Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Stress and inflammation are intertwined. Both play a significant role in various disease processes. Stress can trigger inflammatory responses which broadly impacts health, while chronic inflammation may induce stress responses, leading to an array of disorders. The heart of these processes involves complex molecular networks and signaling pathways not yet fully understood. This special issue invites submissions on the molecular intricacies of inflammation and stress pathology. We encourage original research, review articles, and brief reports illuminating stress-induced inflammation mechanisms and the reverse impact of inflammation on stress responses. The issue aims to encapsulate diverse research, from molecular underpinnings of inflammation-stress interactions to novel molecular targets for therapeutic interventions. We particularly encourage submissions which further the understanding of stress modulation of inflammatory pathways and the role of inflammatory mediators in stress-associated pathology. This issue strives to provide a deeper understanding of the relationship between inflammation and stress pathology, with the hope of sparking further research and development of novel therapeutic strategies.
