Special Issue "Plant Extracts: Biological and Pharmacological Activity"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2019
Prof. Dr. Raffaele Capasso
The use of plant extracts in therapy dates back many years. Plant extracts have been commonly used over the years for the treatment and prevention of chronic and acute diseases, and health promotion.
Although many plant extracts have been studied, many others have not, therefore, a Special Issue on the pharmacology of plant extracts is timely.
This Special Issue aims to comprehensively highlight the newest discoveries in plant extract products with an emphasis on pharmacological activity.
I cordially invite authors to contribute original articles, as well as reviews, that unravel new biological activity of naturally-occurring products to help create greater opportunities for their future use.
