Pharmacognosy: Current Herbal Medications and Natural Product Chemistry for a PharmD Curriculum focuses on the regulation and practicum of herbal medications in the real world. By introducing natural products as lead compounds for drug design, discovery, and development, the text bridges the gap between traditional herbal medications and current Western medicines.

The book covers the unique and rich history of pharmacognosy in pharmacy practice and the critical role it has and continues to play in the evolution of modern Western medicine. Part I contains readings that provide students with an overview of the history of pharmacognosy, as well as the contemporary use of herbal medicine around the globe. In Part II, students learn about dietary supplements, botanical ingredients, herbal bioavailability, pharmacokinetics, and the mechanisms of herb-drug interactions. Part III covers natural products that can be used for pain management, anxiety and insomnia treatment, immune modulation, treating inflammation, infectious diseases, cancer, and more. The final part features case studies to demonstrate the practical applications of pharmacognosy.

Featuring contemporary research and information that satisfies Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) Standards, Pharmacognosy is ideal for courses and programs in pharmacy and medicinal chemistry.
