This book series gives a comprehensive overview of the adverse effects of botanical medicines. It provides introductory information on Botany, Chemistry, Pharmacology and Uses, followed by an Adverse Reaction Profile subdivided according to organ and function. The third contribution to the series gives important information about eighteen specific medicinal herbs and important plant constituents. The herbs and constituents have been selected for several reasons, such as a prominent place in phytotherapy, clinical expectations about therapeutic potential and recent concern about a serious adverse reaction. The World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe (Copenhagen) has supported the book in the form of an acknowledgement that has been prepared by this Office.
