Description

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. A record of concentric investigations into the therapeutic properties of products may assure researchers and the public of safety, efficacy, and beneficent implications. While big pharma and the biotech industry race to produce vaccines and effective and efficient drugs, especially in the times of a pandemic, it is an excellent opportunity to discuss complementary and alternative medicinal products. Research investigations continue to exhibit the enormous possibilities of CAM and the financial benefits thereof.

Exploring the Efficacy and Beneficence of Complementary and Alternative Medicinal Products in Disease Therapy is an innovative reference book that presents a holistic overview and makes an intelligent argument for an aggressive, sustained research into the capabilities of CAM in disease therapy applications. The chapters are a compendium of recent results of CAM in areas such as topical pre-clinical and clinical trial studies undertaking this effort. They demonstrate one or more instances where a continuum of research findings on certain CAM products are indicative of the potential CAM has in the treatment of a plethora of diseases and comorbidities. This book is a valuable reference tool for pharmaceutical companies, healthcare providers, epidemiologists, health professionals, practitioners, researchers, academicians, and students interested in the public safety, efficiency, beneficent, and cost implications of employing CAM in patient care.
