Special Issue Introduction
Vascular pathogenesis is not only the primary focus of arteriosclerosis and chronic inflammation
but also the potential severity of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) such as cytokine storm and systemic inflammation
. Indeed, sedentary lifestyles as well as exhaustive exercises induce systemic inflammation, oxidative stress and immune suppression, but these can be modulated by regular and moderate physical activities and/or nutritional supplements
. Here, a more detailed understanding is required to make robust scientific evidence and optimize effective approaches.
After the success of the previous Special Issue "Anti-Inflammatory and Antioxidant Effects of Dietary Supplementation and Lifestyle Factors
", this special issue will include both reviews and original research papers relating to the effects of lifestyle factors on subsequent inflammatory and oxidative stress responses in vascular health and disease. Articles involving human, animals and/or cellular models are welcome. Relevant and acceptable topics include, but are not limited to the following: physiological effects of various exercise modes and/or dietary interventions, e.g., pre/probiotics, chronic low-carbohydrate and high-fat diets, proteins and nutraceuticals such as phytochemical-rich food supplementation. The evaluation on the role of these factors in health and disease and the investigation on appropriate assessment parameters will also be desirable.
