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 seventh volume of this series features 7 chapters that cover the following topics:

  • - Gut micriobiota and gastrointestinal cancer
  • - Dengue virus infections
  • - Synergistic antibiotic drug interactions
  • - Molecular modeling of antibacterial drugs
  • - Nucleic acid aptamers as anti-infective agents
  • - Fungal multidrug resistance
  • - The role of hydrogen sulfide in infections
