Herbal Products Toxicology and Clinical Pharmacology Second Edition Edited By Timothy S. Tracy and Richard L. Kingston.
Herbal Products: Toxicology and Clinical Pharmacology, Second Edition builds upon the informative foundation laid by its predecessor. This fully revised and expanded second edition boasts over 200 new references that document efficacy studies and adverse effects and four new chapters devoted to dietary products.
Each of the chapters in this volume includes an Introduction, which contains a review of the product’shistory and a description of the plant. This is followed by sections on Commonly Promoted Uses, Sources and Chemical Composition, and descriptions of Products Available, which is kept general.
because of the myriad and ever-changing products on the market, Product quality is also discussed in this section.
The Pharmacological/Toxicological Eects section focuses on in vitro data and animal studies chosen to provide an explanation for the herb’s mechanism of action, clinical eects in humans, and rationale for clinical studies.
As a result, there is generally a mismatch among the nature of the information presented in the Commonly Promoted Uses and Pharmacological/Toxicological Eects sections. However, emphasis is placed on inclusion of basic science data and clinical studies that relate to the promoted uses.
The Pharmacokinetics section of each chapter covers absorption, tissue distribution, elimination, and body uid concentrations. Such pharmacokinetic information is usually not included in other sources and may be useful in forensic investigations or in the clinical setting regarding use of the product in patients with renal or hepatic insuciency.
Practitioners and researchers will find that this volume is a comprehensive resource for objective clinical information about the potential uses, efficacy, and safety of herbal medicines. The authors recognize that the majority of available information on dietary supplements is typically provided by distributors and designed to sell a product rather than objectively inform consumers; therefore, the emphasis throughout is on information not readily available from any other source. Similar to the first edition, this volume is based on original studies published in peer-reviewed journals, as well as meta-analyses, systematic reviews, and other high-quality assessments by recognized experts.
Each chapter ends with a discussion of Regulatory Status of the product.
