Special Issue "Molecular Pathways for Vascular Risk in Diabetes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
Cardiovascular disease remains the main cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with diabetes. It is now generally acknowledged that diabetes is a continuum of various stages of the condition, with each having a different vascular risk. The reasons for the adverse vascular profile in diabetes are related to a combination of more extensive atherosclerotic disease coupled with an enhanced thrombotic environment.
This Special Issue is particularly interested in collecting research articles, comprehensive reviews, or short communications in the following topics, but all other related topics are welcomed.
- Molecular mechanisms linking complements proteins with increased thrombosis risk, particularly in diabetes;
- Hypoglycemia, glycemic variability, and vascular pathology in diabetes;
- Novel insights into platelet function/dysfunction in diabetes: Implications for future anti-thrombotic therapies;
- Inflammation and atherothrombosis: relevance in diabetes;
- Molecular mechanisms for the vascular and cardiac benefits of sodium glucose transporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT2).

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.
