We live in an era where an uncontrolled utilization of drugs and the existence of drugs with numerous side effects deliver constant pressure on an ever-growing scientific population, demanding new drugs to target inflammatory responses. Nature-derived molecules have been a long-lasting inspiration of many а scientists when searching for such solutions. Since the discovery of acetylsalicylic acid from the bark of weeping willow, efforts focused on the discovery of nature-based molecules have increased. These research attempts have mainly found their rationale in the ethnomedicinal usage of some plants, and through a series of experiments, researchers have attempted to find an activity carrier. This Special Issue invites submissions focusing on the discovery of new natural products acting as anti-inflammatory agents or the rediscovery of known molecules with new anti-inflammatory activity, as well as comprehensive reviews.
This Special Issue is led by Dr. Dušan T. Sokolović and Dr. Nikola Stojanović (Department of Physiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Niš, Niš, Serbia).

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
