This Special Issue is related to 3rd International Symposium on Phytochemicals in Medicine and Food (3-ISPMF), which will be held at the Kunming University of Science and Technology, 25–30 August, 2018. 3-ISPMF is sponsored by the Phytochemical Society of Europe (PSE), International Society for Chinese Medicine (ISCM), and the Phytochemical Society of Europe (PSA).
This Special Issue seeks updated and new knowledge on the phytochemicals in medicine and food. Evidence from epidemiological investigations shows that natural phytochemicals have received increased attention due to their considerable benefits in preventing and managing modern diseases, such as cancers, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. This Special Issue will shape the future research direction for this important phytomedicine source. Our purpose is to feature high quality advanced research and knowledge, contributed by various research groups around the world, working on phytochemicals. We invite researchers to contribute reviews and reports of their recent work on the chemistry, biology and biotechnology of phytochemicals.
The Special Issue will focus on the phytochemicals in medicine and food, and will include the following aspects:
- Natural products for the prevention and therapy of modern diseases.
- Mechanism of phytochemicals for therapy and chemoprevention of modern diseases.
- Importance of natural phytochemicals in medicine and food
- QSAR and modeling for natural drugs design.
- Natural antioxidants and human health.
- New strategy of using natural products for managing diseases
- Pharmacokinetics and biotransformation of phytochemicals
