Title : Quality control & standardization of traditional herbal medicine


In spite of recent developments of antibiotics and newer synthetic drugs, 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 evergrowing 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. In the present paper an attempt has been made for a sequential study of the Quality Control of Herbal Medicinal Products (HMP) starting from the Selection of Medicinal Plants; Good Agricultural Practices (GAP); Cultivation; Good Field Collection Practices(GFCP); Organized and Unorganized Drugs; Source and Period of Collection; Identification; Storage; Chemical. Different stages, i.e Quality control studies of Raw Medicinal Plants, Controlled Studies of Method of Processing, Quality Control Studies of Finished Products, and Standardisation Procedures at each stage from the birth of the plants up to the clinical application of herbal medicine will be dealt with reference to some medicinal herbs. An emphasis has been given on the protocols which are required for the Registration of Herbal Medicinal Products ( HMP).

  • Does this provide a practical solution to a problem e.g. to check adulteration in herbal medicines
  • I am not sure it will improve the accuracy of a design, or provide new information to assist in a design problem, but will give a complete idea of manufacturing a drug from field to pharmacy.
