Recent adverse events have clearly shown that all herbal products are not free from side effects and toxicity. Products that have been confirmed to have bioefficacy can then be taken up for safety studies to determine possible side effects, adverse reactions and the maximum tolerable dosages.
We at THS undertake systematic animal studies of herbal extracts and formulations by utilizing appropriate models.
Toxicological Studies at our Laboratory are performed as per OECD, ICH, FDA, MHW, TGA, AYUSH, Scheduley, etc...
Few of the types of toxicological/animal studies regularly performed are as follows.
- Acute toxicity
- Sub acute toxicity
- Sub chronic toxicity
- Chronic toxicity
