Thus, cas- cara sagrada, senna, podophyllum, and castor oil are considered at one time be- cause of their action on the intestinal tract. Of these, a surprisingly large number are still important in modern medicine. However, he is expected to know the chemical nature of his drugs, re- gardless of their nature or synthetic origin, so that he may predict incompatibilities, solubility, palatability, and therapeutic and toxic effects.

Dragendorff in the s, gave way in this century to adsorption chromatography, which in turn spawned ion exchange, paper partition, and thin- layer techniques before developing into high pressure liquid chromatography HPLC and gas chromatography. Assays on living an- imals as well as on intact or excised tyer often indicate the strength of the drug or its preparations.

This is not to imply that either one of these methods will be used in its present form in the future. The insects that infest, vegetable drugs belong chiefly to the orders Lepidoptera, Coleop- tera, and Diptera. Low-molecular-weight compounds in- clude terpenoids, alkaloids, phenols or quinones, and lipids. Matting-covered pack- ages of cinnamon from the Far East, se- roons bales covered with cowhide con- taining sarsaparilla from South America, lead flasks with oil of rose from Bulgaria, and many other odd forms of packaging are noted in the drug trade.

Because of the interest it engenders in many of the scientists of today, pharma- cognosy is a respected discipline that has no counterpart in the other professions. Successful dis- covery and development of new plant drugs in the strict regulatory climate that prevails in the United States must be a broad interdisciplinary effort involving ex- perts in a number of fields, including plant taxonomy, ethnobotany, pharmacognosy, biochemistry, analytical chemistry, phar- macology, pharmaceutics, and medicine.

Substances, usually pro- toplasmic in origin that cause unusual re- sponses in hypersensitive individuals: Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. Emphasis is placed on the phar- maceutically important secondary constit- uents because the student has already pharmacognoey quired a knowledge of the biosynthesis of most primary constituents sugars, fats, amino acids, etc. Nearly 3 centuries ago, the London apothecary James Petiver published the re- sults of his experiments that demonstrated that closely related plants frequently pos- sess similar physiologic activities, or, as he put it, “herbs of the same make.

Essential oils that rep- resent the odoriferous principles of plants: An example of a drug subjected to such an action is comfrey, or symphytum. East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. Dicotyledons, Pharmazie, 15 Tn a like manner, drugs containing volatile oils, or resins, tuler tannins, or glycosides can be classified in their respective phytochemical groups.


They are devoted to drug-related topics of considerable significance to many practicing pharmacists. Drugs such as lanolin and milk products, as well as hormones, endocrine products, and some enzymes, are obtained from do- mesticated hogs, sheep, or cattle. Phamacognosy other cases, plants are common to a much larger territory than the specific name indicates, such as Primus virginiana. The list of potentially useful plant drugs could be extended considerably, but one more general example is worthy of men- tion.

A number of the drugs used by the ancients braady still employed in much the same manner by today’s medical practi- tioners. Gums, res- ins, and extracts are shipped in barrels, boxes, or casks.

However, if evidence of toxicity is found, the drug is promptly withdrawn from the market.

Environmental factors that can produce variations in secondary plant constituents include soil, climate, associated flora, and methods of cultivation. Another method of identification is the comparison of a rep- resentative unknown sample to a pub- lished description of the drug and to au- thentic drug samples. The manipulations of plant cells, plant genes, and plant en- zymes, rather than of the plants them- selves, should provide us with a host of useful bradu agents.

Significant new drugs of natural origin and new meth- ods of producing them will continue to be important parts of that service.
