Freshwater Phytopharmaceutical Compounds .


Herbal medicines have been used as prophylactic measures and curative treatments throughout human history, and crude herbal extracts are commonly used in pharmaceutical research. Producing a variety of structurally novel bioactive compounds or secondary metabolites, freshwater plants provide a diverse and unique source of bioactive lead compounds for the discovery of modern drugs. These include antibiotics, mycotoxins, alkaloids, and phenolic compounds.

In an effort to bring together the disciplines of biology and pharmacy for the identification and large-scale collection of pharmaceutically important organisms, Freshwater Phytopharmaceutical Compounds presents key information on freshwater flora, including common names, classification, global distribution, habitats, and biologyall organized according to the activities of their bioactive compounds.

Pharmaceutical activities of the freshwater plants discussed include:

Anti-inflammatory and analgesic
Antidiabetic
Antidiuretic
Anticoagulant and antiplatelet
