Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Much scientific evidence points out strong correlations between inflammation and overall health and between the incidence of inflammation and disease progression and prognosis. Inflammation is involved in the pathogenesis of many chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular and bowel diseases, diabetes, arthritis, obesity, endometriosis, and cancer.

The scientific community has recognized the importance of natural bioactive compounds and dietary products with proven capabilities to reduce or reverse inflammation in preventing and treating inflammatory diseases. Anti-inflammatory nutritional intervention is believed to encompass great potential in the treatment of inflammatory-related disorders. Therefore, this Special Issue is devoted to collecting the newest research findings from clinical trials and preclinical in vitro and in vivo studies on the anti-inflammatory effects of natural dietary ingredients and discussing their potential application in nutritional recommendations for patients with inflammatory diseases.

Publicly available articles from this collection will enable the dissemination of the latest research results among researchers, clinical dietitians, and patients.

Dr. Anna Olejnik
