Special Issue on Pleiotropic effects of statins

The aim of this special issue is to present articles to evaluate the beneficial effect of statins on diseases other than dyslipidemia. There is a big controversy in literature when evaluating the pleiotropic effect of statins and many of these studies are done in a small scale which further complicates acquiring correct and clear conclusions. So further studies are helping the scientific community to gain deep understanding of the pleiotropic effect of statins and either opens a new gate for additional indications for statins or close the door for further research in this respect.

About the issue

The scope of topics covered in the this issue include:

  • Evaluating the effect of statins in different autoimmune diseases
  • Evaluating the effect of statins in different inflammatory disorders
  • Evaluating anti tumor activity of statins
  • Comparing the pleiotropic effects among different statins

Special Issue on Infectious Diseases and Alternative Medicines

Microbial diseases are responsible for heavy mortality in human beings. The problems in the farms are usually tackled by preventing disease outbreaks or by treating the actual disease with drugs or chemicals. Antibiotics used in both human as well as veterinary medicines have been tried experimentally to treat microbial infections. Decreased efficacy and resistance of pathogens to antibiotics has necessitated development of new alternatives. Microbial resistance to antibiotics has been a great problem for many years. Due to the in discriminating use of antimicrobial drugs, the microorganisms have developed resistance to many commercial antibiotics. Development of such newer disease causing pathogens and evolution of existing microorganisms has resulting severe consequences including mortality of patients. The expanding bacterial resistance to antibiotics has become a growing concern worldwide. Intensive care physicians consider antibiotic resistance bacterial a significant problem in the treatment of patients. Increasing bacterial resistance is prompting resurgence in research of the antimicrobial role of herbs against resistant strains. A vast number of natural products have been recognized as valuable resources of natural antimicrobial compounds. The special issue on “Infectious Diseases and Alternative Medicines” in “American Journal of Pharmacological Science” will publish high quality research and review articles which contribute new scientific findings in all areas of Pharmaceutical Science. The journal welcomes the researchers for the submission of their high quality research and review paper.

Special Issue on Breaking the skin barrier: Current advancement in drug delivery via skin

Drug delivery through skin is an attractive alternative to the conventional routes and offers completely non-invasive to minimally invasive drug delivery options for the better compliance of the patients. The beauty of skin is its impermeability which ensures survival on the dry land. Skin not only protects internal organs from injury but also restricts ingress of foreign entities, protects form harmful irradiations and most importantly water evaporation form the body. With all these unique characteristics, skin has been extensively studied to overcome its barrier properties reversibly in order to deliver therapeutic agents. Not only delivering drugs remained the major objective, but also accidental exposure of chemicals for the risk assessment has been extensively studied over the years.

This issue will contain state-of-the-art reviews and original research articles covering outstanding and most recent research from the eminent scientists working in the field of drug delivery through skin. This issue not only highlights the major challenges and their solutions in designing optimum formulations for skin delivery but also in-depth mechanism relating to the strategies of overcoming the barrier properties of the skin will be presented. It is envisaged that this issue will contain 5-10 outstanding manuscripts including original research and outstanding review articles form authors around the globe.

Special Issue on Screening of Drugs from Natural Origin with Special Emphasis on Diabetes

Mankind is dependent on the various gifts of nature especially on the plant kingdom, from the first day of their lives for the different facets of life, including the health care system as well. Since time immemorial, plants have been extensively used by the people for the treatment of myriad disease and disorders. The rational study on folklore medicine provides a valuable approach in the search for the development of new and effective therapeutic agents from the arsenal of natural products.
Nowadays diabetes is one of the most vulnerable diseases worldwide, especially because of the lack of the appropriate drug that can control completely the pathological condition without producing any side effects. Most of the current therapeutic agents have some sort of adverse effects, so the scientists from different parts of the world are actively engaged in the search of biomolecules from herbals, which has less adverse effects but significant pharmacological action, at the same time, is cost effective. Antidiabetic agents from plant origin are often found to be less toxic or sometimes nontoxic in nature.

About the issue

People of 21st century are very much busy and their life style is responsible for one of the deadly disease diabetes, also known as silent killer. Several countries established more and less successful national diabetes programmes to improve treatment of the disease. Diabetes is a disease for both developed and developing countries. Natural remedies for diabetes are considered significantly due to their less toxic effects and economical point of view. Naturally occurring compounds are of great interest to biologist because these compounds can be tailored following an appreciate choice of the legend, granting to these compounds a potential for multiple applications. Exercise (Yoga), food supplement and maintenance of life style play a major role for the management of diabetes and its complications.
