ABOUT THE BOOK:

Volume 1 : The stimulation of defense mechanistic pathways has been recognized as possible means of inhibiting diseases progression in humans without perse eliciting harmful effects. Thus the medicinal plants have a wide diversity of secondary metabolites with different biological activities to generate potent bioactive molecules necessary for health enhancement. On the other hand, lack of scientific data proving the efficacy and safety of medicine prepared from herbs signals the need to full understand about their chemical and biological properties. In this volume several experimental studies have been included to comprehend the pharmacological effects of more than 50 commonly medicinal plants used in folk medicines. As there is enormous potential of traditionally used medical herbs for developing new drugs, there is an urgent need to further elucidate phytochemicals and mechanisms of action using modern biological methods. Therefore, an attempt has been made in the volume to present the botanical, phytochemical, and pharmacological properties of the plants together with pharmacoparameters such as contraindications, adverse effects, and overdose of the plants. The volume discusses about such studies in 26 chapters received from far and wide 16 countries of the world. The volume has been designed for a wide range of audience in the field of phytochemistry, pharmacology, biotechnology, ethnomedicine, toxicology, drug standardization, microbiology, medicinal sciences and other researchers interested in the discovery of new natural drugs.

Volume 2 : The medicinal properties of plants have been valued by every culture and civilization in the world. The volume focuses on the botany, phyto-chemcial compostion, medicinal uses along with pharmacological properties, of around 50 plants. Simultaneously, an attempt has been made to summarize the cellular and molecular mechanisms of the therapeutic actions of the herbs and introduced the major active chemical ingredients in relation to therapeutic values. Majority of biologically active plant principles reported in the volume are alkaloids, followed by sesquiterpenes, diterpenes, triterpene saponins, triterpene aglycones, flavonoids, sterols, coumarins, quinones and monoterpenes. The scope for commercial products developed is also described. The book is aimed at students of medicine, pharmacy, nursing, agriculture, botany and chemistry and is useful source book for medical practioners and others with a special interest in traditional medicine.

Volume 3 : Worldwide investigations in specialized areas of biological activity have nevertheless confirmed that plants are a reservoir of chemical agents with therapeutical potential. Since new diseases as well as drug-resistant strains of known pathogens continue to emerge, the search for novel compounds from drug plants is ongoing process and there is a need to exchange this vital information for wider application by the global scientific community. The present volume is an endeavour in this direction and presents 23 chapters on medicinal plants investigations authored by eminent scientists from India and abroad on various aspects viz. medicinal properties and uses, chemical and pharmacological profiles, cellular and molecular mechanisms of the therapeutic actions, chemical composition and biological activity, chemopreventive and radioprotective effects, pharmacokinetics and pharmaco-dynamics, ethnopharmacology etc. for many medicinal species studied viz., Hypericum perforatum, Pueraria lobata, Salvia miltiorrhiza, Tabernanthe iboga, Panax ginseng, Crataegus laevigata, Citrus aurantum, Crocus sativus, Allium hirtifolium, Alchornea glandulosa, Byrsonima fagifolia, Mouriri pusa, Zingiber officinale, Terminalia arjuna, Catharanthus roseus, Pongamia pinnata, Azadirachta indica, Artocarpus altilis, Morus alba, Melia azedarach, Chrysanthemum coronarium, Stellaria chamaejasme, Daphne tangutica, Xanthium sibiricum, Bidens pilosa, Xanthopappus subacaulis, Radix Scutellariae, Huperzia saururus, Pterocarpus angolensis, Clausena anisata, Ziziphus mucronata, Turraea nilotica, Vangueria infausta, Annona stenophylla, Ximenia caffra, Dicoma anomalia and Daucus carota. The findings could serve as basic material for further studies in the direction of developing new phyto-therapeutics. The contributions are from far and wide including Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, Cuba, Denmark, France, India, Iran, Poland, Serbia, Taiwan, United Kingdom, U.S.A. and Zimbabwe. The volume aims to document updated information on medicinal plants investigations to bring these to the attention of international scientific community, particularly the phytochemists, pharmacologists, microbiologists, biochemists, biotechnologists, medical scientists and other researchers engaged in the discovery and development of new drugs of natural origin.

Volume 4 : Attention is again focusing on natural sources for finding new lead pharmaceutical compounds as multi-drug resistant strains of infectious disease agents continue to emerge. The vast chemical diversity of medicinal plants is a promising source of lead compounds that is relatively unexplored and the investigation of traditional medicinal plants is a valuable tool for targeting potentially active species. Based on this rationale, the present volume provides 19 research and review articles contributed by eminent scientists from far and wide including Brazil, Colombia, India, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Nigeria, U.S.A. and Zimbabwe, with a view to bring the recent scientific data to the attention of international scientific community. Some interesting contributions included are, Reviews on medicinal properties and use of Lippia alba, Bixa orellana, Silphium spp. Wasabia japonica, Abutilon indicum, Psidium guajava, Swertia chirata, Vernonia cinerea and Inula racemosa. Ethnophar-macological uses of Silphium species recorded by native American tribes. Investigations on Amburana cearensis for its antifungal, antibacterial and vasorelaxant effects on CNS. Review on antifertility drugs. Effect of NPK inorganic fertilizers on Gongronema latifolium. Therapeutic plants possessing contraceptive activities in males. Medicinal and economic potential of Seabuck Thorn (Hippophae spp.). Immunomodulatory effect of Propolis and. Gene expression in the seed development of Castor (Ricinus communis). The chapter on Plant extracts as anti-inflammatory components of diet has special significance. These studies have demonstrated that plants have potential medicinal properties to fight against many present-day diseases and conditions.The findings presented would serve as basic material for further work in developing new phyto-therapeutics. The volume has been addressed to phytochemists, pharmacologists, microbiologists, biotechnologists, medical scientists and other researchers engaged in the search of natural products.
