The book comprehensively details the novel and biologically active compounds derived from algae for sustainable healthcare delivery that could be used for the treatment of an ever-increasing population, prevention of high rate of morbidity rates, as well as in the treatment of numerous diseases, and serve as an alternative drug for the prevention of high level of resistance to synthetic drugs.
This second volume places a special emphasis on the discovery of novel and biologically active compounds from algae. It covers a wide range of applications, including the use of astaxanthin and carotenoids derived from algae for the production of nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, additives, food supplements, and feed. The book also discusses the production of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and their biomedical applications, recent advancements in the research of sulfated polysaccharides from algal origin, and their antiulcer bioactivities. Other topics include the application of algae in wound healing, the use of nanotechnology for the bioengineering of useful metabolites derived from algae and their multifaceted applications, and the production of single-cell proteins and pigments with high relevance in the industry.
Researchers in industry and academia as well as clinicians in the fields of microbiology, biotechnology, and food science will find this book very pertinent.
