Special Issue: Vascular Contributions to Healthy Aging and Dementia
This special issue will consider Review, Mini-review, Original Research, Opinion, Commentary, or Perspective articles focused on the link of vascular contributions to aging and dementia, including Alzheimer Disease. This research topic is to promote biomedical research on better understanding age-related changes of vascular and glymphatic systems and to facilitate research exchanges across different fields (e.g., imaging, molecular biology, pathology and clinical correlation and treatments) on this topic.

Liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) and the ensuing
biomolecular condensates/ membrane-less organelles are currently gaining
acceptance as a potent mechanism of diverse biological activities and are of
great interest to the scientific community. The
aberrant phase separation brought on by disease-associated mutations and
post-translational modifications is linked to various diseases, including
cancer, viral infections, and neurodegenerative diseases. Our knowledge of the
LLPS is still in its infancy despite notable advances. This special issue will
consider and showcase the high-quality research work providing novel insights
on the Liquid-liquid phase separation in health
and disease. The editor welcomes submissions of Original Research,
Reviews, Mini-reviews, Opinion, or perspective articles related to this topic.

The interest in the human microbiota, which supports a variety of physiological processes, including digestion and the synthesis of vital metabolites, has increased dramatically in recent years. A critical role of the microbiota is the interface with the immune system favoring its normal development and modulating its responses versus any nature pathogens. However, in the case of dysbiosis or immune dysregulation, this Microbiota-Immunity axis can significantly influence the pathogenesis of several diseases, including autoimmune, cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, and cancer. In addition, the changes in the immune system associated with age (named immunosenescence), has been gathering interest in the scientific and health-care sectors alike. Given the rising average age and the associated failure to raise healthy life expectancy, the growth in its recognition is essential. Finally, it is well recognized that the gut microbiome is a causative factor in ageing-related health loss and in numerous non-communicable diseases in all age groups. Some age-linked and disease-linked compositional and functional changes overlap, while others are distinct. So, the goal of this Special Issue is to gather various publications (especially review, editorial, commentary, opinion and perspective) focusing on the role of the Microbiota-Immunity axis in the all human diseases aging-associated and especially the non-communicable diseases.

Inflammation is the primary pathological feature of various brain diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, viral infections, stroke, traumatic brain injury and multiple sclerosis etc. Microglia, astrocytes, and peripheral immune cells are key regulators of inflammatory responses in the central nervous system. The interaction among these cells is also very complicated and important for mediating neuroinflammation. A better understanding of the roles of these cells in inflammation after brain disease is essential for developing effective therapies. This special issue will consider Review, Mini-review, Original Research, Opinion, Commentary, or Perspective articles providing novel insights on glial cells and immune cells mediated neuroinflammation in brain disease.
