*Association of American Publishers (AAP) PROSE Award Finalist in Clinical Medicine, 2024*Anti-Aging Pharmacology provides an overview of current research aimed at the pharmacological modulation of aging, including a discussion of the growing number of novel drug classes with promising anti-aging potential. The aging process is the main risk factor for all chronic diseases affecting the elderly. With lifespans extending across the globe, these chronic diseases are placing a larger burden on individuals and health care systems. Therefore, slowing down the aging rate could be more effective in delaying aging-associated chronic disorders than combating them one by one, which is the conventional approach in a current disease-based pharmacological paradigm.This book contains the work of the world’s leading researchers in the field, including sections on the conceptual and methodological background of anti-aging pharmacology, the basic classes of anti-aging drugs, phytochemicals, outcomes of anti-aging developments and future directions. This book will be of interest to a wide audience, ranging from pharmacologists, medicinal chemists and academic researchers in gerontology, biomedical sciences and those in medical practice.

Elemene Antitumor Drugs: Molecular Compatibility Theory and its Applications in New Drug Development and Clinical Practice introduces natural anti-tumor drug elemene and systematic basic and clinical research. Basic principles of the compatibility theory of traditional Chinese medicine and the research and development process of the natural anti-tumor drug elemene under the guidance of this principle are introduced. In addition, the traditional extraction and separation of elemene and the new biosynthesis technology developed by the author's team are described. Then, the systematic anti-tumor mechanism research of elemene are introduced, including unique multi-target and comprehensive anti-tumor mechanisms and detailed mechanisms for treating specific tumors. Under the guidance of compatibility theory, clinical research on the combined application of elemene and different chemotherapeutic drugs has been further carried out, achieving positive results in clinical practice. Finally, the book also introduces the research and exploration of new drug delivery systems of elemene, as well as the structural modification and drug discovery progress taking elemene structure as the lead compound.
