"`Biochemistry and Therapeutic Uses of Medicinal Plants' focus on the latest
developments in biomedical research with special emphasis on natural products. Covering a
wide variety of topics, this book is a valuable source of information for all those
interested in the biochemical and therapeutical use of herbal medicines. For us it was a
daunting task and a challenge to condense, organize and present all available information
in the field, especially at the time when there is an explosion of progress, since
advancement of technology has taken place. There is a paradox in the growth of scientific
knowledge. As information accumulates in ever more intimidating quantities, disconnected
facts and impenetrable mysteries given way to rational explanations and simplicity emerges
from chaos. Gradually the essential principles of a subject come into focus. With rapid
advancements and development of new techniques of analysis at the biochemical and
molecular level many new compounds are being identifies, isolated and characterized and
are being explored for their medicinal value.
This book consists of original articles, provides an update and unique source of
information for all those interested in the fundamental, biochemical processes of the
latest and emerging topics and techniques concerned with the therapeautic uses of
medicinal plants. Although we assume that most readers have at least an introductory
knowledge of role of plants in medicine, yet we have attempted to compile and edit the
invited chapters written by subject experts in a way that even a stranger to this field
could easily understand and comprehend. Moreover, we hope that it will also be useful to
working scientists in search of a guide to help them pick their way through a vast field
