Book Announcement

Bentham Science Publishers

In recent years, attempts have been made to discover a mechanism for neurodegenerative diseases and prospective treatment that may help mitigate aging effects and prevent these diseases. Natural products have been a constant source of new approaches for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, in particular plant alkaloids and polyphenolic compounds.

The proposed book “Indopathy for Neuroprotection: Recent Advances“ highlights the herbal treatments that are preferred over conventional treatments. This will focus on the effects of various medicinal plants that have shown promise in reversing neurodegenerative disease pathological symptoms and highlights the influence of medicinal herbal phytochemicals on neuroprotective role and mechanism of action.
