  1. Kratom and Other Mitragynines

    The Chemistry and Pharmacology of Opioids from a Non-Opium Source

    Edited by Robert B. Raffa

    Opioids such as morphine, codeine, and oxycodone are extracts or analogs isolated from a single source: the opium poppy. For a long time, it was believed to be nature’s only source of opioids. But it now appears that biological diversity has evolved an alternative source of opioid compounds—those...

  4. Rational Basis for Clinical Translation in Stroke Therapy

    Edited by Giuseppe Micieli, Diana Amantea

    Series: Frontiers in Neurotherapeutics Series

    Stroke remains one of the major causes of death and long-term disability worldwide. Currently, the only approved therapy for the acute treatment of this disease is thrombolysis, a strategy that can only be applied to a small percentage of patients due to its narrow therapeutic window. Unfortunately...
