About this book

This book summarizes experimentally-supported research on the therapeutic efficacy of plant extracts and their constituents on a range of respiratory diseases including infections. It discusses the pharmacological, cellular and molecular factors involved in the pathogenies of respiratory diseases and their modulation by plant-derived compounds. Additionally, it underlines the growing relevance of medicinal plant-based advanced drug delivery systems for treating lung diseases providing maximal therapeutic efficacy with better patient compliance. Overall, this comprehensive book is a blend of translational, biological, chemical and drug delivery aspects of medicinal plants employed in targeting respiratory diseases and attracts a range of audiences including physiochemist, translational and clinical researchers working in the field of respiratory diseases.

About the authors

Dr. Kamal Dua is a Senior Lecturer in the Discipline of Pharmacy at the Graduate School of Health, University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Australia. He has research experience of over 12 years in the field of drug delivery systems targeting inflammatory diseases. Dr Dua is also a Node Leader of Drug Delivery Research in the Centre for Inflammation at Centenary Institute/UTS, where the targets identified from the research projects are pursued to develop novel formulations as the first step towards translation into clinics. Dr Dua researches in two complementary areas; drug delivery and immunology, specifically addressing how these disciplines can advance one another helping the community to live longer and healthier. This is evidenced by his extensive publication record in reputed journals. Dr. Dua’s research interests focus on harnessing the pharmaceutical potential of modulating critical regulators such as Interleukins and microRNAs and developing new and effective drug delivery formulations for the management of chronic airway diseases. He has published more than 80 research articles in peer-reviewed international journals and authored or co-authored 4 books.  He is an active member of many national and international professional societies

Dr Srinivas Nammi is working as Senior Lecturer in Pharmacology and Academic Course (BMedSc) at the School of Science, Western Sydney University (WSU), Australia. He holds a doctorate in Pharmaceutical Sciences, specializing in Pharmacology from Andhra University, India. Before joining the WSU, he worked at the Faculty of Pharmacy, University  of  Sydney,  after  gaining  postdoctoral  experience  as  DAAD  Fellow  at  the  University  of  Tübingen, Germany and the University of Manitoba, Canada. He has 1 international patent and has published over 80 scientific papers, 10 editorials and 3 book chapters. He is also serving as Secretary for the Australian DAAD Alumni Association.

Prof Dennis Chang holds a doctorate and MSc degree in Pharmacology from the University of Sydney, Australia. His research interests include clinical and pharmacological studies of complementary medicine (CM). He is a chief investigator of several significant Phase II and III clinical trials to evaluate CM interventions (herbal medicine, yoga and Tai Chi) for the treatment of dementia, mild cognitive impairment, coronary heart disease, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. He has led numerous laboratory-based pharmacological studies of herbal medicines to evaluate pharmacokinetics/bioavailability and mechanisms of action underlying the neuro- and cardiac-protective effects of herbal medicines.

Dr. Dinesh Kumar Chellappan holds PhD and Master’s degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Manipal University, India. He has worked on several research projects focused on inflammatory diseases with the core area in diabetes treatment and management. He is actively involved in undertaking research in chronic inflammatory pulmonary diseases, particularly developing and testing novel drug delivery systems. He has published more than 100 research articles in reputed national and international journals.

Dr Gaurav Gupta is currently is working as an Associate Professor with Suresh Gyan Vihar University, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. He holds a doctoral degree from Pacific University, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. He has more than nine years of experience in molecular and biochemical pharmacology including phytochemistry and respiratory diseases, psychopharmacology, and cancer biology by employing experimental animal models to understand the cellular and molecular mechanism. Dr Gupta has more than 150 research and review articles in the national and international journals of repute.

Dr. Trudi Collet is a leader of Innovative Medicines Group (IMG) at Kelvin Grove campus of the Queensland University of Technology and is involved in evaluating the biological properties of plant-derived bioactive compounds and extracts including their bactericidal, viricidal, and wound healing properties. She has done her PhD from the Queensland University of Technology in 2007. Earlier, she has worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research and investigated novel serological markers for differential diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease.
