The survival, existence and the potential of a system of medicine solely depends upon the purity, quality,
genuineness and the authenticity the drugs used by the system. Hence, Drug Standardization plays a prime
role in the development of the particular system of medicine; The Homoeopathic System of Medicine mainly
uses drugs of plant origin. The Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy has conducted Drug Standardization studies of more than 200 plants used in the system of Homoeopathic treatment.
The present work has been carried out at the four Drug Standardization Centers of the Council viz., Central
Research Institute (Homoeopathy), Kolkata, Homoeopathic Drug Research Institute, Luck now, Drug Stand-
radiation Units at Ghaziabad and Hyderabad, embodying detailed studies of the drugs from pharmacognostical,
physicochemical and pharmacological aspects.
I hope that this contribution will be of great interest and use to the medical profession, pharmacognosists,
academicians, researchers, pharmaceutical industries and Homoeopathic professionals in particular.
I gratefully acknowledge the guidance and advice received for the above study from the members of the
Scientific Advisory Committee and Sub-committee on Drug Standardization of the Council.
My sincere thanks are due to the Scientists involved with the work for their contribution for the study and
compilation of the work.
