With the development of science and technology, life extension and the prevention and treatment of accompanying diseases have become topics of international concern in the healthcare field, and molecular hydrogen has been identified as a safe and effective material to solve these health-related problems.
Molecular hydrogen is proposed as a medicinal gas, which has antioxidant, anti-apoptotic, and signal-regulating properties that protect cells and tissues by selectively neutralizing hydroxyl radicals. However, different diseases and associated factors have not yet been fully elucidated.
Our goal here is to determine how to improve the ability to use molecular hydrogen in oxidative stress using various enzymes in cells, animals, or humans. This issue could help with the development of new therapies and biomarkers with underlying molecular hydrogen mechanisms.
Molecular hydrogen serves as a scavenger to modify ROS and maintain metabolic oxidation–reduction reaction in various biomedical areas. It can also neutralize and convert highly active oxidants such as hydroxyl radical and peroxynitrite into water. Thus, the redox effect of molecular hydrogen is crucial to find preventive and therapeutic applications.
Recently, molecular hydrogen has begun to be applied to various diseases based on the academic mechanism of regulating the immune system and removing free radicals. It is expected to contribute to the use of molecular hydrogen in health promotion through the report of excellent research results related to molecular hydrogen.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Antioxidants is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
