Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Terrestrial and marine environments are inexhaustible sources of compounds and active extracts that have been employed in medicine since ancient times. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect new approaches concerning compounds and extracts isolated from natural products and their biological activity, with a focus on anti-inflammatory pathways. Thus, this Special Issue welcomes full papers, short communications, and review articles on natural (from terrestrial or marine sources) secondary metabolites of microorganisms and plants that have significant anti-inflammatory activity.

This Special Issue will serve as a reference text for researchers and academics, as well as for those studying natural products and their pharmacological activities. Researchers working in the field of natural products and related pathways are encouraged to publish their recent findings in this Special Issue of Life.
