The Drug Database

Development of ICT based Database of ESI-MS/MS of Natural Products for Integrated Identification of Drug-Like Agents


International Center for Chemical and Biological Sciences (ICCBS) is developing a database to help researchers and herbal companies, working on mass spectrometry, particularly on ESI-MS/MS so they can identify drug like agents from Natural Products in a high-throughput manner.

A comprehensive database for the identification of natural products using ESI-MS/MS is non-existent due to unavailability of purified natural products. Dr. Syed Ghulam Musharraf has taken this upon himself to develop such a spectra library of over 5,000 compounds (available at ICCBS, Molecular Bank) included within software that is equipped with a search engine.
This database, which will be the first of its kind in the world, has already generated interest across the globe amidst health diagnostic companies which are eager to subscribe to it. Ingredient verification of herbal medicines and natural cosmetics should become far easier, quicker and dependable with such an online database, which will also boost research.
