About this book

Viruses and plagues have constantly threatened the survival of humanity since the evolution of modern man. Medical advances thanks to the application of remedial plants have helped to fight back against some of the most nefarious bacterial and viral infections, giving humanity a fighting chance.

This fourth volume in the Medicinal Plants in the Asia Pacific for Zoonotic Pandemics series provides an unprecedented, comprehensive overview of the pharmacological activity of medicinal plants in more than 100 Asian plants. The text discusses the actions of such plants against viruses and bacteria representing a threat of epidemic and pandemic diseases including COVID-19, with an emphasis on the molecular basis and cellular pathways. Scientific names, botanical classifications and descriptions, medicinal uses and chemical constituents are presented, chemical sructures and a vast selection of bibliographical references.

Features:
- Introduction to the molecular mechanism of natural products from medicinal plants in Asia on bacteria and viruses
- Phylogenetic presentation of a selection of medicinal plants and a chemotaxonomical rationale of antiviral and antibacterial action
- Chemical structure–activity relationship, pharmacokinetics and bioavailability are discussed
- A useful research tool for students, post-graduate students and academics looking forward to develop antiviral and antibacterial agents from medicinal plants in Asia

This volume is a critical reference for anyone involved in the discovery of leads for the treatment of pandemic viral and bacterial infections.

Biography

Christophe Wiart is a French scientist. His fields of expertise are Asian ethnopharmacology, chemotaxonomy and ethnobotany. He has collected, identified and classified several hundred species of medicinal plants from India, Southeast Asia and China. Ethnopharmacology of medicinal plants in the Asia Pacific; bioprospection, collection and identification of medicinal botanical samples and phytochemical and pharmacological study for the identification of lead compounds as novel antibacterial, anticancer, and antioxidant principles from rare plants from the rainforest of Southeast Asia. Dr Christophe Wiart appeared on HBO's Vice (TV Series) in season 3, episode 6 (episode 28 of the series), titled "The Post-Antibiotic World & Indonesia's Palm Bomb." This episode aired on April 17, 2015. It highlighted the need to find new treatments for infections that were previously treatable with antibiotics, but are now resistant to multiple drugs. "The last hope for the human race’s survival, I believe, is in the rainforests of tropical Asia", said ethnopharmacologist Dr Christophe Wiart. "The pharmaceutical wealth of this land is immense".

Media reviews

"This book will be an important resource for scientists, as well as people passionate about helping to save these critical resources. Perhaps a new drug lead will be identified from at least one of these plants".
– From the foreword by Dr Mark S. Butler, MSBChem Consulting, Brisbane, Australia
