Exploring the Efficacy and Beneficence of Complementary and Alternative Medicinal Products in Disease Therapy
Recent breakthroughs in science and technology have led to a concomitant growth in exploratory studies into the definitive properties of traditional therapies employed in medicine and pharmacology. Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) involves a diverse range of medicinal and health practices and products that are typically not part of conventional medicine. Presently, there are a multitude of research studies investigating the promise and potential of CAM products in disease therapy. This book aspires to be a compendium of recent results highlighting topical pre-clinical (in vitro, in vivo) and clinical trial studies undertaking this effort. A record of concentric investigations into the therapeutic properties of particular products may assure researchers and the public of safety, efficacy and beneficent implications. It is the intention of the editor to solicit and corral scientific findings that establish a continuum of research investigations exhibiting the enormous possibilities of CAM and the financial benefits thereof; it is the prerogative of the editor to tie together book chapters that ultimately present a holistic overview, and make an intelligent argument for an aggressive, sustained research into the capabilities of CAM in disease therapy applications: https://www.igi-global.com/publish/call-for-papers/call-details/4155.
