Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Natural products lethal to animals (toxins) provide a rich source of leads for new therapeutics for diseases that range from cancer to diabetes to pain. This special issue on "Toxins as Therapeutics" focuses on toxins and toxin inspired leads, including the emergence of venoms as an underutilized source of highly evolved bioactive peptides, that have clinical potential.
