Scientific research in the diverse domains of biomedicine and pharmacotherapy has contributed much to the recent advancements in enhancing global health. Researchers have shown a great interest in exploring and enhancing the therapeutic assistance for a variety of diseases via vital understanding in areas of molecular diagnostics, immunobiology, regenerative medicine, drug development and discovery, cancer biology, functional genomics, pharmaceutics, chemical biology, human biology, and primary or scientific research. Following these, the book series Bentham Briefs in Biomedicine and Pharmacotherapy seeks to cover recent developments in various domains via various volumes.

The second volume “Botanicals and Natural Bioactives: Prevention and Treatment of Diseases” offers immense knowledge of the current research in the prevention and treatment of many diseases. This book volume provides recent and future trends in therapeutic aspects of natural bioactives against various physiological disorders. The pathogenic intervention of chronic ailments like cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, infectious diseases, age-associated diseases, and many cancers involves oxidative damage. The intensified pro-oxidant factors cause structural and functional defects at enzymatic and DNA levels. This leads to mutations and aberrations at the genetic level. The book chapters will captivate interest in the researchers for investigation and augmentation of the use of botanicals and natural bioactives in the remedial assistance against various ailments.
