Medicinal Plants: Phytochemistry, Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Volume 1

V K Gupta (Editor) G D Singh (Editor) Surjeet Singh (Editor) A. Kaul (Editor)
Synopsis Ancient civilization greatly depended on local flora and fauna for their survival and experimented with various berries, roots, leaves, minerals or animal parts to find out what effects they had and as a result, many crude drugs were observed by the local healer to have some medical use. As understanding of therapeutic benefits deepens and demands for natural products increased, previously serendipitous discoveries evolved into active searches for new medicines. At present 25 percent of the modern medicines are developed from plants that were first used traditionally, and many synthetic drugs have also been obtained from natural precursors. The present volume, with its balanced approach will be a valuable, and an important research manual, that will stimulate interest and satisfy the need for further knowledge of this rapidly expanding and exciting discipline.
