The screening of Maltese medicinal and aromatic plants for pharmacological activity

MCST RTDI Programme

Studies carried out in recent years have shown some Maltese medicinal and aromatic plants (MAPs) to be active against various terminal, chronic or acute illnesses. 92% of these Maltese MAPs have never been scientifically investigated, and this project therefore entailed the pharmacological investigation of the potential of these MAPs with the objective of selecting the most valuable plants and extracting the active constituent(s) responsible for their medicinal activity. The project also considered the commercial potential of the large-scale production of such medicinally active metabolites, with the ultimate aim of rendering a financial return to the local growers. 

This project was being sponsored by the Malta Council for Science and Technology, and further information can be accessed here or by contacting the Division of Rural Sciences and Food Systems.
