  • Recent Advances in Standardization of Herbal Drugs
    • Abstract: Background: Herbal drugs play a significant role to maintain the human healthiness and to treat the ailments since the dawn of civilization. Moreover, these plants have provided many lead compounds that culminated in modern medicine. A single herb is regarded as mini-combinatorial library of phytoconstituents hence the quality control of herbal drugs in an herbal formulation is not an easy task because a number of factors impact their pharmacological efficiency and consistent therapeutic effects. Hence, to provide consistent beneficial therapeutic effects, standardized herbal products of consistent quality and purity are required. Methods: This review is based on publications obtained by a selective search in PubMed using the keywords “Standardized herbal products”, “fingerprinting”, “authentication”, “chemometric, hyphenated techniques”, “quality control of herbal drugs”, “identification”. Results: In the era of modernization, chromatographic techniques coupled with sophisticated spectroscopic analytical methods are used in estimating the authenticity, identity and characteristic of herbal products. Further, with the advancement of computer technology, chemometrics methods have become a leading tool with an unsupervised pattern recognition technique for handling multivariate data without prior knowledge about the studied samples and mines more beneficial and valuable information about the chemical entities from the raw data. Conclusion: Standardization of HDs chromatographic fingerprint is not always a perfect way to present all compounds. To assess the quality of medicinal plants, new ways are regularly being explored such as combination chemical fingerprint with biological methods, biofingerprint and metabolic fingerprint quality metrology, pharmacodynamics and export system of medicinal plants have been researched in some groups but still a significant amount of work is required to achieve a perfect system for quality evaluation of herbal drugs. Further, novel chemometric techniques have been unfolded that mines more beneficial and valuable information about the chemical entities from the raw data. So this review emphasis mainly on hyphenated techniques associated with chemometric method used in herbal drugs for identifying more valuable information and various methods for providing data, among which most commonly used techniques are chemometric resolution method and Principal Component Analysis (PCA) method.

  • Comparative Evaluation of Antiulcer Activity of Ficus religiosa (Stem
           Bark) Extracts Prepared by Different Methods of Extraction
    • Abstract: Background: The stem bark of Ficus religiosa L. (Family-Moraceae) is traditionally used to treat gonorrhea, diarrhea, dysentery, leucorrhea, menorrhagia, vaginal and other urogenical disorders, ulcers and gastrohelcosis. Objective: The study was aimed at comparing antiulcer activity (ethanol induced gastric ulcer) for stem bark extracts of Ficus religiosa Linn. prepared by different extraction methods viz. soxhlet, ultrasonication and microwave assisted extraction. Methods: The powdered drug material was extracted by soxhlet (time 48 hours., temperature 60°C and solvent 60% ethanol), Ultrasonic (90 min., 50°C and acetone as solvent)and Microwave (3 min., 60°C and acetone as solvent) assisted extraction method. The acute toxicity study was carried out in adult female albino rats by “fix dose” method of OECD guideline no. 420 for selection of doses. Antiulcerogenic effect of prepared extracts (200mg/kg) was evaluated by ethanol induced ulcer method using omeprazole (40 mg/kg) as standard drug and absolute alcohol 99.5% as necrotizing agent. Result and Conclusion: Acute toxicity study did not show any significant toxicity signs and extracts were said to be practically non-toxic at tested dose level of 2000 mg/kg, b.w. The best antiulcer activity was shown by the hydroalcoholic extract prepared by soxhlet extraction method. Administration of ethanol produced significant ulcer index (41.00 ± 1.75) in the control group. Standard drug omeprazole (40 mg/kg) produced percentage protection of 70.31%. Among all three extracts, Ulcer index is significantly (p

  • WHO Guidelines in Practice in India: Stability Studies on Selected CNS
           Active Herbal Products Through Physicochemical, Chromatographic and
           Biological Evaluations
    • Abstract: Background & Objective: Accelerated stability study (40°C/75% RH, 6 months) as well as long term stability studies (30°C/65% RH, 36 months) are conducted on three batches (I-III) of two commercially available CNS active herbal products (A and B) containing Convolvulus pluricaulis with Centella asiatica or Bacopa monnieri. Methods: Stability samples were withdrawn at periodic intervals, and evaluated for physical stability (color, clarity, viscosity and pH), chemical stability (total phenolic (TPC), scopoletin, asiatic acid and bacoside A content), and biological activities (free radical scavenging, anti-acetylcholinesterase, and antianxiety). All stability samples retained the physical characteristics compared to corresponding control samples. Control samples exhibited significant batch-to-batch variation in TPC (46.8-65.9 mgGAE/L), scopoletin (165.78-206.15 ng/mL in A and 2.61-28.78 ng/mL in B), asiatic acid (30.14-44.92 μg/mL in B), free radical scavenging activity (IC50 0.5-1.25% v/v), AChE inhibitory activity (IC50 75.0-96.3% v/v), and antianxiety activity. Results: The chemical indicators and biological activities were significantly decreased in both accelerated and long term stability samples compared to corresponding control samples. A correlation between scopoletin and biological activities was established in products A whereas asiatic acid/C. asiatica defies the logical correlation in product B. Conclusion: The products exhibited significant batch-to-batch variation, and did not remain stable for the recommended shelf life period of three years, which suggested that these are suspected to lose therapeutic efficacy during their shelf life.

  • Isolation of Sinapic Acid from Habenaria intermedia D. Don: A New Chemical
           Marker for the Identification of Adulteration and Substitution
    • Abstract: Background: Vriddhi is one of the Rasayana herbs in Ayurveda broadly used in vitality, strengthening Ayurvedic formulations. To fulfill steeply increased demand and declined supply, tubers have been collected in destructive manner resulting in reduced plant population and pushing the plant in Red list of IUCN endangered species. However, manufacturers are using substitutes and other substandard drugs leading to adulteration which puts the importance of therapeutically rich herbal plants at stake. Lack of chemical markers is the main inability of regulatory authorities for not taking any action against this adulteration. Objective: Isolation of chemical marker of plant that can be used as a reference compound for identification of unauthorized substitution. Methods: Preliminary phytochemical screening of methanolic and toluene extract of H. intermedia D. Don was done using standard methods followed by column chromatography for the isolation of phytoconstituents. A total of 3004 fractions were collected with Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) profiling and different fractions were pooled. A single compound was isolated and confirmed by chemical test, melting point, spectral analysis and compared with the literature. Results: Phytochemical screening of extracts shows the presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, steroids, terpenoids, flavonoids, tannins and phenolics. A pure white crystalline powder was isolated by column chromatography which was characterized as 3,5-dimethoxy-4- hydroxycinnamic acid (Sinapic acid) with the help of IR and Mass spectroscopy. Conclusion: This is the first report of Sinapic acid as a novel compound from Vriddhi, Habenaria genus and Orchidaceae family. It can be used as a marker for the identification of unauthorized substitution and adulteration claiming the use of Vriddhi.
