Special Issue "Antioxidants: Infant Nutrition"
A special issue of Antioxidants (ISSN 2076-3921). This special issue belongs to the section "Health Outcomes of Antioxidants and Oxidative Stress".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2018).
Antioxidants in infant nutrition are a combination/integration of the chemistry of free radicals and the different ways in which nutrient requirements of the newborn can be met. With the advent of assays and technology from the free radical side, and the interest in subtle ways in which newborn nutrition can affect the whole of the life cycle, an opportunity arises to discover a new paradigm. The journal has offered us the opportunity to collate articles addressing this issue. We are looking for novel research in these areas that will expand our perspective in both fields. Of importance is the way in which the developmental biochemical processes can interact with both optimal food intakes so that all pathways can be examined.
The fact that these early life interactions play a role in both early and late development, makes this research important indeed. This Special Issue will publish original research papers and reviews on all aspects of the interaction between oxidant status and infant nutrition. The oxidant status of both the infant themselves and the foods and subsequent effects will be prioritized. As there is not an excess of this type of research in full-term infants the status of premature infants will be included.
