Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in Western countries. A great amount of evidence indicates that CVD begins in early life with the onset of risk factors that contribute to the development of subclinical atherosclerosis, and subsequently to overt CVD. Thus, primordial, primary prevention, as well as primary and secondary prevention of CVD, are public health priorities.
The evaluation of circulating biomarkers by laboratories is a critical tool to assess antecedent disease (risk of developing a disease), and for screening (for subclinical disease), diagnosis (identify overt disease), disease staging (evaluate disease severity), prognosis (predicting future disease evolution, recurrence and complications), monitoring therapy efficacy and therapy response. Nonetheless, whether the addition of new proposed single biomarkers or multibiomarker panels can provide substantial improvement of traditional risk models is still discussed. Thus, further advances in CV biomarker identification and development remains an important area of research. Among available candidates, oxidative and inflammatory biomarkers are pivotal in the risk and development of CVD. In this context, also gender issues are critical, as gender is known to be associated to differences in many biomarkers, likely related, almost in part, to the presence of estrogen and their antioxidant effects.
Accordingly, we invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles on following hot topics and debate issues:
- Oxidative stress biomarker performance: Laboratory pearls and pitfalls
- Primordial, primary and secondary CVD prevention: Role of oxidative stress
- Gender-related differences in oxidative stress and their effects on CV prevention and disease
- Integration of oxidative stress-related biochemical markers and cardioimaging

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Antioxidants is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs).
