Curcumin: Biosynthesis, Medicinal Uses and Health Benefits $170.00
Editors: Jun Sasaki and Masaki Kichida
Book Description:
Curcumin is a natural product found in the rhizome of Curcuma longa. Ongoing research and clinical trials prove this natural phenolic compound to possess diverse pharmacological potency and is effective as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial/antiviral property and is also being considered as a cancer chemo-preventive agent. Topics discussed in this book include the implications of curcumin treatment of central nervous system disease; phosphorylase kinase inhibition in skin disease; PEGylated curcumin; the potential role of curcumin as a chemotherapeutic drug and the pharmaceutical implications of curcumin in the development of drugs for cystic fibrosis pharmacotherapy.
