Book News Annotation:

Plants and plant-derived compounds, account for about a third of medicinal drugs in developed countries and the majority in some Asian countries, according to Israeli scientists Yaniv and Bachrach. In 21 chapters, international experts treat the latest developments in this trendy field including traditional uses of phytomedicines, their biotechnology-assisted production (which may strike those in the alternative medicine field as ironic for "natural" substances), and clinical applications for conditions such as cancer and heart disease. Major concerns include quality assurance, herb-drug interactions, and barriers to interdisciplinary research.
