This book series brings updated reviews to readers interested in advances in the development of anti-infective drug design and discovery. The scope of the book 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 sixth volume of this series features 6 chapters that cover the following topics:

  • - Alternative anti-infective / anti-inflammatory therapeutic options for fighting Alzheimer’s disease
  • - Microbial peptides that combat microbial biofilms
  • - Malaria and its treatment
  • - Tuberculosis drugs

… and much more.
