I am pleased to bring you Volume 13, Issue 4 of Pharmacognosy Communications. In this issue, we present a review of the use of Ayuvedic plants to treat gastrointestinal; bacterial infections. This review also summarises Ayuverdic principles and thereby explains the selection of plants for this purpose. This issue also presents a comprehensive review of the use of cyanobacterial extracts and isolated compounds to treat cancer. Additionally, we present two studies evaluating the anti-bacterial activity of Rubus idaeus L. (raspberry) and Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin. Ex Steud. leaf extracts, respectively. Our regular features are also continued in this issue. Two more high quality medicinal plant images are also included in this issue and a listing of upcoming conferences and meetings is also included. I encourage any conference organisers who would like to publicise their event to contact me with details so they can be included in future upcoming events sections of this journal. I look forward to bringing you the next issue of Pharmacognosy Communications in 3 months’ time. Keep submitting your quality research manuscripts and reviews and also consider becoming involved/submitting to the other sections (Janus Corner, Medicinal Plant Images etc.) of the journal. On behalf of the editorial board, we look forward to bringing you the next issue of Pharmacognosy Communications in 3 months’ time. Read more…
