Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Vascular complications remain a life-limiting factor in obesity and associated diseases, such as dyslipidemia and diabetes mellitus. Despite the remarkable progress made in the last three decades, we still lack efficient therapies to halt or even reverse vascular diseases associated with obesity, diabetes mellitus and dyslipidemia. New approaches, such as high resolution lipidomics and proteomics and single-cell analyses, combined with new in silico approaches and analyses of large patient cohorts, provide new insights. Using such approaches, we are in the process of defining disease-resolving mechanisms and intra- and interorgan crosstalk as well as understanding disease priming during early life, including in utero disease priming. Such insights are expected to identify new therapeutic approaches. These aspects will be discussed during the XXII Lipid Meeting in Leipzig (9th to 11th of December 2021, www.lipidmeeting.de) and will also be addressed in this Special Issue of Nutrients.

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. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
