Introduction

Frontiers in Drug Design and Discovery is an eBook series devoted to publishing the latest and the most important advances in drug design and discovery. Eminent scientists have contributed chapters focused on all areas of rational drug design and drug discovery including medicinal chemistry, in-silico drug design, combinatorial chemistry, high-throughput screening, drug targets, and structure-activity relationships. This eBook series should prove to be of interest to all pharmaceutical scientists who are involved in research in drug design and discovery and who wish to keep abreast of rapid and important developments in the field.

The seventh volume of this series brings together seven reviews covering chemotherapeutic agents, antimicrobials and phytochemicals.

Some topics included in this volume are:

  1. - Metabolic pathways and chemotherapy drugs
  2. - Cardiotoxicity of cancer chemotherapy
  3. - Nanotherapeutics for infectious diseases
  4. - Natural sources of angiogenesis inhibitors

…and much more.
