Natural Immunomodulators: Promising Therapy for Disease Management discusses the use of natural immunomodulators as a promising therapy for managing various diseases.

The book begins with an introduction to the immune system and the ways in which it can be modulated. This is followed by a discussion on the various diseases and disorders associated with the immune system, including autoimmune disorders, allergies, and immune deficiency conditions.

The natural sources of immunomodulators, including plants, herbs, and other natural substances is also explained along with the importance of standardizing natural immunomodulator drugs, including the methods used to ensure their quality and consistency.

The book also delves into the chemistry and analytical techniques used to study immunomodulators, clinical and pre-clinical bioassays. The next couple of chapters focus on the use of natural immunomodulators in cancer, the therapy of cancer and infectious diseases. Drug delivery and the strategy and regulatory perspective for natural immunomodulators. The final 2 chapters round up the contents with information about synthetic immunomodulators and the future perspective for the use of immunomodulators in disease management.

Natural Immunomodulators: Promising Therapy for Disease Management is a comprehensive guide to the use of natural immunomodulators as a therapy for various diseases, and is a valuable resource for professionals and students interested in this topic. The book is aimed at health care professionals such as medical doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and life science and nutritionist professionals, as well as students.

With the advancement and rapidly changing technology, information is accumulating in ever intimidating quantities with facts and figures that give logical reasoning, simple explanations about chaotic mechanisms, and the complexity of biology and life. Scientific knowledge is full of paradoxes, and with the addition of new information, it becomes easy and simple to unravel the unknown to known with rational justification.

Our book, entitled Natural Immunomodulators: promising therapy for disease management, is a small effort to gather recent updates in the field of immunology, pathology, and immunomodulatory therapies intended at harnessing the power of nature. Although the information is ever expanding in volume, we have taken intense efforts to conceptualize and summarize the information that emphasizes the significance of natural immunomodulators.

The immune system complexity is secondary to the nervous and endocrine systems. The immune system has a profound impact and involvement in emerging lifestyle-related chronic illnesses and infectious diseases. The outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in the year 2019 had underscored the significance of immunity. Moreover, the recent discovery of the brain lymphatic system in 2015 had stated the linkages of the immune system in neuropathology.

Our book provides a preview of the immune system and every aspect of natural immunomodulators, including their natural sources, standardization, novel drug delivery methods, marketing, regulatory requirements, challenges, and limitations to get them in mainstream in line with and parallel to modern medicines. The retrieved scientific information from literature is presented comprehensively without losing the essence of the research to readers, and the content is abstracted succinctly in simple, lucid language.

The successful completion of our book was possible due to the collective efforts and support from chapter authors, our research students, friends, and colleagues. We thank all of them for their sincere contributions in shaping this book. Finally, we are also grateful to the Bentham publishing team for their outstanding support and cooperation.
