In today's world, when both simple and life-threatening infectious diseases are becoming increasingly appealing, novel treatments for the causative agents such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses are urgently needed. The goal of this book is to give a general overview of the many aspects of repurposing a medicine in comparison to the typical drug manufacturing system. It will provide a broad overview of the manufacturing process, as well as current methodologies and potential for traditional drug processing and medication repurposing. Drug repurposing of traditional plant-based medications has demonstrated to be a speedier and less expensive approach to treating both common and rare diseases, allowing new and more effective drugs to enter the market. The research and development industries have also discovered that it is considerably superior in terms of overcoming all of the drawbacks connected with traditional de novo drug synthesis. This scientific technique to identify new and more effective medicinal molecules is a pressing necessity in the present scenario of life-threatening diseases.
