Dietary Lipids in Health and Disease


Lipids are important cellular and extracellular molecules. They are critical for cell structure, function, and energy, as well as organs and body insulation and protection. In addition lipids metabolites are extremely essential for a wide range of cellular communication and metabolism. However defective lipids metabolism is well known to modulate a wide range of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular, cancer, and several other genetically defective lipids pathways.

Major lipids in human health and diseases may broadly be classified as saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, sterols, phospholipids, sphingosine derivatives, and various other lipids metabolites such as eicosanoids.

In this special issue, we hope to publish papers outlining the beneficial role of lipids and also to focus on the pathogenesis of lipid metabolism. We are particularly interested in topics covering role of lipids in health and its role in the pathogenesis of obesity, aging, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer. Articles should contain some lipids biochemistry, nutrition, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, or toxicology.

We invite researchers to submit original research articles as well as review articles that seek to address a better understanding of lipid and related disorders and its mechanisms as well as recent advances in lipid research. Original, high quality contributions that are not yet published or that are not currently under review by other journals or peer-reviewed conferences are sought. Special attention will be given to papers exploring the link between lipid properties and health and disease. We also emphatically invite submissions addressing basic and clinical research on different diseases and its links to risk for dietary fat intake.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Nutritional lipids in relation to health and disease
  • Nutritional lipid in relation to obesity
  • Nutritional lipid in relation to aging
  • Dietary lipid and cardiovascular diseases
  • Role of oxidative stress on lipid in CVD
  • Lipid in mental health
  • Lipid in nervous, congestion, and Alzheimer’s disease
  • Lipid and cancer
  • Relation of dietary lipid, inflammation, and cancer
  • Role of dietary lipids and colon cancer
  • Lipid and hepatic cancer
