Special Issue "Phytochemical Antioxidants and Health"
A special issue of Antioxidants (ISSN 2076-3921).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2019
It is widely accepted that free-radical-induced oxidative damage is involved with various human diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, neural disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, obesity, and various cancers. Antioxidants are substances that delay or inhibit oxidative damage when present in small quantities compared to an oxidizable substrate. Therefore, antioxidants can help in disease prevention by effectively quenching free radicals or inhibiting damage caused by them. It is recognized that the health effects of natural products including food and herbal medicines are generally associated with antioxidative activities or free radical scavenging properties of phytochemicals.
We invite you to contribute your latest research findings or a review article to this Special Issue, which will bring together current research concerning and critical thinking on phytochemical antioxidants, and the role that antioxidants can play in reducing oxidative stress in various disease statuses. Your contribution can include either in vitro or in vivo studies relating to any of the following topics: Antioxidative activities of phytochemicals; molecular mechanisms of phytochemical antioxidants in disease prevention; and the role of phytochemicals or antioxidants in signaling, cell metabolism, cell cycle, cellular stress, and chronic diseases.
We look forward to your contribution.
