This volume on applied pharmaceutical science and microbiology looks at the latest research on the applications of natural products for drug uses. It focuses on understanding how to apply the principles of novel green chemistry methods in the vital area of pharmaceuticals and covers the important aspects of green microbial technology in the pharmaceutical industry.
Chapters include studies on the applications used of natural products in folk and regional medicines, such as for digestive problems, dermatological infections, respiratory diseases, vessel diseases, diarrhea and dysentery, ringworms, boils, fevers (antipyretic), skin and blood diseases, mouth sores, channel discharges, and even cancer. It looks at medical benefit of microbial fermentation for the conservation of nutrients. Other chapters present information on AgNPs fabricated from natural plant and organism extracts for the treatment of cancer and nanoparticles-based drug delivery system as promising technology in microbial pharmaceutics and extensive applications.
