Les interactions entre plantes et médicaments

Abstract : Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) are currently a craze in developed countries, particularly among patients on drug treatment in the long term. Among these medicines, herbal medicine has an important place. The pharmacist is in this context, an important source of information because in addition to discussing the potential benefits of these products, it must be able to assess the risk of potential interactions. To accomplish this mission, it must have access to reliable and relevant data. However, there are only some databases and websites providing access to this information. Therefore in our work, a critical analysis of available sources was performed, allowing the development of a table ranking and listing the most relevant websites providing access to good quality information that can be used in current practice. Our literature search was then led to the development of several sheets about the majority of the plants used in rheumatology, a frequent chronic disease for which many patients use herbs, but also on plants resulting in most of the interactions identified. All herb-drug interactions identified were synthesized in a summary table. This work also enabled the development of an existing thesaurus (Hopital de la Croix Rousse) which may constitute a useful tool for clinical pharmacist in the analysis and validation of medical prescriptions.
