Monographs on selected medicinal plants. Volume II
World Health Organization (WHO)
MetadataShow full item record
These WHO monographs are not pharmacopoeial monographs. Their purpose is to provide scientific information on the safety, efficacy and quality control/quality assurance of widely used medicinal plants, in order to facilitate their appropriate use in WHO’s Member States; to provide models to assist WHO’s Member States in developing their own monographs or formularies for these and other herbal medicines; and to facilitate information exchange among WHO’s Member States. The format used for volume 2 essentially follows that of volume 1. However, to keep relevant sections together, Geographical distribution now precedes Description; and Dosage forms appears before Posology.
