India, about 20 % of the drugs available are from plant derived and are particularly useful to treat chronic diseases of liver, kidney and skin. People prefer Ayurvedic or herbal medicines, as they have practically no adverse effects. We found that, medicinal plants represent precious resources from which bioactive compounds can be isolated and developed into valuable therapeutic agents, with the advent of modern drug discovery technologies such as combinatorial chemistry and Drug screening platforms.
