a Florida corporation, was founded as a vehicle to translate ethnobotanical medicinal discovery, through evidence-based research
and developmental stages to commercialized products, validation of claims for natural products and supplements and standardization
of biological efficacy of these products.
paradigm involves the evaluation of specific botanical compounds or natural products that have been used in the context of
traditional medicine systems that represents a directed and enriched selection process for medicinal discovery. This approach
leads to a much higher likelihood of identifying biologically active, safe and effective compounds for a broad range of medicinal
applications when compared to the conventional pharmaceutical paradigms of drug discovery. Through this paradigm, identified
extracts are characterized chemically and subjected to in vitro and in vivo analysis to confirm the potential for medicinal applications.
Biomedical was established principally for R & D; Dharma Biomedical has recognized
the critical need for proper biological and clinical validation of proposed or existing natural products or supplements used
for health promoting or medicinal purposes. Consequently, Dharma Biomedical alone or through its strategic alliances provides:
· Product chemical
· In vitro/in vivo biological
· Clinical trial
· R & D support
