New Monographs Available from ABC.
In response to the current interest in and need for reliable, scientific information on herbs, additional monographs are being made available through ABC's Herbal Education Catalog. Fitoterapia, a leading international botanical research journal, has recently published monographs on ten herbs, while Verlag für Ganzheitliche Medizin in Germany has published eight on traditional Chinese herbs from 1995-1998. The American Herbal Pharmacopoeia has two new monographs (Hawthorn and Valerian) due out soon, in addition to their monograph on St. John's wort, with plans to publish new items on a regular basis. In addition there are the ESCOP Monographs, offered exclusively in the U.S. by ABC. ABC offers Popular Herbs in the U.S. Market: Therapeutic Monographs, and The Complete Commission E Monographs: Therapeutic Guide to Herbal Medicines co-published with Integrative Medicine Communications.
