Book Announcement

Bentham Science Publishers

The most recent research on the use of nutraceuticals in the context of CVD prevention and therapy is excitingly updated in this book. The book “Advancements in​ ​Cardiovascular Research and​ ​Therapeutics: Molecular and​ ​Nutraceutical Perspectives“  is truly enlightening for cardiologists, and researchers working in the field of cardiovascular pharmacology and helps the common man since this book deals with nutraceuticals that are commonly available for consumption in homes.

The first chapter of the book “Advancements in​ ​Cardiovascular Research and​ ​Therapeutics: Molecular and​ ​Nutraceutical Perspectives“, which has ten chapters overall, provides an overview of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and its pathophysiological mechanisms. The second chapter provides information on congestive heart failure and pharmacotherapy, while the third chapter discusses nutrition and antioxidant use in preventing vascular inflammation. The uses, benefits, and drawbacks of numerous rodent and non-rodent animal models for studying CVD are detailed in Chapter 4. In contrast, chapter 5 describes 21st-century CRISPR-cas9 technology and its uses in CVD.

The significance of Indian Ayurvedic techniques on the cardiovascular system, etiopathogenesis, and treatment approaches are discussed in Chapter 6. Nutraceuticals are shown in Chapter 7 as possible tools to protect the human race against CVD. The therapeutic potential and mechanism of action of Biochanin-A against hypertension are discussed in Chapter 8. The focus of Chapter 9 is on Zingiberene's ability to treat obesity cardiomyopathy. Chapter 10 concludes with a discussion of how Betaine reduces the formation of matrix-metalloproteinase and pro-inflammatory cytokines, which both contribute to myocardial infarction improvement.
