Natural Products and their Bioactives in Antidiabetic Drug Discovery
Enables researchers to effectively understand and use bioactive compounds to target, prevent, and manage diabetes
Natural Products and Their Bioactives in Antidiabetic Drug Discovery provides readers with an overview of recent research in new drug discovery against diabetic complications based on bioactives from NPs, bridging the gap between the public research institutes and private companies working to find drugs to treat diabetes. To aid in reader comprehension, the text includes case studies and illustrated examples in relevant chapters.
Part one presents chapters on fundamental concepts of diabetes mellitus (DM) and recent drug discovery progress along with the various druggable targets and challenges. Part two covers bioactive compounds targeting Type-1 Diabetes. Part three focuses on Type-2 Diabetes. In Part four, the contributors address gestational DM prevention and management with natural compounds.
Written by a global team of experts in the field, Natural Products and their Bioactives in Antidiabetic Drug Discovery covers sample topics such as:
- Obesity risk factor in patients with T1DM and possible role of nutritional therapy in its management
