Department of AYUSH, ICMR and CSIR work together to achieve safe, effective AYUSH products for the identified diseases and to develop new drugs. 5 6. Indian Council of Medical Research Founded in 1911 as Indian Research Fund Association Renamed as ICMR in 1949 Apex organization to formulate, conduct, coordinate and promote biomedical research 6 7. ICMRs Research on herbal drugs 1911 onwards - ICMR 1964 70 : Composite Drug Research Scheme 1983 Disease oriented approach 2000 onwards - Collaboration between ICMR & Dept. of AYUSH (earlier ISM & H) Golden Triangle Partnership Program 2005 ICMR NIF Initiative 7 8.

Spends on Traditional Medicine Development NCCAM, USA USD 123.1 m in 2005 increase by 0.5 % in 2006 WHO - 3 months if there are reports suggesting toxicity when a larger multicentric Phase III trials are subsequently planned based on the results of Phase II study. Adverse Drug Reaction & drug-herb interaction should be reported 13 14. Protocol Group of experts should include experts from traditional systems of medicine. GCP compliant trial design Biostatistician to be involved while designing clinical trial protocol. Pilot studies can be observational Ideal to conduct a randomized, controlled trial to validate Monitoring must to detect toxicity as well as efficacy Statistical analysis should be presented in a manner that is likely to facilitate the interpretation of their clinical importance. 14 15. Monitoring To be based on considerations such as objective, purpose, design, complexity, blinding, size and end points of the trial. To be conducted and documented properly in accordance with GCP. Efficacy to be based on such defined endpoints as, specific clinical symptoms or signs, or defined prognostic laboratory markers. Safety to be monitored on the basis of either symptoms or signs,particularly to end points that may signal anticipated toxicity. Laboratory indicators of liver, kidney, cardiac or haematological toxicity. 15 16. Special Concerns for Herbal Remedies 1)For all researchers GCP Guidelines also pertain to traditional drugs Herbal remedies and medicinal plants to be incorporated in modern system must follow DCGIs guidelines Multidisciplinary Expert group for designing and evaluating the study from concerned systems : ideal for multicentric studies. Association with physicians from the concerned system shall be necessary as co-investigators / collaborators if trial is in Modern Medicine Hospitals 2)Researchers from Indian Systems of Medicine Guidelines not binding for evaluation of traditional drugs for use in their own hospitals / clinics 16 17.

Herbal medicinal products fall within the scope of the European Directive 2001/83/EC that foresees marketing of each medicinal product and requires an ad hoc authorisation to be granted on the basis of results of tests and experimentations concerning quality, safety and efficacy. The main features of Directive 2001/EC are traditional herbal medicine definition, simplified registration procedure, provisions for community herbal monographs and community list of herbal substances and preparations and establishment of the Committee for Herbal Medicinal Products(HMPC). 26 27. Most individual herbal medicinal products are licensed nationally by member states, the process for licensing and information of herbal substances and, preparations is harmonised across the European Union. IN United Kingdom, to get a product registered, companies have to submit a dossier to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) demonstrating that it meets the requirements of quality, safety and patient information as per the Traditional Herbal Registration Scheme. The HMPC evaluates scientifically all available information including non-clinical and clinical data but also documented long-standing use and experience in the Community. 27 28. Community monographs are divided into two columns: well-established use (marketing authorisation) and traditional use (simplified registration). Well-established use section describes the safety and efficacy data while traditional use section is accepted on the basis of sufficient safety data and plausible efficacy. The Committee on Herbal Medicinal Products (HMPC) has developed procedure to invite the public to submit scientific data on herbal substances and preparations. The provided information may then be used by the Committee in the development of Community monographs and to Community list entries. 28 29. The European Scientific Cooperative on Phytotherapy (ESCOP) The European Scientific Cooperative on Phytotherapy (ESCOP) was founded in 1989, the main objectives being to establish harmonized criteria for the assessment of phytomedicines, to support scientific research and to contribute to the acceptance of phytotherapy at a European level. In October 1990, the first five monographs were presented at a symposium in Brussels and were officially handed over to representatives of the European Community. After a thorough assessment, the Committee on Proprietary Medicinal Products (CPMP) published four monographs on anthraquinone laxatives in May 1994 29 30. United States of America 30 31. In United States, the term complementary/alternative medicines (CAM) are most commonly used for traditional medicine systems.
