Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Chronic and degenerative disease (CDD) are non-infectious and non-transmissible diseases of long duration and slow progression, including obesity, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, chronic respiratory diseases, inflammatory bowel diseases, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, neurodegenerative disease, and many cancers. The prevalence of CDDs is rising rapidly. In addition to a high mortality rate, CDDs are also disabling. A strategy is urgently needed to prevent and control CDDs.
The effects of diet compounds on metabolic pathways related to CDDs is currently under investigation, and is leading the traditional nutritional counselling to a more complex approach based on -omic sciences, opening a new perspective in nutritional science.
I invite authors to submit original research and review articles that address the progress and current understanding of the response of CDDs to bioactive molecule intake, as well as the effects of gene polymorphism, gene expression, plasma lipidome, and different interactions on absorption, transport, and nutrient metabolism, to support the protective role of personalized diet in disease prevention and therapy.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Role of mediterranean diet in chronic non comunicable disease;
- Role of chetogenic diet in chronic degenerative disease;
- Nutrigenomic, nutripegenomic, and lipidomic approach in dietotherapy;
- Personalized nutrition;
- Beneficial effects of immunotherapy in cancer diseases;
- Role of diet on gut microbiota;
- Possible beneficial effects of bioactive molecule in chronic degenerative disease.

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 semimonthly 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 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
