Natural products continue to play a key role in drug development. A recent analysis of the drug market in the developed world revealed that 40% of total clinically approved drugs were either unmodified natural products or their semi-synthetic derivatives. This book series focuses on reviews of exciting new bioactive natural products that have huge potential as drugs. It highlights the everlasting importance of natural products in our lives. Each volume presents comprehensive reviews in cutting edge fields contributed by eminent scientists. The first volume covers the following topics:

  • - bioactive compounds from marine invertebrates
  • - natural product derived drugs for immunological and inflammatory diseases
  • - clinical trials of curcumin, camptothecin, astaxanthin, and biochanin
  • - antibacterial and antifungal drugs from natural sources
  • - natural products as anti-HIV medicines
