Special Issue (Ongoing): Lifestyle, social environment, physiological environment and cardiovascular disease Edited by Prof. Xuerui Tan

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD), including hypertension, heart failure, myocardial infarction, myocardial ischemia, and other related diseases, are the major threats to human health in the world. Some research indicated that life factors such as diet, smoking, exercise, alcohol, sleep, BMI were associated with the prevention, development, outcomes, and rehabilitation of the CVD. These studies give us much inspiration and help us better explore prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. However, we believe that related research and experiments need to be more in-depth and detailed, more basic and more representative, and are urgently needed and necessary. In consideration of this, we plan to launch this Special Issue. Through this, we hope to bring more attention to the interaction between lifestyle factors and CVD, for example, how our eating habits and exercising habits affect CVD and vice versa. In the meantime, we also focus on the influence and intervention of mental and psychological factors on CVD. Furthermore, there are many similar secrets in this field waiting to reveal. We also hope that this SI can bring inspiration to relevant researchers and doctors and that the progress in this field can help people better cope with the risks and threats of CVD.

For submission, please go to [email protected] or submit online through the website: https://www.heartmindjournal.org/submitarticle.asp before 31st, July, 2021. Articles in any formats including original research, editorials, reviews, clinical reports, and commentaries will be considered.

Special Issue (Ongoing): Psychosomatic diseases and Covid-19 Edited by Prof. Jian'an Wang

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are closely related to psychological changes. Many cardiovascular diseases are listed as psychosomatic diseases, such as hypertension, arrhythmia and so on. Studies have shown that reasonable psychological regulation can effectively improve cardiovascular function, and the improvement of cardiovascular function can also promote the emotional stability of patients. We believe that applying psychological research to cardiovascular medicine is urgent and necessary, and that this correlative research needs to be more in-depth, more detailed, more fundamental and more broadly based. In consideration of this, we plan to launch this SI. Through this, we hope to draw more attention to the relationship between psychology and CVD, focusing on the impact of psychological factors on CVD, especially the psychophysiological changes during the period of COVID-19 and the impact on CVD. In addition, we feel that there are many discoveries yet to be made in this field. We also hope that this SI can bring inspiration to relevant researchers and doctors, and anticipate that making progress in this field will help people better understand the concept of psychosomatic integration.

Special Issue (Ongoing): Recognition and treatment of psychosomatic diseases Edited by Prof. Qingshan Geng

A psychosomatic disorder is a physical disease that is thought to be caused or made worse by mental factors. Taking chest pain as an example, it may be caused by stress without indication of physical disease. Psychosomatic disorders can have mild to severe effects on life quality, from interfering with the average ability to function to causing physical or mental disability. At any given time, a person’s mental state can affect the degree of severity of physical disease. Various factors may play a role in psychosomatic disorders, such as personality traits, genetic or environmental family influences, biological factors, learned behavior, and more. A broad range of physical diseases and conditions may be especially exacerbated by mental factors. These include skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, high blood pressure, heart problems, and others. Psychosomatic disorders frequently affect the respiratory and gastrointestinal systems as well as the cardiovascular system. Given this, we plan to launch this special issue to promote discovery in this field. By launching this issue, we hope to bring psychosomatic diseases more to the attention of doctors and help the development of better identification and treatment of psychosomatic diseases.

Special Issue (Ongoing): Cardiac Biomarkers in Diabetes Mellitus Edited by Prof. Alexander E. Berezin

Alexander E. Berezin, Professor, MD, PhD, Internal Medicine Department, State Medical University, Zaporozhye, Ukraine

Diabetes mellitus is one of the most prevalent metabolic diseases in developing and developed countries. Cardiac complications of the disease are loosely associated with hyperglycemia, lipid toxicity, endothelial dysfunction, metabolic memory phenomenon, accelerating atherosclerosis, microvascular inflammation and altered immune response. Although micro and macro vascular complications appear prior to cardiac failure in diabetics, there is a need in high sensitive and specific biomarkers that will be able to predict diabetes-induced cardiac damage at early stages. The Special Issue is depicting a role of old and new cardiac biomarkers in diagnosis and prognostication of cardiac complications in diabetes mellitus.
The Special Issue will include research and review articles, as well as editorial comment regarding contemporary state-of-art in biomarker-based strategy in diabetic cardiomyopathy and heart failure.

Special Issue Outline:

    1. Molecular mechanisms of diabetes mellitus-induced cardiomyopathy
    2. Predictive biomarkers of macro vascular complications of 2 type diabetes mellitus
    3. Prognostication of cardiovascular outcomes in diabetes mellitus
    4. Old and new cardiac biomarkers in diabetes-induced cardiomyopathy
    5. The endothelial dysfunction, hypercoagulability and inflammation and their biomarkers in the development of vascular complications in type 1 and type 2 diabetes
    6. Metabolic biomarkers in diabetes-induced heart failure
    7. Diabetic microvascular complication and heart failure developing
    8. Biomarker-guided therapy in diabetes mellitus
    9. Prognostication of heart failure development in diabetes mellitus
    10. Acute coronary syndrome and acute heart failure in diabetics: the role of biomarkers
    11. ST2 in diabetes mellitus-indicted cardiomyopathy
    12. Inflammatory biomarkers in prediction of cardiac complications in diabetes mellitus
