    by CRC Press

    Advances in Novel Phytopharmaceuticals will cover the current aspects of the development of novel herbal formulations and summarize their type of active components, biological activity, applications, and toxicity associated with novel herbal formulations. Such distinct types of novel herbal formulations are described to have remarkable advantages over conventional formulations of plant actives and extracts. The section also covers the various herbal phytoconstituents used for novel drug delivery applications. These novel herbal formulations can be used more uprightly and with enhanced efficacy by incorporating them into modern dosage forms. This can be accomplished by designing novel drug delivery systems for herbal ingredients. This book provides key information for everyone interested in novel Phyto drug delivery systems, drug discovery, and delivery, including medicinal chemists, cosmetic experts, nutritionists, toxicologists, drug formulators, and health care professionals. Students, professors, and researchers working in pharmaceutical sciences and beyond will also find the book useful.

    We will also focus on patent filed, technology transfer, market potential, and regulatory aspects of herbal nanomedicines, if any. However, research in this area is still at the exploratory stage. However, in the market, there are no such books available that have summarized all the contents of the research aspects. So, we will try to make our full contribution to this area. This book will be the continuation part of the First volume and readers and target audience will get all the knowledge related to this topic.
