Abstract

SANT' ANA, Paulo José Péret de  and  ASSAD, Ana Lúcia Delgado. Research programme on natural products of CEME. Quím. Nova [online]. 2004, vol.27, n.3, pp. 508-512. ISSN 0100-4042.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-40422004000300025.

The Brazilian effort on R&D of products from the national biodiversity dates back to the 70's. The Central de Medicamentos - CEME - was tailored to add scientific and technological competence to the production of pharmaceutical drugs derived from the Brazilian biodiversity by means of the Research Programme on Medicinal Plants - PPPM. Although previous to the Convention on Biological Diversity - CBD - and to the current debate and the ever-growing interest on phytomedicines, CEME has historical importance in the present governmental efforts on fostering the R&D on phytomedicines. This article makes a historical redemption of the PPPM, the actions and the results in the course of its existence.

Keywords : CEME; R&D; phytomedicines.
