Special Issue "Antioxidants in Veterinary Medicine"
A special issue of Antioxidants (ISSN 2076-3921).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2021).
As in Human Medicine, antioxidants are widely used in Veterinary Medicine for different purposes in both food-producing animals and pets. Nowadays, together with the more classical examples, such as selenium and vitamin E, the supplement of the animal diet with phytogenic additives rich in flavonoids, phenolic acids and lignans is widely investigated by the scientific community.
In food-producing animals, antioxidants can improve not only the animal’s health but also can offer a suitable tool to ameliorate the quality of the deriving foodstuffs. Additionally, in the scientific literature, several papers related to the possible protective effects exerted by natural antioxidants on reducing the toxic effects of mycotoxins are reported. Furthermore, antioxidants have been used in small animal practice for the treatments of conditions related to the redox imbalance (e.g., osteoarthritis, canine cognitive dysfunction, renal failure) or to counteract the side effects of certain drugs (e.g., the thyrostatic methimazole).
As the interest on this topic is increasing, I am pleased to invite you to submit your current research findings or a review article in this Special Issue, focused on the role of antioxidants in Veterinary Medicine from the clinical point of view, as well as through the investigation of their mechanisms of action. For these reasons, the submitted papers can deal with both in vitro and in vivo studies related to the antioxidant supplementation in the diet of food-producing animals and pets.
