P 14 Quality of Practitioners and Prescriptions and the relevance to clinical studies

Our panel aims to highlight issues surrounding ethnomedicine, ethnopharmacy and pharmacognosy. The presentations address areas concerned with the quality and authentication of traditional remedies and how these issues can impact on establishing high quality human intervention studies. We provide examples of medicinal plant value chains and how modern techniques, including DNA authentication and metabolomic studies can inform best practice.
