Extract of different parts of plants to cure various diseases have been practiced since ancient period. These extracts are been part of the primary source of medicine in rural areas of the developing countries. It is been estimated that about 80% of the population in developing countries use traditional medicines as the health care medications. Newer plant based medicines are in the process of development using suitable drug delivery system and subsequent preclinical and clinical trials using modern techniques.
