Ph Eur unit


Ph Eur unit
   a unit used in the European Union to measure the potency of a vitamin or drug, that is, its expected biological effects. For each substance to which this unit applies, the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines has determined the biological effect associated with a dose of 1 Ph Eur unit. Other quantities of the substance can then be expressed in terms of this standard unit. In many cases, the Ph Eur unit is equal to the international unit (IU).
