Since ancient times, humans have been using plants for body care and health. The well-established use of medicinal plants is attributed to the Sumerians, even though archaeological studies have traced their use back to 60,000 years ago. Over the past century, the large production of synthetic drugs has obscured the benefits of natural sources in most of the western world. In the recent years, the “renaissance” of herbal sources has occurred drawing the attention of the scientific community; therefore, pharmaceutical research is moving towards the scientific validation of medicinal plants from all over the world. Authors are invited to submit original research articles, reviews, and short communications exploring recent advances in this field ranging from basic science to clinical studies. Topics include but are not limited to, innovative analytical method for the determination of phytochemical constituents, in vitro and in vivo evaluation of the activities, formulations of herbal extracts.
