Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues

Phytochemicals are biologically active compounds found in plants, with a variety of physiological regulatory functions such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor and immune enhancement, which can prevent and treat many diseases in human beings. Currently, more and more phytochemicals are being discovered and applied in the treatment of cancer and inflammation. In this Special Issue, we are collecting papers regarding the role and molecular mechanisms of natural phytochemicals in inflammation and cancer treatment. Papers containing only extraction data will not be accepted, because the focus should be on the chemical composition of ingredients and, more specifically, in describing their mechanism of action in improving human nutrition
