Antioxidants and Nutraceuticals in Urology

Call for Papers

Antioxidants and nutraceuticals (or functional foods) have gained attention in several medical areas in recent years. Especially in Urology, these compounds have been used for treating (alone or in association with traditional drugs) or preventing different medical conditions. Some of the situations in which antioxidants are routinely used are in fertility problems, prostate disorders (including BPH and prostate cancer), and renal ischemia for partial nephrectomy and renal transplantation. In a similar fashion, nutraceuticals are being routinely used in urinary tract infections, bladder diseases, and prostate disorders (including BPH and prostate cancer). However, a large number of antioxidants and nutraceuticals are available although few of them were studied for their application in urological situations.

The aim of this special issue is to promote the discussion of the use of antioxidants and nutraceuticals in any urological condition. Thus, studies dealing with the mechanisms by which nutraceuticals and/or antioxidants act in urological conditions are welcome. This includes basic or applied (translational) research, performed in either experimental or clinical conditions. Further we hope to attract Review high original research articles which describe the current state of the art regarding antioxidants and/or nutraceuticals in any urological condition.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Oxidative stress and the use of antioxidants in fertility
  • Use of nutraceuticals for improving fertility
  • The role of antioxidants, oxidative stress, and nutraceuticals in prostate diseases
  • Antioxidants and nutraceuticals ameliorating kidney diseases
  • Ischemic injuries in urology and antioxidative therapy
  • Use of nutraceuticals in urinary tract infections and bladder disorders
  • Oxidative stress, antioxidants, and nutraceuticals in erectile dysfunction
