Chronic inflammation increases the risk of several serious human diseases. Plant-derived phytochemicals have emerged as novel agents for protecting against chronic disorders. Owing to the diversity of phytochemicals, they cover a wide spectrum of therapeutic indications against cancer, inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases and have been a productive source of lead compounds for the development of novel medications. An important direction for future investigation is to further optimize the basic experiments to predict clinical results. Combinatorial strategies which target multiple mechanisms, such as increasing anti-inflammatory efficacy and triggering a response of innate immune system, may offer the better chance for clinically meaningful prevention. This special issue aims to identify lead compounds for inflammation-related diseases through in-depth mechanism studies of medicinal plant components.
