Aims and scope

Cardiovascular Diabetology considers manuscripts on all aspects of the diabetes/cardiovascular interrelationship and the metabolic syndrome; this includes clinical, genetic, experimental, pharmacological, epidemiological and molecular biology research.

Editors' quotes

"Since the American Heart Association stated in 1999 that "diabetes is a cardiovascular disease", many revolutionary events took place in the rapidly evolving field of cardiovascular diabetology. The initial 'bridal' between heart diseases and diabetes is at present a vast and complex interdisciplinary texture which includes innovative biotechnological approaches, such as genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, molecular biometrics, bioinformatics, customized therapies and various additional sophisticated practices. Our journal endeavors to be a harbinger of these fascinating advances."

Professor Enrique Fisman, Editor-in-Chief, Cardiovascular Diabetology

"A strong correlation between cardiovascular disease and diabetes is now well established. The American Heart Association considers that individuals with insulin resistance or diabetes are more likely to fall victim to heart disease or stroke. Cardiovascular Diabetology is the world's foremost journal specifically devoted to this issue. Submitted manuscripts may report any aspect of laboratory, animal, or human research related to diabetes and its cardiovascular complications"
