Department of Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry, KLEU’S College of Pharmacy

Pharmacognosy is study of the physical, chemical, biochemical and biological properties of drugs, drug substances or potential drugs or drug substances of natural origin as well as the search for new drugs from natural sources.

The Department conducts research work such as Phytochemical screening of natural drugs based on Ethnobotanical clues or traditional usage based on folklore. Plant preparations are said to be medicinal or herbal when they are used to promote health beyond basic nutrition. The study of drugs from plants includes the subjects of botany, chemistry and pharmacology. (more…)

Department of Pharmacognosy and Botany, Tbilisi State University

Department of Pharmacognosy and Botany was established in 1919 as the “Cathedra of Pharmacy and Pharmacognosy” at pharmaceutical division of Tbilisi State University. The first chief of the cathedra was Academician I. Kutateladze (1921-1925). From 1926 the Cathedra of Pharmacognosy became an independent unit, which, as the subordinate of Pharmaceutical and Medical Institute, was managed by Prof. E. Aboll (1926-1952), Prof. V. Shotadze (1952-1962) and Prof. L. Eristavi (1962-1997). Since 1997 the cathedra has been headed by Prof. J. Kuchukhidze. From 1930, the course of botany was added to the Cathedra of Pharmacognosy, which, after organization of Pharmaceutical Institute, was rearranged into the Cathedra of Botany, and from 1953 was joined to the Cathedra of Pharmacognosy as an independent docent course.

Department of Pharmacognosy, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology

Pharmacognosy, defined as the study of the physical, chemical, biochemical and biological properties of drugs or potential drugs or drug substances of natural origin as well as the search for new drugs from natural sources is a specialized area of applied science which deals with natural products that affect the health of humans and animals. Due to the widespread use of botanicals in developing as well as their resurgence in industrialized nations, significant concerns have been raised about their quality, safety and efficacy. Pharmacognosy plays a critical role in ensuring the authenticity, purity and consistency of the materials employed in this regard. It contributes significantly to the practice of Pharmacy and Herbal Medicine. The Department of Pharmacognosy offers various courses as part of the 4 year Bachelor of Pharmacy (B.Pharm) and Bachelor of Science in Herbal Medicine (BSc. Herbal Medicine) degree programmes.

Division of Medicinal Chemistry & Pharmacognosy, The Ohio State University

The areas of medicinal chemistry and pharmacognosy focus on the interdisciplinary application of chemical and biochemical principles to the identification and development of therapeutic agents. Research in medicinal chemistry includes the synthesis of organic medicinal products, elucidation of the biochemistry of medicinal agents, examination of the relationship of chemical structure to biological activity, qualitative and quantitative analysis of drugs and related products, and application of computational chemistry to drug design. Research in pharmacognosy encompasses the isolation and structure determination of pharmacologically active natural products from plants and microbes, studies on the structure and biochemistry of biological products, examination of the biosynthesis of natural products, and evaluation of the biochemical effects of these active constituents.

Department of Pharmacognosy- Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences

Pharmacognosy

Starting from microscopy, pharmacognosy has developed into a hightech science during the last 40 years. Today, it plays an integral role in the field of Pharmaceutical Sciences through the discovery, identification, and evolution of bioactive compounds from natural sources. Studies of plants used in European, North American, African, and Asian traditional medicine are conducted with the goals of identifying bioactive constituents and discovering new lead compounds.

Pharmaceutical Screening

Main interests are in the field of plant constituents with anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, antioxidant, as well as antimicrobial activities, with a spezial emphasis on antimycobacterial activity. The inhibition of leukotriene biosynthesis in human granulocytes by 5-LOX and inhibition of 12(S)-HETE formation by 12-LOX in human platelets as cellular tests, and inhibition of prostaglandin biosynthesis by COX-1 and COX-2 as enzymatic in vitro assays, are established in our Department for screening and testing of extracts and pure compounds with anti-inflammatory activity.
