Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Improving diet is instrumental for the prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD), which is already for many decades a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. However, the number of large randomized controlled trials with appropriate follow-up periods and with cardiovascular events as endpoints is limited, as they require inclusion of thousands of participants with very long follow-up periods. As an alternative approach, the effects of dietary interventions on vascular function and cardiometabolic risk markers as surrogate risk markers of CVD can be investigated. These markers are associated with future cardiovascular events and can also be used to demonstrate CVD benefits.

This Special Issue now welcomes original research and reviews that focus on the effects of bioactive ingredients - or specific foods or dietary patterns - on vascular function and cardiometabolic risk in humans. Increasing our knowledge in this area will be helpful for the development of evidence-based nutrition guidelines for the prevention and management of CVD.

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.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
