Overview

A comprehensive overview of this genus, Artemisia examines all aspects of the herbs uses and applications, its mode of action and clinical importance. Following a comprehensive introduction to the genus, the book discusses the botanical, phytochemical and biological aspects of a number of important species of Artemisis. Considering that the discovery of artemisinin, a highly active antimalarial agent from the Chinese herb A. annua is of considerable importance, this volume devotes several chapters to the traditional uses, cultivation and phytochemistry of this species and to the development of artemisinin-derived antimalarial agents, their mode of action and clinical use.
