Pain is an essential part of life that is too hard to tolerate in some cases. So far, the most effective drugs are narcotic analgesics that cause addiction accompanied by the necessity of dose increase. Marine natural products contain a variety of biologically active compounds of different nature (proteins, peptides, small molecules, etc.) that can produce analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. Such compounds are very important for the development of analgesic drugs.
This Special Issue on “Marine Natural Products as a Source of Analgesics” will include the latest scientific research in the isolation, characterization, and development of marine natural products with analgesic properties. The manuscript should include structural characterization of compounds, in vitro studies confirming their molecular target(s,) and in vivo evaluation of analgesic effects that are not compromised by toxicity or sedation. Additionally, novel cellular and animal models for analgesic compounds screening and analysis are welcome. Reviews and research papers will be considered for publication.
