Special Issue Introduction

The venoms of some animals (such as scorpions, snakes, sea anemones, marine cone snails, worms, wasps, lizards and frogs) are natural sources of bioactive molecules that exhibit different modes of action (modulators of ion channels or enzymes, etc.). These compounds are often highly potent. A number of venom-related molecules have been shown to possess some significant therapeutic potential to treat pain, microbial infections, and other pathologies such as cancer, autoimmune and neurological diseases. This special issue of JUMD is devoted to these molecules (and derivatives) from animal venoms. The researchers and clinicians in the field are encouraged to submit their manuscripts or review articles for publication in this special issue of JUMD.
