Abstract

Marine drugs are extremely important in pharmacology, whether directly or indirectly. In recent years, the study of drugs derived from marine natural resources has experienced a rebirth. Based on contemporary medical theory, marine pharmacology is a novel area of pharmacy that studies marine natural substances and develops them into pharmaceuticals to treat disease. It is a distinctive course that covers pharmaceutical formulations as well as marine natural chemicals and their pharmacological effects. An array of taxonomically diverse algae, fungi, bacteria, seaweed, mangrove plants, and other planktons make up the marine ecosystem. Secondary metabolites with various structures and pharmacological activities are abundant in marine organisms. The recent increase in the number of patents published justifies the importance of this study for identifying new entities as sources of therapeutic agents. The new compounds are said to have anticancer, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective properties. Marine pharmacology is a brand-new area of cross-disciplinary study that calls for a thorough understanding and practical application of many different fields of knowledge. Therefore, this review presents background data on recent advances in marine pharmacology and emphasizes the subjects that need further study.

Keywords: Algae, marine pharmacy, metabolites, planktons, pharmacology
