Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Skin is an organ providing contact with the environment and protects the human body from unfavorable external factors. Inflammation of the skin has negative effects on both its function and appearance as well as the psyche, whose health is crucial for treating chronic skin illnesses. Thanks to their long history of usage and potential as sources of biologically active compounds with anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, antioxidant, and chemo-preventive effects, natural products are becoming more and more popular. As a result, natural compounds are constantly being researched for their ability to target various signaling pathways and function as bioactive agents for treating skin problems. Therefore, this Special Issue of IJMS is dedicated to original research of natural formulations and their active constituents and how they can improve inflammatory skin lesions in vitro and in vivo models and human disease patients, evaluating the role of pro-inflammatory cytokines expression and its corresponding molecular signaling pathways in psoriasis, wound healing, atopic dermatitis and more.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to: Mechanisms of action of the natural compounds against skin disorders; Future perspectives for new therapeutic targets against skin disorders; Molecular pathways involved in skin disorders; Slowing down skin aging.

Dr. Marika Cordaro
