Limits of medical treatment research

Frontiers in Clinical Drug Research – Anti infectives is a book series that brings up-to-date reviews to readers interested in learning more about advances in the development of pharmaceutical agents for the treatment of infectious diseases. The scope of the book series covers a range of topics, including the chemistry, pharmacology, molecular biology, and biochemistry of natural and synthetic drugs used in the treatment of infectious diseases. Reviews in this series also include research on multidrug resistance and preclinical/clinical findings on new antibiotics, vaccines, antifungal agents, and antituberculosis agents.

The eighth volume in this series presents comprehensive reviews of interest to readers interested in the treatment of inflammatory diseases, new antiviral agents and strategies, specific antiprotozoal drugs that work against leishmanias and helminths, and a study of agents against American foulbrood in honey bees.

The 7 journals included in this volume are:

– Monoclonal antibodies as therapeutic agents for inflammatory diseases

– Pharmacotherapy of emerging antiviral agents

– Antiviral activity of vitamin D and COVID-19: current understanding

– Anti-infective to fight leishmaniasis
