About this Research Topic
In recent years, many scientists have focused on the use of nutraceuticals for preventing cancer and neurological diseases through different mechanisms including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, mitochondrial homeostasis, autophagy regulation, and promoting neurogenesis. However, the detailed molecular mechanisms underlying their protective roles are still largely unknown. Due to the development of conventional technology, we are able to identify more novel nutraceuticals to improve human health. A better understanding of the current or novel nutraceuticals could increase the efficacy of promising nutraceuticals.
We welcome the Original Research based on Clinical Evidence that focuses on the following topics:
· Exploring new methods to isolate novel nutraceuticals;
· Identifying novel nutraceuticals to prevent cancer development or neurodegenerative diseases;
· Exploring the molecular mechanism underlying the roles of nutraceuticals in cancer or neurodegenerative diseases;
· Preclinical/clinical study to identify the pharmacological activities and mechanisms of action of nutraceuticals against cancer development or neurodegenerative diseases supported by animal or clinical data.
Keywords: anti-cancer, anti-neurodegenerative, nutraceutical, molecular mechanism
