This volume provides information on how to select and screen plants for their medicinal properties. It describes phytopharmacological techniques for extracting and qualitatively and quantitatively analyzing a plant’s phytochemicals. After a detailed in vitro investigation including nutritional and anti-nutritional analyses, medicinal properties were tested with various in vivo models for anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-pyretic, anticancer and anti-diabetic properties, as well as wound healing, neurodegenerative diseases, etc. Compound identification and purification techniques include, among others, TLC and column chromatography, as well as molecular docking with specific proteins.

Legumes have high potential for improving the nutritional quality of foods, but limited data on their bioactive compounds exists. Results of clinical and epidemiological studies suggest that natural antioxidants can protect us against oxidative stress that is closely associated with cancer and cardiovascular disease. Legumes are a valuable source of bioactive compounds such as phenolic compounds, peptides and non-nutritional factors. They are rich in several important micronutrients, including potassium, magnesium, folate, iron, and zinc, and are an important source of protein in vegetarian diets. They are among the only plant foods that provide significant amounts of the amino acid, lysine. Commonly consumed legumes are also rich in total and soluble fibre as well as in resistant starch. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the antioxidant activity and health aspects of legumes. The international spread of contributors will describe the key factors that influence consumer acceptance of legumes in the diet, as well as the known functional properties of legumes and legume based food products. It will serve as an excellent and up-to-date reference for food scientists, food chemists, researchers in human nutrition, dietetics and the chemistry of natural compounds.

Food traceability is a growing consumer concern worldwide. Traceability is undertaken primarily at the administrative level, where the use of advanced analytical tools is not available. Nevertheless, the determination of geographical origin is a requirement of the traceability system for the import and export of foodstuffs (EU regulation 178/2002). The topics covered in this book include the history of traceability; legislations and rules; the actual traceability techniques and the potential analytical techniques for food traceability such as molecular methods (e.g. DGGE, SSCP), next generation sequencers (NGS), bio-captors, chromatographic techniques, isotopic analysis that are used for discrimination of organic food, fish, oils. The chromatographic techniques help in the use of volatile compounds analysis. The isotope analysis helps in distinguishing between chicken meat and vegetable oils. Ambient mass spectrometry is used for studying mycotoxines and alkaloids in foodstuffs and their management, food and feed authentication in olive and other plant oils, and wine. Vibrational methods (e.g. NMR and NIRS) are used to trace food by global spectrum. The book reviews the current and future techniques including metabolomic techniques.

In a real tour de force of pharmacological literature, this edited volume’s chapters highlight the biodiversity-driven approaches which are now of eminent importance in natural products research. It addresses the question why natural products display such complex chemical information, what makes them unique, as they often are, and what their characteristics are. Practical questions such as supply of natural substances and production optimization strategies are also covered.

Drug discovery originating in Africa has the potential to provide significantly improved treatment of endemic diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS. This book critically reviews the current status of drug discovery research and development in Africa, for diseases that are a major threat to the health of people living in Africa. Compiled by leading African and international experts, this book presents the science and strategies of modern drug discovery. It explores how the use of natural products and traditional medicines can benefit from conventional drug discovery approaches, and proposes solutions to current technological, infrastructural, human resources, and economic challenges, which are presented when attempting to engage in full-scale drug discovery. Topics addressed are varied; from African medicinal plants to marine bioprospecting, pharmacogenetics and the use of nanotechnology. This book brings together for the first time a collection of strategies and techniques that need to be considered when developing drugs in an African setting. It is an unprecedented and truly international effort, highlighting the remarkable effort made so far in the area of drug discovery research by African scientists, and scientists from other parts of the world working on African health problems.

Dieses für den deutschen Raum einzigartige Lehrbuch richtet sich an Studenten der Pharmazie, Chemie und Biowissenschaften, aber auch an Quereinsteiger in Forschungs- und Entwicklungsabteilungen der Pharmazeutischen Industrie. Die zweite Auflage ist komplett überarbeitet. Zahlreiche aktuelle Entwicklungen vor allem im methodischen Bereich sind zum Teil in neuen Kapiteln aufgegriffen, viele Fallbeispiele machen die Theorien und Verfahren anschaulich und nachvollziehbar. Der Bogen spannt sich von der Geschichte der Arzneimittelforschung, den Wirkmechanismen der Arzneistoffe und den Methoden zur Leitstruktursuche und -optimierung über Strukturbestimmungsmethoden, Modelling, Moleküldynamik und QSAR-Methoden bis zum struktur- und computergestützten Design. Insgesamt legt das Buch besonderen Wert auf die räumliche Struktur der interagierenden Moleküle und erklärt, warum ein bestimmter Wirkstoff in seiner Gestalt praktisch durch die Geometrie und den Wirkmechanismus des Zielproteins festgelegt wird. Die beiliegende DVD mit interaktiven Molekülmodellen dient dem Ziel, dem Lernenden einen leichten Zugang zum räumlichen Verständnis der molekularen Strukturen und Interaktionen zu geben.
