Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Modern people are unable to stay healthy and maintain a good immune status due to many reasons such as stress, environmental pollution, urbanization, etc. Natural product-based bioactive compounds research is necessary for maintaining homeostasis, which is the ability or tendency to maintain immune stability in an organism to compensate for environmental changes.

This Special Issue seeks papers about bioactive compounds acting on the immune system including those with antioxidative and antiglycation activities by using scientific research methodology with in vitro or in vivo evaluation systems. We also welcome high-quality systematic reviews or meta-analysis papers related to these topics. I would be very happy if this Special Issue serves as a trigger for considering more effective ways of bioactive compound research in the future.

Prof. Dr. Choong Hwan Lee
