Resumen

HOAREAU, Lucy  y  DASILVA, Edgar J.. Medicinal Plants: A Re-emerging Health Aid. Electron. J. Biotechnol. [online]. 1999, vol.2, n.2, pp. 3-4. ISSN 0717-3458.

Interest in medicinal plants as a re-emerging health aid has been fuelled by the rising costs of prescription drugs in the maintenance of personal health and well being, and the bioprospecting of new plant-derived drugs. Several issues as well as a range of interests and activities in a number of countries are dealt with. Based on current research and financial investments, medicinal plants will, seemingly, continue to play an important role as a health aid.
