Cambridge, United Kingdom, November 25, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Global Regulatory Services (GRS) is pleased to announce that they are co-hosting the Botanicals Stream at the Genesis Conference (the leading Biotechnology Networking Conference) in London on Thursday 10 December 2009.
With Research & Development pipelines at an all time low and many drugs going off patent in 2010 and 2011, pharmaceutical and biotech companies are actively revisiting the source of many of today’s drugs i.e. plants. A number of phytomedicinal start-ups are appearing and information about research into plants and plant-derived extracts can often be read in industry literature. Then, of course, there are Traditional Chinese Medicines and Ayurveda Remedies which have been used for thousands of years in China and India respectively. Couple this increased interest in botanicals with improved investigative technology, there are plenty of opportunities out there for companies to embrace with regards to both traditional herbal remedies and plant-derived medicinal products.
This new stream will provide delegates with an overview of what’s happening in the botanicals sector with examples from a selection of individuals already active in the market along with key considerations. Subjects to be discussed will include the European regulations (to be presented by Global Regulatory Services), research, quality control, Intellectual Property and the experiences of an herbal medicine manufacturer.
This Botanicals Stream forms part of the 2-day Genesis 2009 Conference (genesisconference.com) and registered delegates will have full access to all conference sessions, online networking, exhibition and catering.
