Special Issue in Pharmaceuticals: The 20th Anniversary of Pharmaceuticals—Advances in Natural Products
Plants have always been considered as a source of molecules useful for humans, and are still helpful in the discovery of new therapeutic agents. To date, a wide variety of extracts and/or natural compounds isolated from plants have been extensively evaluated against infections caused by viruses that can affect human health. Due to the emergence of drug-resistance or lack of vaccines, the search for new antiviral agents is needed. Authors are invited to submit original research articles, reviews, and short communications exploring recent advances in this field ranging from basic science to clinical studies. Topics include, but are not limited to, in vitro and in vivo evaluation of antiviral activities of plant extracts or compounds isolated from natural sources.
