From contagious disease & behavioral problems to diet and skin care the herb describes over 275 common childhood complaints, illness and health related issues, both to treat and to avoid problems. Not only in India but also in many other countries of the world, plants have played significant and prominent role as medicine. The discovery of useful medicines such as reserving, barbering, quinine, curare, cocaine etc. or intermediates such as the steroidal sapogenins has added impetus to the ongoing investigations of natural products. The second half of the twentieth century has witnessed resurgence in the study of natural products with emphasis on biogenesis, plant physiology, structural configuration and synthesis of many of the well-known compounds. Based on this rationale, the present volume has been compiled and presents 23 research and review papers from eminent scientists in India and abroad. Some interesting reports included in this publication are: Perspective in bioflavonoid A review; Classification of herbal anti-diabetics based on mechanism of action and chemical constituents; Effect of American ginseng and Asian ginseng in reducing blood glucose level and body weight; Evaluation of Hypoglycemic and chronic wound healing activity of Cecropia palate on streptozotocin induced diabetic rats; Cardio-protection by Bale (Aegle marmelos); Use of Hyperacid in Photodynamic applications; Rheumatoid arthritis and herbal drugs: current status and future prospects; Photochemistry and Pharmacology of Tan acetum (composite) a review; Chinese medicinal plants in arthritis; Pharmacological effect of Piper xanthostachyum, on Rodents.
