This reference summarizes recent advancements in knowledge about cardiovascular disease and pharmacology. The goal of the book is to inform readers about recent findings on cardiovascular therapeutics and how to conduct experiments to evaluate natural products. It presents 10 chapters that cover basic clinical research on cardiovascular diseases and therapeutic agents derived from natural sources. The book concludes with a series of experiments that demonstrate the methods to test the ameliorative effects of 3 phytochemicals: Biochanin A (red clover), Zingiberene (ginger oil) and Betaine (sugar beet).

Key Features:

- 10 chapters that highlight recent research cardiovascular medicine and pharmacology

- Covers knowledge about basic cardiovascular physiology, congestive heart failure treatment and the treatment of heart inflammation.

- Covers uses, benefits, and drawbacks of numerous rodent and non-rodent animal models for studying CVD

- Updates readers about 21st-century CRISPR-cas9 technology and its uses in CVD.

- Covers the significance of Indian Ayurvedic techniques on the cardiovascular system,

- Covers information about nutraceuticals for CVD therapy

- Includes experiments to evaluate 3 phytochemicals for the treatment of different heart diseases such as hypertension, obesity-cardiomyopathy and the mitigation of inflammatory cytokines in myocardial infarction.

This book is an informative resource for cardiologists, and researchers working in the field of cardiovascular pharmacology. It also helps readers to understand the benefits of herbal medications that are commonly available for consumption in homes.


I was delighted when I received a request from Dr. P. Brahmanaidu and Dr. V. V. Sathibabu Uddandrao to write a brief foreword to the reprint of this book because, for many years, I have admired their incredible contribution to research especially in the field of metabolic disorders and nutraceuticals. I was excited when they started writing a book on “Advancements in Cardiovascular Research and Therapeutics: Molecular and Nutraceutical Perspectives” and I would be first in line to buy it. In fact, editors sent me a copy of the book draft and I was humbled. Not only was this a great book, but it was also a great way to write and construct chapters.

Looking through this magnificent volume, I am absolutely amazed by the way they presented this book about the pathophysiology of cardiovascular disorders and their novel treatment approaches by nutraceuticals. It is more than a book of lovely illustrations and a mine of information, demonstrating therapeutic approaches and it is a source of inspiration and information in the field of cardiovascular pharmacology. This book is unique and surely a work of treasure for anyone who is interested in cardiovascular research. So, I strongly recommend you to read it, enjoy it and learn from it.
