Evaluation of Herbal Medicinal Products eBook

First edition


Edited by Peter Houghton - King's College, London and Pulok K Mukherjee - Director, School of Natural Product Studies, Jadavpur University, Kolkota, India

The intention of this book is to describe and assess different approaches and techniques for evaluating the quality and efficacy of herbal medicines.

The enormous growth in the market for herbal medicinal products in the last 25 years has been one of the most interesting aspects of healthcare in the developed world. The rediscovery of natural substances with therapeutic potential has, however, provoked demand by legislators and the public for assurance of safe and effective use.

Evaluation of Herbal Medicinal Products addresses some of these demands, looking at:

  • general aspects
  • pharmacology and clinical aspects
  • quality and safety aspects


It brings together articles on current thinking and practice in these areas and highlights up-to-date research which should facilitate improvements in the topics under consideration. This book seeks to provide a state-of-the-art review, which will inform and guide those who seek to promote the use of herbal medicinal products.

It will be an indispensable resource for academic and industrial researchers and both undergraduate and postgraduate pharmacy students.
