Natural plant extracts are widely used in traditional and modern medicine as a source of many secondary metabolites with potent anticancer, antioxidant, immunomodulatory, antimicrobial, anti-inflammation, hypoglycemic or hypocholesterolemic properties. Many of them are components of drugs used in everyday treatments of different internal and skin diseases. Simultaneously, many plant extracts and secondary metabolites are still not well known, and their biological and pharmacological activities are extensively studied, thus showing their potential healing value and usefulness in phytotherapy.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present scientific papers describing modern in vitro, in vivo and ex vivo studies on natural plant extracts and their applications in a wide range of biomedicine. Phytochemistry of active natural products with studies on their mechanisms of biological and pharmacological action, the possibility of using plant extracts in any biological and medical field, or other relevant issues can be discussed.
