Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) continue to be one of the main causes of death in the population. “Middle-aged” people (between 45 and 64 years old) and elderly people (> 64 years old) shoulder most of the burden of CVD. In this sense, it is imperative to understand the mechanisms underlying its pathogenesis in an attempt to develop efficient therapies and reduce the burden of CVD [1].

Much attention has been paid to the biological role of sex and immune-metabolic status in relation to CVD predisposition and response to therapy. This is due to the fact that women generally have a lower risk of developing CVD compared to men of similar age only until menopause [1,2], leading to the hypothesis that the menopausal transition contributes to the increased risk of CVD [3]. The menopausal transition is marked by the aging of the hormonal axis [4], gonadal response leading to immune-metabolic imbalance which may result mainly in cardiovascular implication [5].
