Volume 5 continues the theme of the previous volume by presenting reviews of herbal therapies useful for treating different infectious diseases. The topics in this volume are of general interest to computational chemistry researchers, physicians, and a wide range of allied health practitioners. Other highlights in this volume include contributions on COVID-19 and traditional medicine in Algeria and China. The topics covered in this volume are:
– Improve curcumin and eugenol through computational chemistry and nanotechnology
– Herbal remedies for respiratory tract infections
– COVID-19 pandemic: a comprehensive overview of epidemiological aspects, pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapeutic interventions to combat the current epidemic
– Application of medium infrared spectroscopy on the therapeutic effects of phytotherapy in infectious diseases
– Traditional uses of plants from the Algerian pharmacopoeia against infectious diseases
– Traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of infectious diseases: history, progress and prospects
This volume is essential reading for all researchers in the field of chemistry and pharmacology of natural products. Healthcare professionals involved in internal medicine looking to improve their knowledge of herbal medicine and alternative therapies for tropical and other infectious diseases will also benefit from the content of the volume.

Ka Bian research focused on NO / cGMP signaling. Through research on human adult and / or embryonic and cancerous stem cells, Dr Bian proposed that NO / cGMP signaling exerts its pathological effects with two main mechanisms: The upstream iNOS-centric pathway is involved in pro-status. enhanced inflammatory disease which is a key component for cell damage and the formation of the cancer microenvironment. The downstream sGC / cGMP mediated pathway is responsible for the proliferation, differentiation and self-renewal of stem / cancer cells. Dr Bian is expanding the research into the area of cancer metastasis and therapeutic resistance, as deciphering the role of NO-sGC signaling would facilitate the development of strategies to interfere with malignant and metastatic processes.
