Title : Safety and quality of traditional herbal medicinal product


A vast majority of people depend on traditional medicines for their primary healthcare needs and it can safely be presumed that a major part of traditional therapy involves the use of plant extracts or their active principles. In recent years with ever-growing commercialization in the field of herbal medicines, there has been an instant demand for quality control of the drugs used in this system. The studies on the identity, purity, and quality of the genuine drug will enhance information in checking the adulteration. A set of standards would no doubt be a deterrent to substitution and adulteration and also an aid for ‘Drug law Enforcement. The present talk incorporates study from the birth of the plant to its clinical application which is a dire need for all concerned to have a knowledge of GAP, GFCP, GLP, CGMP, and the possible adulterations. This study deals with approaches towards establishing Safety & Quality starting from a preliminary examination of a medicinal plant, its morpho-anatomical, pharmacognostic, physicochemical, and analytical parameters, foreign organic matter, pesticide residue, radioactive and microbial contamination, chemical assay, fingerprinting of different extractives using modern extractors, Chromatographic and Spectroscopic techniques, phytochemical screening, quantitative analysis of inorganic constituents and standardization with special reference to marker compounds in plant species and their fingerprinting along with its modern perspectives.

Audience Take Away Notes:

  • Most of the herbal medicines that were approved and marketed have now been withdrawn due to serious adverse effect and adulteration.
  • Because of the high cost of pharmaceutical medications and possible side effects, the use of alternative forms from natural products is considered as a promising tool in the management and treatment of obesity.
  • Surely, this should be included as a subject.
  • Traditional medicinal plants and their active phytoconstituents have been used for treatment od different ailments..
  • Besides food , plants have always been a common source of medicines either as such or as dietary supplements.
