Natural compounds have long been providing inspiration for medicine and health products. In particular, bioactives from marine products provide ample opportunities for us to develop pharmaceuticals and/or nutraceuticals.
A great deal of efforts have been invested in the extraction, identification, screening and confirmation of bioactives from marine products. Some compounds have been successfully developed into drugs. For example, triterpenoids extracted from sea sponge have become an anticancer drug. Other marine bioactives are being used as health or beauty products in our daily life, such as fucoidan and alginate. Biomolecules from marine products with various bioactivities has become a popular research field that is yielding interesting results every day. Therefore, this ”Bioactives from Marine Products” Special Issue aims to gather the most relevant and new research articles in the field, including but not limited to the chemical and biological extraction, identification, screening and testing of marine bioactives; the pre-clinical and clinical investigation of marine bioactives in either nutrition or medicine; and the development of bioactives into nutraceuticals or pharmaceuticals. We hope to capture the progress and development in this important field. It is also a good chance for scientists who are working in this field to showcase their recent findings and attract the attention of their peers and the wider readership of this journal.
