From the Back Cover:

Ivan Ross takes advantage of the significant growth in the amount of new data available to update and expand his much acclaimed Medicinal Plants of the World: Chemical Constituents, Traditional and Modern Medicinal Uses, Volume 1. This considerably enhanced second edition contains new research and references on the immunomodulatory activity present in Allium sativum, Mangifera indica, and Punica granatum, the antidiabetic effects of Momoridica charantia and Mucuna pruriens, the antiinflammatory activity found in Mangifera indica and Arbus precatorius, the cholesterol lowering effect of Allium sativum and Moringa pterygosperma, and the antitumor effect of Arbus precatorius and Moringa pterygosperma. There are also important new findings concerning the antiherpes simplex virus activity of Mangifera indica, the anti-Parkinson's activity of Mucuna pruriens, the antiviral activity in Phyllanthus niruri and Jatropha curcas, the hyperthyroid regulation properties of Moringa pterygosperma, and the antioxidant activity of Mangifera indica, Punica granatum, Psidium guajava, and Allium sativum. Allium sativum is highlighted for its treatment of unstable angina pectoris, sickle red blood cell dehydration inhibition, senescence ameliorative, chemoprotective, cardiovascular, antineoplastic, anticarcinogenic, and antiatherogenic effects. This revised and enhanced edition provides details on traditional medicinal uses, chemical constituents, pharmacological activities, clinical trials, color illustrations, Latin names, botanical descriptions, as well as providing an index and extensive bibliographies.
Authoritative and exhaustively compiled, Medicinal Plants of the World: Chemical Constituents, Traditional and Modern Medicinal Uses, Volume 1, 2nd Edition offers pharmacists, physicians, medicinal chemists, toxicologists, and phytochemists a universal reference on twenty-six of the most widely used medicinal plants in the world.

Review:

"This book is a wonderful contribution to the knowledge of medicinal plants of the world. . .Mr. Ross is to be congratulated and complimented for such a well-done book. It is an invaluable resource that will become a critical reference to a great diversity of specialists in the fields of public health, chemistry, phytomedicine, ethnobotany, toxicology, and botany." -Journal of Natural Products

"The editor has neatly merged diffuse knowledge from a complex field to provide an educational resource pertinent to researchers, drug developers, and pharmaceutical and clinical services. . .an interesting introduction to the intriguing field of ethnopharmacology and traditional medicine." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

"There is also a useful glossary towards the end of the book that provides definitions of botanical, chemical and medicinal terms used in the text. These features will make the book very easy to consult by specialists with a wide range of interests...The species selected for inclusion contain some well known medicinal plants, such as Catharanthus roseus and Aloe vera, several species better-known for their fruits such as avocado, annona, guava, mango, papaya, pomegranate and tamarind, the spice turmeric, the vegetable cassava and Mamordica charantia the bitter gourd, lemon grass, the tropical weedy species Cassia alata, and some well known poisonous plants such as Abrus precatorius, Fatropha curcas and Lantana camara...a useful compilation of information about some economically important species...will certainly be consulted by physicians, pharmacists and herbal healers, but should also appeal to ethnobotanists, economic botanists and plant chemists. I am sure that I will be referring back to it from time to time." -New Phytologist

"The key features of the book are its exhaustive yet concise presentation of scientific plant-use data from many sources, a wealth of practical ideas and theoretical information that suggests new opportunities for further studies, detailed information about the uses of each plant in different countries, extensive presentation of pharmacological effects and clinical trials, identification of the chemical constituents of each plant, complete cross-referencing of common names to country and scientific name, a comprehensive index that includes significant terms, symptoms, and treatments, and extensive references to chemical constituents." -Journal of Medicinal Chemistry
