This eBook series brings updated reviews to readers interested in advances in the development of anti-infective drug design and discovery. The scope of the eBook series covers a range of topics including rational drug design and drug discovery, medicinal chemistry, in-silico drug design, combinatorial chemistry, high-throughput screening, drug targets, recent important patents, and structure-activity relationships.

Frontiers in Anti-Infective Drug Discovery is a valuable resource for pharmaceutical scientists and post-graduate students seeking updated and critically important information for developing clinical trials and devising research plans in this field.

The fifth volume of this series features 6 chapters that cover the following topics:

  • - Virus infection pathways in living cells
  • - Antimicrobial activity of natural products (essential oils and food products)
  • - Medicinal plants that produce immunomodulators of veterinary interest
  • - In silico approaches for determination of drug targets
