have introduced new technologies to study the genetics and pathophysiology in the cardiovascular aspects of MetS. Knowledge and understanding of these conditions have led to the development of animal models, successful therapies, and novel tools to characterize the cardiovascular complications in MetS and thus to provide better care to patients. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand the pathophysiology underlying cardiovascular complications, the development of strategies to treat these conditions, and the evaluation of outcomes. We are particularly interested in articles describing the new insights in animal models and current concepts in the treatment of cardiovascular complications using small molecules, SiRNA, stem cells, and viral and nonviral gene therapy strategies. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Advances in animal models and genetics of cardiovascular complications in MetS
  • Latest technologies for clinical evaluation and measuring cardiovascular outcomes
  • Role of inflammation, apoptosis, and autophagy in cardiovascular complications in MetS
