Special Issue "Advances in the Domain of Heart Failure"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2021).
Interests: dopamine; histamine; proteinphosphatases; heart failure; arrhythmias; serotonin
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The special issue will deal with original experimental studies on current or new or controversial issues in cardiac function. More specifically, manuscripts are solicited regarding molecular mechanisms (especially due to gene alterations) of systolic or diastolic heart failure or cardiac hypertrophy. The pharmacology of newer drugs or new aspects in the signal transduction of known drugs is of interest. Moreover, manuscripts describing new untoward i.e. toxic effects of drugs used in clinical practice would fall into the scope of this special edition. Furthermore, putative mechanism(s) of arrhythmias are of interest as far as these arrhythmias are secondary to heart failure and not primary arrhythmias. Another topic that may be addressed is the mechanism(s) of heart failure in ageing in humans or relevant ageing animal models. Experimental studies and up to date reviews of underlying mechanism of heart failure are deemed relevant. Finally, an overview and a critical perspective on drugs tested and being tested currently for heart failure will be awaited with interest.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. 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. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
