Featured series: Metabolic regulation of lipids and fatty acids and risk of cardiometabolic disease

New Content Item (1)We are proud to announce a new thematic series, guest edited by Vibeke Telle-Hansen. This collection of papers addresses the role of lipids and lipid metabolism in cancer. We warmly welcome all articles and reviews on solid and non-solid tumors. We aim to include original research and up-to-date reviews on individual regulation of lipids and fatty acids, in relation to different risk profiles (metabotypes) of cardiometabolic disease. You can read more about the scope, here.

Featured series: Sphingomyelin- Key Roles in Health and Disease

New Content Item (1)We are proud to announce a new thematic series, guest edited by Rashika El Ridi and Junfei Jin. We wish to welcome articles, including original research, narrative reviews, systematic reviews and meta-analysis, and mini-reviews which establish the relation between sphingomyelin metabolism and cancer immune evasion, thus allowing the discovery of unprecedented approaches and new molecules for cancer prevention and therapy. Find out more about the scope here.

Featured series: Role of lipids and lipid metabolism in cancer

New Content Item (1)We are proud to announce a new thematic series, guest edited by Christa Buechler. This collection of papers in this addresses the role of lipids and lipid metabolism in cancer. There is emerging evidence that lipids and lipid metabolism are essential for cancer growth. The identification of suitable serum lipid biomarkers as diagnostic tools is in the focus of current research. Lipid metabolism may also become a target for cancer therapy. We warmly welcome all articles and reviews on solid and non-solid tumors.. Find out more about the scope here.

Aims and scope

Lipids in Health and Disease is an open access, peer-reviewed, journal that publishes articles on all aspects of lipids: their biochemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, role in health and disease, and the synthesis of new lipid compounds.

Lipids in Health and Disease is aimed at all scientists, health professionals and physicians interested in the area of lipids. Lipids are defined here in their broadest sense, to include: cholesterol, essential fatty acids, saturated fatty acids, phospholipids, inositol lipids, second messenger lipids, enzymes and synthetic machinery that is involved in the metabolism of various lipids in the cells and tissues, and also various aspects of lipid transport, etc. In addition, the journal also publishes research that investigates and defines the role of lipids in various physiological processes, pathology and disease. In particular, the journal aims to bridge the gap between the bench and the clinic by publishing articles that are particularly relevant to human diseases and the role of lipids in the management of various diseases.
