The survival, existence and the potential of a system of medicine solely depends upon the
purity, quality, genuineness and the authenticity of the drugs used by the system. Hence,
drug standardization plays a prime role to ensure safety, efficacy, quality and
pharmaceutical uniformity. The standards of homoeopathic drugs are drawn on the basis of
studies on pharmacognostical, physico-chemical and pharmacological parameters for each
The present volume "Standardization of Homoeopathic Drugs" is the fourth in the series and
contains data of twelve homoeopathic drugs studied at Homoeopathic Drug Research
Institute, Lucknow, Drug Standardization Units at Ghaziabad and Hyderabad.
The Council would like to acknowledge the guidance and expertise provided by the learned
members of the Task Force on Drug Standardization. Thanks are also due to the scientists of
the Council who have been involved in various standardization studies on the drugs
included in this volume. Acknowledgments are also due to the co-ordination team related to
drug standardization at Council's headquarters, New Delhi. The Survey of Medicinal Plants
and Collection Unit, Nilgiris (Tamil Nadu) deserves appreciation for supplying authentic raw
drugs to the Drug Standardization centers of the Council for such studies.
I hope, this publication would be of interest to the homoeopathic pharmacies, drug
manufacturers, scientists, researchers, professionals and students.
