In recent decades, chronic inflammation has emerged as a potentially modifiable risk factor for cardiometabolic diseases. While physiological levels of inflammatory activity represent an important biological mechanism to combat infections and repair damaged tissues, excessive inflammatory activities can damage physiological systems beyond repair. Furthermore, the low-grade inflammatory milieu from (recurrent) infections can potentially contribute to the development of cardiometabolic diseases or exacerbate existing conditions.
This Special Issue focuses on research demonstrating the nexus between infection, lifestyle, environmental exposures, chronic inflammation, and cardiometabolic diseases from a global public health perspective. Potential research topics may include (but are not limited to) reviewing the current state of the nexus and exploring epidemiological factors and public health management approaches to mitigate the impact of inflammation and cardiometabolic diseases on each other. We also encourage research that helps to understand the contribution of emerging and re-emerging infections to susceptibility or severity of cardiometabolic diseases, and research that illustrates the health system challenges in developed and developing countries.
In this Special Issue, we invite researchers in clinical practice, public health, epidemiology, health economics, immunology, and other social sciences to submit high-quality original research or systematic reviews related to the issues in this research area.

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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
