Indian Pharmacopoeia 2007, 3 Vols. with One Supplement (Addendum 2008)

This new edition of the Indian Pharmacopoeia entitled Indian Pharmacopoeia 2007 has been prepared by the Indian Pharmacopoeia Commission (IPC) in accordance with a plan and completed through the untiring efforts of its members and its Secretariat over a period of about two years. This is the fifth edition of the Indian Pharmacopoeia after independence. It supersedes the 1996 edition but any monograph of the earlier edition that does not figure in this edition continues to be official as stipulated in the second schedule of the drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940. The Indian Pharmacopoeia 2007 is presented in three volumes. Volume I contains the general notices, preface, the structure of the IPC, acknowledgements, introduction, and the general chapters. Volume 2 deals with the general monographs on drug substances, dosage forms and pharmaceutical aids (A to M). Volume 3 Contains Monographs on drug substances, dosage forms and pharmaceutical aids (N to Z) followed by monographs on vaccines and immunosera for human use, herbs and herbal products, blood and blood related products, biotechnology products and veterinary products. The scope of the pharmacopoeia has been extended to include products of biotechnology, indigenous herbs and herbal products, viral vaccines and additional antiretroviral drugs and formulations, inclusive of commonly used fixed-dose combinations. Standards for veterinary drugs and products that were published as a supplement to the previous edition of the Indian pharmacopoeia now form an integral part of this compendium. In an effort to make the pharmacopoeia more user-friendly, a drastic change has been made in the design of the texts of the monographs and of the test methods. Cross-referencing has been a avoided to make each monograph complete in itself thus making it convenient to the analyst performing the tests and to the ones checking the results of analyses. The multiplicity of fonts in the texts that was feature of earlier editions has been done away with making it easier to read the contents and ensuring uniformity of presentation of the subject matter. To assure the health care professionals patients and consumers of the standards of drug in India the Secretary, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare. Shri Naresh Dayal who is also the Chairman of Indian Pharmacopoeia Commission released the Addendum 2008 to the Indian Pharmacopoeia (IP) 2007. The Addendum contains amendments to IP 2007 and adds 73 new monographs on different therapeutic groups representing synthetic, herbals and biological drugs. While the amendments to the IP 2007 will come into force with immediate effect, the new monographs will become effective from 1st July 2009 (ISBN : 8190343653)
