The prevalence of heart failure (HF) consequent to adverse cardiac remodeling continues to rise, increasing the rate of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Cardiovascular adverse remodeling is a complex process involving calcium (Ca2+) mishandling, inflammation, and cardiac myocyte death, among other mechanisms. Although substantial progress has been made and a significant amount of data has accumulated in recent years, many aspects of inflammation, the dysregulation of the intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i), and the role of miRNAs in post-transcriptional gene regulation remain unexplored. The objective of this Special Issue is to highlight the impact of inflammation and [Ca2+]i mishandling on adverse cardiac remodeling. In addition, this Special Issue will also discuss the role of miRNAs in the post-transcriptional regulation of genes associated with [Ca2+]i and/or inflammation, which can influence cardiac remodeling and HF progression. We welcome original research and up-to-date review articles on any of these aspects.

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 Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English.
