Influence of Nutrients, Bioactive Compounds and Plant Extracts in Liver Diseases explores the role of plant-based natural compounds and the biological effects of these substances as they relate to liver disease, including the most prevalent - hepatitis, cancer and cirrhosis.
Providing evidence-based knowledge on the effect of phytochemicals in liver diseases, this book provides extensive coverage of compounds' mechanism of action, on the relation of structure and function of phytochemicals in hepatitis B and C, fatty liver disease, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, liver cancer, biliary cirrhosis and primary sclerosing cholangitis. The effect of the phytochemicals in the hepatotoxicity of drugs will also be addressed.
Written for health professionals seeking reliable and up-to-date information on the beneficial or toxic effects of natural compounds on liver disease, this book is sure to be a welcomed resource for nutritionists, food chemists, natural product researchers, pharmacists, medical doctors, and pharmacognosists alike.
