Regulation of Natural Products – a Global Challenge

Transfer of Animal Data to the Clinical Situation
December 1, 2023, 3.00 PM – 5.30 PM (CET), online

For many natural products, there is a tradition of clinical use in humans. Still there is a desire for data on the mode of action or preclinical safety data generated in animals. This is even more the case when natural product are not based on tradition, but newly developed from scratch. In both cases, the transfer of animal data to the clinical situation can be a challenge, given e.g. physiological and dosing differences and different regulatory frameworks. In this issue of the GA eSeminars on December 1, this question is addressed by three renowned lecturers from different fields:

  • Dr. Orlando Petrini, Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) Zurich, Switzerland
  • Dr. Cynthia Rider, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIH), USA
  • Dr. Jacqueline Wiesner, Bundesinstitut für Arzneimittel und Medizinprodukte (BfArM), Germany  

With the GA eSeminar series on the regulation of natural products as a global challenge, GA, the Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research, is addressing the multitude of regulatory categories and different approaches in the field globally. These comprise e.g. (traditional) herbal medicinal products, herbal food supplements (so called botanicals), and substance-based medical devices, with leading experts from industry, authorities and academia worldwide presenting lectures. The aim is to help in differentiating the different market niches for herbal products in the countries of this world and to reveal pros and cons of the categories. Starting in autumn 2021, the parts A – C of this eSeminar series gave an overview of the regulation of mainly supply and quality of the products from different regulatory pathways in different geographies worldwide. Part D, which is starting with this issue, is widening the scope towards more basic questions.
