About this Research Topic
Cardiovascular disease, a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels, are the leading cause of death globally. It is estimated that by 2030, more than 23 million people will die from cardiovascular disease annually. It has been reported that the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases is related to a diverse number of endocrine factors, such as renin-angiotensin system, endothelin system, natriuretic peptide, nitric oxide, kinase-releasing enzyme kinase system, calcitonin gene-related peptide family, adenosine, cardiovascular neuropeptide, growth factor, and adipocytokines, etc. Furthermore, myocardial aging/heart failure, a kind of cardiovascular diseases, is a common, costly, and potentially fatal condition. In 2015, it affected about 40 million people globally. Studies have shown that the occurrence, progression, treatment, and prognosis of myocardial aging/heart failure is related to many endocrine factors.
This Research Topic will solicit Original Research, Reviews, Systematic Reviews, and, General Commentaries that cover the themes of cardiovascular disease, myocardial aging, cardiac failure, RAS, endothelin, natriuretic peptide, etc.
