Botanicals drugs, defined by the US FDA as “products from plant materials, algae, macroscopic fungi, and combinations thereof”, have been used in traditional medicines for thousands of years. Despite their long history, it was only in the last two decades that rigorous scientific research and development of botanical drugs have gathered pace. Drugs such as artemisinin, derived from the sweet wormwood plant, was recognized by the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, exemplifies the promise of botanical drugs.
