This Special Issue will comprise manuscripts of papers presented at the 2015 Phytochemical Society of Europe meeting in collaboration with the Phytochemical Society of - International Symposium on Phytochemicals in Medicine and Food (ISPMF 2015, http://cmsmag.shnu.edu.cn/Default.aspx?tabid=14688&language=en-US).
This Special Issue seeks an updated and new base of knowledge on the phytochemicals in medicines and food. Evidence from epidemiological investigation shows that natural phytochemicals have received increased attention due to their considerable benefits in preventing and managing of modern diseases, such as cancers, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. This Special Issue will shape the future research direction for this important nutrients source. Our purpose is to feature high-quality, advanced research and knowledge, contributed by various research groups all around the world working on phytochemicals. We invite researchers to contribute reviews and reports of their recent work on the chemistry, biology, nutrition, and biotechnology of phytochemicals. Please note, registration is obligatory for acceptance.
It will focus on phytochemicals in medicine and food, including following aspects:
1. Natural products for the prevention and therapy of modern diseases.
2. Nutrients from plants for the therapy and chemoprevention of modern diseases.
3. Importance of the natural phytochemicals in medicine and food
4. QSAR and modeling for natural drugs design.
5. Natural antioxidants and human health.
6. New strategy of using natural products for managing diseases.
7. Pharmacokinetics and biotransformation of phytochemicals
8. Food-medicine/phytochemicals interaction
9. Nutrition and metabolism of phytochemicals
