Curcumin is derived from the root of the plant Curcuma longa (also called turmeric). Its medicinal uses have been known and described for more than 5000 years. In the last half-century, more than 1500 published research papers have revealed that curcumin is potentially useful in the treatment of wide variety of inflammatory diseases, through modulation of numerous molecular targets. This includes cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, psoriasis and more. This is the first monograph to deal specifically with this subject. It will be of interest to researchers, scientists, professionals, clinicians, physicians, graduate students in the fields of immunology, cancer biology, microbiology, infectious disease, virology, pharmacology, food science/food microbiology, and medicine.
