Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Natural products may be the oldest form of medicine in human history. In particular, the types of medicine and functional foods using natural compounds are increasing. The aging of society due to the extension of life expectancy is one of the reasons treatments using natural compounds are receiving attention. As the elderly population increases, the number of patients with chronic and degenerative diseases does as well. These diseases have a high risk of side effects due to the nature of taking medicine for extended periods. Therefore, the relatively high safety and low side effects of natural products are very advantageous in the treatment of chronic diseases in this aging society. For these reasons, this Special Issue aims to identify bioactive compounds from natural products for the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases through signaling pathways in vitro or in vivo. We invite you to contribute your current work to this Special Issue as original research articles, review articles, and short communications.

Dr. Dong-Sung Lee
