Fishes : Special Issue "Fish and Inflammation"

Dear Colleagues,

Fish have a great positive impact on cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). Linking fish consumption to CVDs was first established through the seven-country study and today we know that fish components have strong cardioprotective and anti-inflammatory properties. In this Special Issue, we would like to present the latest research on fish consumption and its impact on inflammation-related chronic diseases in humans, e.g., CVDs. In vitro and ex vivo studies are equally welcome.
We would be pleased to solicit manuscripts pertaining to original research, mini and full reviews, short communications, as well as perspectives, which address any aspect of fish, CVDs and inflammation.
Submissions are invited that include, but are not limited to:
  • Fish diet and its impact on the nutritional value of fish
  • Fish intake and development of CVDs
  • Specific fish components (e.g., polar lipids, omega-3 fatty acids) and their anti-inflammatory properties
  • Bioactive compounds from the seafood chain
