The emergence of new infectious, chronic and drug resistant diseases have prompted scientists to look towards medicinal plants as agents for treatment and prevention. This book provides an interphase between ethnomedical and ethnobotanical approaches to new drug discovery and advances in biotechnology and molecular science that has made it increasingly feasible to transform traditional medicines into modern drugs. These novel approaches also raise new issues and the volume explores economic, ethical and policy considerations of drug development based on indigenous knowledge or traditional medicine.This work also features standardization and development of phytomedicines for major therapeutic indications, including emerging infectious diseases affecting developing and developed countries.The publication provides state-of-the-art information on the most innovative science, the research, the industry, the market, and the future of ethnomedicine and drug discovery.

The tradition of setting new trends in medicinal chemistry continued at the 13th Symposium where topics included chemical and biological diversity, new paradigms in drug action, and new insights in receptor mechanisms. Other topics of great interest discussed, and included in these proceedings, are the discoveries in green chemistry, the interface between organic synthesis and biosynthesis, the growing problem of resistant micro-organisms and the possibilities to identify new, and better, antibiotics. And finally, in recent developments, the discovery of small molecules with insulin sensitizing properties.

This volume of Pharmacochemistry Library comprises the text of invited lectures presented at the 11th Noordwijkerhout-Camerino Symposium Trends in Drug Research, held in Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands, from 11-15 May 1997. In the programme attention has been given to the generation of new biological target systems and the generation of new lead molecules, with presentations on e.g. combinatorial chemistry, compound libraries, database search, high throughput screening and molecular biology. Other topics discussed were the perspectives for new medicines for the gastro-intestinal tract, the major developments in the search for effective anti-HIV drugs and new aspects in synthetic approaches. In a special session three topics which currently draw much attention were discussed: How to deal with the major problem of resistance against antimirobial agents? Can the apoptosis mechanism be used as a drug target? Is the newly observed phenomenon of inverse agonism a general principle and has it consequences for drug development (and use?)

Membrane Electrodes in Drug-Substances Analysis discusses the analytical control of drugs using ion-selective membrane electrodes. This book is divided into three parts, comprised of 18 chapters organized according to the topics they cover. The first part covers the general aspects of membrane electrodes, which includes topics such as theoretical considerations and the basic characteristics of membrane electrodes. Part II deals with the general methods of analysis using membrane electrodes, and Part III tackles the determination of drug-substances. This book will be of great use to researchers and professionals engaged in drug research.
