Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are glad to announce to keep this 2nd season special issue inherited outstanding success of previous Special Issue. Despite outstanding 21 papers were published in 1st season Special Issue, we have shown the possibility to publish the good quality papers more, appropriated in this Special Issue. We sincerely encourage to all of related researchers having an interest for this Special Issue. Many natural substances with pharmacological, especially anticancer and anti-inflammatory, activity have been discovered. Despite those discoveries, there are still limitations to making those for drugs and health supplements, since the efficacy with the appropriate disease animal model, identification of their molecular mechanisms and quantification of exposures and pharmacological behaviors need to be validated. This Special Issue aims to cover a selection of research papers and reviews that expand knowledge from recently discovered natural resources with anticancer and anti-inflammatory activity to new quantitative identification of natural resources in the body. In addition, new evaluation methods for the above fields are also to be covered. Therefore, we sincerely welcome not only studies on searching novel natural compounds with anticancer and anti-inflammatory activity, but also studies on the evaluation of efficacy of natural compounds, elucidation of mechanisms of action, identification of molecular targets, enhancement of bioactivity via derivatization or pharmaceutical formulation, and the new characterization of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of known bioactive natural compounds.
