This Special Issue is related to the 4th International Symposium on Phytochemicals in Medicine and Food (4-ISPMF), which will be held at Xi’an, 25–30 June, 2020. 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 the prevention and management of modern diseases, such as cancers, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. This Special Issue will shape the future research directions regarding this important phytomedicine source. Our purpose is to feature high-quality, advanced research and knowledge, contributed by various research groups working on phytochemicals. We invite researchers including non‒participants of 4-ISPMF to contribute reviews and reports of their recent work on the chemistry, biology, and biotechnology of phytochemicals.
The Special Issue will focus on phytochemicals in medicine and food, including following aspects:
- Natural products for preventing and managing modern diseases.
- Mechanisms of phytochemicals for the therapy and chemoprevention of modern diseases.
- Importance of natural phytochemicals in medicine and food
- Structure–activity relationship and modeling for natural drug design
- Natural antioxidants and human health
- New strategies for using natural products to manage diseases
- Pharmacokinetics and biotransformation of phytochemicals
- Nutrition and metabolism of phytochemicals
