Usage of medicinal plants is the oldest way for treatment of various diseases. Modern medicines and drugs directly, or in some modified form, are made of plants. Plant drugs and their active compounds are used for pharmaceutical production. Grass family (Poaceae), one of the largest plant families with almost 12.000 species, is the most important plant family in economical view. First of all, wheat, maize, rice and other cereal crops feed planet. Grasslands are estimated to compose 24% of the vegetation cover of the Earth, so their ecological impact on other organisms is huge. Today, grasses are used also in pharmaceutical industry and in cosmetical industry, in products like powders and various creams. Plant drugs of grass family are recognised as medically and therapeuticaly useful, and with further research their use in medicine will be more important.
