Prof. Dr S. Arora delivered a lecture on increasing development of phytopharmaceutical from marine sources. Increasing number of antimicrobial and antiviral compounds are being developed from marine sources including mollusks, actinomyosis and other species. Apart from various phytopharmaceutical, a large number of sulphated long-chain carbohydrates derivatives, including fucans and lectins, are being explored for their utility as antiretroviral agents and for other therapeutic activities. The same were proposed as potential project area for research in phytopharmaceuticals field.
