Pharmacognosy and Phytotherapy

Harvesting and conservation of medicinal plants. Quality controls of plant material. Identity of sample, origin, macro e micromorphologic examination. Drugs containing phenols, coumarins, flavonoids, tannins, carotenoids. The term "pharmacognosy" was used for the first time by the Austrian physician Schmidt in 1811 and 1815 by Crr. Anotheus Seydler in work titled Analecta Pharmacognostica. Originally during the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century "pharmacognosy" was used to define the branch of medicine or commodity sciences which deals with drugs in their crude, or unprepared, form. Crude drugs are the dried, unprepared material of plant, animal or mineral origin, used for medicine. The study of these materials under the name pharmakognosie was first developed in German-speaking areas of Europe, while other language areas often used the older term materia medica taken from the works of Galen and Dioscorides. As late as the beginning of the 20th century, the subject had developed mainly on the botanical side, being particularly concerned with the description and identification of drugs both in their whole state and in powder form. Drugs containing terpenoids or steroids. Alkaloid-containing drugs. Phytotherapic treatments of respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, urogenital diseases. Phytotherapic treatments for disorders of the central nervous system. Phytotherapic treatments for inflammation. Evaluation of extraneous elements, weight loss at drying.
