Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Phytochemicals and nutraceuticals are chemical compounds that have tremendous antioxidant, anticancer, immunoprotective, and other therapeutic properties. Due to their immense health benefits, they have been utilized for the treatment of chronic diseases through targeted drug delivery approaches. Chronic diseases have been associated with a broad array of complications that contribute widely to mortality. The advent of modern lifestyle necessitates the exploration of therapeutic approaches from the phytochemical/nutraceutical domain that are associated with fewer adherence issues and are more economical. The molecular pathways serve as the targets for chronic diseases and thus contribute to disease mitigation and prevention. The modulatory role of these phytochemicals/nutraceuticals in stimulating or inhibiting the molecular pathways will contribute mainly to exploring the associated hidden mechanisms, thus contributing widely to the benefit of mankind.

This special issue will consider high-quality review articles on the following topics:
• Role of phytochemicals/nutraceuticals in chronic diseases
• Exploration of the molecular pathways in disease mitigation and prevention
• Revisiting the hidden therapeutic approaches associated with phytochemicals/nutraceuticals
