Journal highlights - September issue

In our regular feature, Editor-in-Chief Arnold von Eckardstein highlights interesting articles from recent issues of Atherosclerosis journal.

The highlights from the September issue 264, is focused on peripheral artery disease (PAD), a manifestation of atherosclerosis, which compromises quality of life and limits life expectancy both by itself and by its frequent confounding with coronary and cerebrovascular artery disease.

PAD is increasingly targeted by research, first to improve its clinical management and second to exploit its accessibility for diagnostics already in the asymptomatic phase. This issue of Atherosclerosis contains several articles reporting on the validation of biomarkers of PAD, frequently towards clinical outcome either of PAD itself or associated diseases.
