Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Natural products are good sources of bioactive metabolites which may induce different effects on cells, tissues, and organs of a living organism. These natural metabolites have a wide spectrum of biological activities that depend on their unique core structure attached to various substituent groups. As a result, numerous researchers focused on structural modification and synthesis of natural product-based compounds leading to the development of new bioactive-derived natural compounds. Furthermore, this bioactive-derived natural compounds have been tested in vitro and in vivo to further unveil their underlying mechanisms of action.

This special issue aims to publish recent original research or reviews on potential novel compounds, including natural and synthetic derivatives, that possess potent bioactivities and assess their mechanisms of action. The special focus on bioactivities is, but not limited to antioxidant, anti-cancer, antiinflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-diabetic, anti-Alzheimer’s disease, and immunomodulatory effects. This issue will bring together chemists, toxicologist, pharmacologist, biologists, computeraided drug design scientist, pre-clinicians, and clinicians in a multidisciplinary report about the multiple applications of potential lead compounds.
