Ethnobotany, as a research field of science, has been widely used for the documentation of indigenous knowledge on the use of plants and for providing an inventory of useful plants from local flora in Asian countries. Plants that are used for traditional herbal medicine in different countries ar...
The biodiversity found in Latin America is one of the richest in the world, yet its potential as a source of new pharmaceuticals has not been fully investigated. This paper will explore the present status of natural products research in 19 Latin American countries. Future research needs will be ...
The relationship between common medicinal plants and major health problems in Africa, specifically Mozambique, is presented here. Emphasis is given to plant species largely used to solve or slow down diarrhoea, malaria, respiratory, and sexual complaints. These diseases, together with malnutriti...
In order to discover new bioactive compounds from plant sources which could become new leads or new drugs, extracts should be simultaneously evaluated by chemical screening and by various biological or pharmacological targets. Chemical screening using hyphenated techniques such as LC/UV and LC/M...
In Asia and North America, members of the family Magnoliaceae have been and are presently used extensively in indigenous herbal medicine. Many taxa of the genus Magnolia produce lignans and sesquiterpene lactones, some with considerable in vitro bioactivities. This review focuses on selected nat...
A model for a database system that provides a standardized environment for submission, storage, and retrieval of ethnomedicinal data was developed. The model is based on object oriented database technology, and is suitable for not only storing data, digital images, sound and video, but also for ...
Taking the natural cardenolides as a model for new inotropic agents, pimaranic, cyclohexanic and hydroindenic derivatives have been synthesized and tested. Several of these derivatives are positive inotropics and two of the D3a-unsaturated bis(amidinohydrazono)hydroinenes also are selective Na(+...
Nature has been a source of medicinal agents for thousands of years, and an impressive number of modern drugs have been isolated from natural sources, many based on their use in traditional medicine. In the past century, however, an increasing role has been played by microorganisms in the produc...
