About this Research Topic
A more thourough knowledge of mechanisms evoked by oxidative stress will provide a better understanding of the signalling processes leading to pathological remodelling and organ failure, thereby potentially enabling early identification, prevention, and characterization of novel drug targets.
This Research Topic will analyze the role of oxidative stress in the formation and development of atherosclerosis. An increase in knowledge of the relationship between oxygen and the atherosclerosis process may help in understanding biological processes. This new knowledge could bring a novel prospective for treatment and clinical management.
The Topic Editors would like to encourage the submission of original articles and reviews. Original articles are welcome either as clinical or biological-basic science research, also considering the new frontier of Mendelian randomization. Reviews, may have the same topic.
Keywords: atherosclerosis, oxidative stress, plaques, inflammation
