Atherosclerosis: Open Access (Omics Publishing S.L) has announced almost 50% discount on article processing charge to commemorate its 10th Anniversary.

Atherosclerosis: Open Access is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that focuses and welcomes submissions on all aspects of Coronary Heart disease, Stroke, Peripheral Arterial Disease, Chronic Kidney Disease, arteriosclerosis, Coronary Atherosclerosis, intracranial atherosclerosis etc.  

It gives us great pleasure to announce the call for paper on the occasion of 10th Anniversary of the Journal at special and hefty discount of up to 50 percent on one-time article processing charge. Prospective academicians and scientists are encouraged to utilize this opportunity to get their articles reviewed, processed and published at relatively faster pace and at lower charges. In addition to this, the authors who publish with us during the year-long celebrations will also be eligible for academic awards recommended by the editorial panel.

The Archive page contains wide variety of articles such as Research / Review / Case reports / short communication / Mini review / Prospective / Letter to Editors Etc. We would like introduce a Review Article which has been spread to the widest audience of experts; and thus increased in readership, citations and altimetry score.

Title: “Vascular and Cardiac Valve Calcification in Chronic Kidney Disease

Abstract: Vascular calcification (VC) and cardiac valve calcification (CVC) are the important causes to increase the risk of cardiovascular events in terms of chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Once VC and CVC considered a passive form of dead or dying cells, it has now emerged as a pathology results from an active and highly regulated cellular process. Recently, mechanisms of VC have been further elucidated and many of the pathways involved could be amplified in CKD patients. In particular, FGF-23/Klotho axis, Wnt pathways, PI3K/Akt signaling, P38MAPK signaling pathway, and microRNAs have been shown to be impaired among patients with CKD and could play a role during vascular calcification. Furthermore, risks for CVC in CKD patients and molecular mechanisms related to it were verified by several researchers. The scope of the present review is to summarize the risk factors and pathophysiological mechanisms potentially involved in the link between CKD and the progression of VC and CVC.
