Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The success of the first volume of this Special Issue, entitled "Antiprotozoal Activity of Natural Products" (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/antibiotics/special_issues/anti_protozoal_activity), encourages us to open a second volume focused on the same topic.

As a continuation of the first Special Issue, the second volume will gather review papers and original articles dealing with the potential antiprotozoal activities of plant secondary metabolites, including different classes such as terpenoids, alkaloids, and phenolics. This Special Issue welcomes contributions on the following topics:

  • Phytochemical analysis and biological evaluation (in vitro and/or in vivo studies) of plant extracts/essential oils and isolated compounds.
  • Mode of action (MoA) studies of natural products.
  • Structure–activity relationship (SAR) studies, including hemi-synthesized molecules.
  • Synergistic and antagonistic studies of mixtures of natural products.
  • Development of new antiprotozoal agent formulations.
