To the Editor: I applaud the critical scientific
attention being given to the review of the therapeutic efficacy and
safety of the saw palmetto plant extract Serenoa
repens.1 However, the article did not address the lack
of quality and manufacturing standards of S repens and other
phytotherapeutics. As health care professionals, we should assume a
more proactive role in the review and selection of phytotherapeutics
for our patients.
