Many of the thousands of plant species growing throughout the world have medicinal values, containing active constituents that have a direct action on the body. They are used both in herbal and conventional medicine and offer benefits that pharmaceutical drugs often lack, helping to combat illness and support the body’s effort to regain good health. Therefore, in recent years medicinal plants have received renewed attention of scientists in India and abroad and there are spurt of publications on their chemistry, pharmacology and clinical investigations? Based on this rationale, the present volume presents 22 research and review articles embodying recent data on worldwide studies on medicinal plants by eminent scientists broadly directed towards discovery of new drugs of plant origin. Some of the interesting reports included are: Turmeric an Indian curry its phytochemical and pharmacological perspective with special reference to anti-inflammatory action. Blood anticoagulant activity of sulfated polysaccharide from Codium tomentosum as a function of life stages and storage. Cancer chemoprevention by propolis and its polyphenolic compounds in experimental animals. Composition and anti-microbial activity of essential oil from Plectranthus ornatus. Microbial transformations of Artemisinin. Hepatoprotective effects of Ganoderma lucidum. A review of plants as potential antidiabetic drugs. Mechanisms for the antitumour effects of the refined polysaccharides extracted from Ganoderma lucidum in mice. Antioxidant activity of Azardirachta indica A. Juss (Neem) leaf. Genus Lychnophora: Chemistry and biological activity etc. The contributions are from far and wide including Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Germany, India, Italy, Malaysia, Nigeria, Singapore and USA.
