    Abstract: This book highlights the latest international research on different aspects of medicinal plants and fungi. Studies over the last decade have demonstrated that bioactive compounds isolated from medicinal fungi have promising antitumor, cardiovascular, immunomodulatory, anti-allergic, anti-diabetic, and hepatoprotective properties. In the light of these studies, the book includes chapters (mostly review articles) by eminent researchers from twelve countries across the globe working in different disciplines of medicinal plants and fungi. It discusses topics such as the prevention of major neurodegenerative and neurotoxic mechanisms by Centella asiatica; the medicinal properties and therapeutic applications of several mushrooms species found in different parts of the world; and fungal endophytes as a source of bioactive metabolites including anticancer and cardioprotective agents. There are also chapters on strategies for identifying bioactive secondary metabolites of fungal origin; the use of genomic information to explore the biotechnological potential of medicinal mushrooms; and solid state fermentation of agro-industrial and forestry residues for the production of medicinal mushrooms. It is a valuable resource for the researchers, professionals and students working in the area of medicinal plants and fungi

    Abstract: Since ancient times, plants have been used as a prime natural source of alternative medicines and have played an important role in our lives. The old tradition of medicinal plant application has turned into a highly profitable business in the global market, resulting in the release of a large number of herbal products. People have tried to find different sources of medicines to alleviate pain and cure different illnesses. Due to severe constraints of synthetic drugs and the increasing contraindications of their usage, there is a growing interest world over in the usage of natural products based on medicinal herbs, hence, there is an ever expanding market of herbs and herbal based medicinal preparations all over the world. This has culminated into an exponential increase in number of research groups in different geographical locations and generation of volume of research data in the field in a short span of time. The path breaking advancement in research methods and interdisciplinary approaches is giving birth to newer perspectives. Therefore, it becomes imperative to keep pace with the advancement in research and development in the field of medicinal herbs. There are a large number of researchers in different parts of the world working on various aspects of medicinal plants and ‘herbal medicines’. The idea is to bring their recent research work into light in the form of a book. The proposed book contains chapters by the eminent researchers in different countries and working with different disciplines of medicinal plants. Articles pertain to different disciplines such as: Resources and conservation of medicinal plants Biosynthesis and metabolic engineering of medicinal plants Tissue culture, propagation and bioreactor technology of medicinal plants Phytochemical research on medicinal plants Herbal medicines and plant-derived agents in cancer prevention and therapy 〈herbal medicines="" and="" plant-derived="" agents="" in="" metabolic="" syndrome="" management Herbal medicines and plant-derived agents in modulation of immune-related disorders Herbal medicines and hepatotoxicity The book will prove itself an asset for the researchers, professionals and also students in the area of medicinal plants and mechanism of their action

    Notes: Summary During the last 4 years, we have studied the adriamycin-DNA complex originally developed by Trouet and co-workers (1972). This paper summarizes the results of our pharmacologic and clinical studies. The complex is taken up by cells through an adsorptive pinocytosis, with DNA as the binding molecule. Excess DNA prevents uptake of the drug. Administration of the drug as the complex results in much higher serum concentration and a reduced urinary excretion. The complex is well tolerated, but side effects are probably of the same order as those seen with the free drug. An exception may be the heart. The acute toxicity is not seen when infusing the complex. Our experience with 20 children who have received more than 500 mg/m2 indicates that the chronic cardiac toxicity may be reduced, too. Spectacular, but anecdotal, results have been observed in a variety of solid tumors. Of 16 children with acute myelogenous leukemia, 14 went into a complete remission on a protocol of cytosine arabinoside in combination with the complex. Three of these children are now off therapy, with the longest observation period being 4 years and 4 months.

    Notes: The surface of PbTiO3 films prepared by the sol-gel method was analyzed by the use of x-ray photoelectron spectra combined with secondary-ion mass spectra and infrared absorption spectra. The results suggested that traces of organic materials still existed at least in the surface layer of the films. The outmost surface was partly covered by adsorbed oxygen. The surface layer of the film deviated from stoichiometry because of the shortage of Ti; the thickness of it was estimated about 400 A(ring).

    Abstract: Background: Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a pregnancy-specific hormone, proposed to be involved in the protective effect against breast cancer afforded to mothers who bear children. In comparison with normal pregnancies, Down syndrome pregnancies are characterized by further elevated hCG concentrations from late first trimester to the middle of the second trimester. This study aimed to compare the risk of breast cancer in women who gave birth to a child with Down syndrome (as a marker of elevated hCG exposure) with that of women who had only unaffected children. Methods: The study cohort included all mothers of live-born children in Norway and Sweden from 1967-1973 through 2004. During the study period, 54,063 women developed breast cancer; 5330 children with Down syndrome were born and 139 breast cancer cases were diagnosed in their mothers. We fitted Cox proportional hazards regression models to obtain relative risks of breast cancer, adjusted for risk factors for breast cancer, such as overall parity and age at births. Results: Mothers of Down syndrome children were at 23% increased risk to develop breast cancer (95% confidence interval = 4%-46%). The risk increase was limited to women who had a Down syndrome child after age 30, and seemed to be confined to women whose cancer was diagnosed before age 50. Conclusions: Study results do not support the hypothesis of a protective effect of elevated pregnancy hCG on maternal breast cancer. (Epidemiology 2009;20: 584-589)
