About the Journal
Cardiovascular Pharmacology International is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes original basic human studies, original animal studies, and original bench research with potential clinical application to cardiovascular pharmacology and therapeutics. The focus of the experimental studies is translational research. The journal also publishes review articles on basic research, clinical research, editorials, commentaries, points of view, and controversies. Selected journal supplements will also be published. Future focus will include cardioprotective therapies, stem cell therapy, regenerative cardiology, therapies for preventive cardiology (risk factor management), and antiarrhythmic therapies. Selected journal supplements will also be published.
Every informative issue of Cardiovascular Pharmacology International Journal offers cardiologists, clinical pharmacologists and researchers involved in disease relevant clinical and experimental investigations of newer cardiovascular drugs and other therapeutic options.
