  7. 7. FOREWORDTheforld Ayurveda Congress CWAC) is back! For most people. But for us atviinana Bharati(VIBHA),$[AC is always awork in progress. It had a great beginning at Kochi n 2002 and ismoving on thereafter from place to place carrying the message of Ayurveda, It is forever gath--ering momentum with new sets of ideas, people (both young and old), and innovations. 7hilethere is no change in the overall mission for whichWAC was instituted, the Congress has alwaysset new goals and benchmarks challenging not only the capabilities of colleagues atVIBHA butalso those of the Ayurveda fraternity. Each time and every time. A few years ago, some of my colleagues had suggested that we organize$fAC a| a particularplace each time, thereby creating a distinct identity for itself among the people. Though there issome merit in their argument, what overrides this argument is the potential of$7AC to generateawareness on Ayurveda among different sets of people in different states of the counuy. Trueto this line of thought, we have been able to create new friends of Ayurveda and new stakehold-ers. Today, more people, including the general public, are in the fold saying, more often thannor,yesto Ayurveda with an open mind.To that extentrVIBHA is happy to $hare that$fAC ismeeting its objectives. The 4th edition was special in one respect: the genesis of the $7orld Ayurveda Foundation (WAF). The idea is to bring all our current and planned future activities related to Ayurveda under one umbrella. I thank all those who made it happen. JflAF is also in the process of get- ting the wherewithal to give accreditation and provide authenticity to Ayurveda institutions and educational courses nrn overseas. Among the various programmes run byVIBHA,r$(/AC holds a special place in our calendar. The other prominent ones are GIST (a programme for Global Indian Scientists and Techno- crats) and BharatiyaVigyan Sammelan (BVS).While the first edition of GIST focused on the all-important issue of $7ater, the BVS 2012 brought together prominent scientists and techno- crats from within the country to find local solutions to the various issues the country faces. We have a similar movement in the fields of ehergy and environment too. As for the 5th edition ofWAC,I am extremely grateful to Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the Honble Chief Minister of the Government of Madhya Pradesh. The state governments sup- porr was invaluable in every sense of the term. My special thanks to Department of AYUSH, Ministry of Health and FamilyWelfare, Government of India, for the support it rendered to(/AC over the years. Most importantly, myPranamto all delegates and Ayr.rrveda experts from all over the world.lyye are humbled by the fact that you have always considered this Congress as the importantplatform to share your knowledge and wisdom. I strongly believe that sincere efforts will nevergo waste. In that context, I do hbpe that the output/outcome of this Congress, which will be atangible manifestation of your collective knowledge and wisdom, will find its deserving place inthe health-care policies of not only the Government of Madhya Pradesh, but also of the Depart-ment of AYUSH, Government of India. My love to the team behindr$(/AC. Best wishes A Jayakumar Secretary-General, Vijnana Bharati
  8. 8. FROM THE DESK OF SECRETARY-GENERAL,5THlitAc... :It is not about abstracts that I wouldlike to write here. It is about the people and the societythat they concern with. From 2002 to 2012,1have seen and felt the pulse of7orld AyurvedaCongress CU7AC), its growth as the largest platform forAyurveda, and perhaps one of the largestin the area of CAM, internationally. For me, WAC represents the changing world of Ayurvedaand the people who drive that change.The most perceivable change during this decade has beenthe openness with which the Ayurvedacommunity has accepted the demand for evidence andturned around its course to enable itself to the generation of clinical evidence. Today "drug dis-covery" does not mean turning up the samhitas and "discovering" a previously not read formu-lation, but building up a case with the support of combinatorial chemistry, metabolomics andsystems biology to logically defend a new combination of medicinal plants for its target (oftenmultiple) specific clinical benefit(s). "$(rhole system research" has become the focus now and"Translational research" no longer means research in translating Sanskrit texts to Hindi andEnglish. NlH-funded research is no longer unheard of or a distant hope. Tertiary care hospitalsare opening up for integrating Ayurveda. There are more youngsters (of age 20-30 years) seek-ing Ayurveda from among a multitude of options available at multilsuper specialty hospitalsthan any other age group. Suddenly for the first time since I was introduced to Ayurveda, as astudent in 1989, it seems there is light at the end of the tunnel.The society is putting its faithback in Ayurveda and future generation seems to choose it over other options. It is also about people. In 2002,I would not have found another Dr Ram Manohar. He rep-resents a new genre of people who lead Ayurveda with truth, science and defined systems as itscore value. So do the nearly 90 reviewers from all over the world who had helped analyse andselect the oral, poster, and e-publication abstracts. Youngsters like Dr Vivek Shankar deservespecial mention in their dedication to the science and the responsibility at hand. The greatestchange in people I saw is in the industry. Mr Ranjit Puranik has been exceptional in this regard.He would spend months of his invaluable time, planning and executing, so as to enable hiscompetitors to compete with him, with dignity and meaning.And there had never been a timewhen the research community in Ayurveda had so opened up and reacted swiftly to a newlyintroduced submission procedure for a scientific seminar. The thousands of abstracts submit-ted online, within the compactness of the defined criteria, themselves speak of a time, for whichchange is "inevitability". It is also worthwhile to note that this set of abstracts shall be carried in special issues ofPubmed indexed journals of Ayurveda, which itself will be a "first-time" in the sector. I am surethat you will find these abstracts extremely useful and I hope you would be able to feel the un- dercurrent of change which they represent.

  9. 9. PREFACETheWorld Ayurveda Congress had been in existence for over a decade now and had organize{four mega events, the lst at Kochi, 2nd in Pune, 3rd in Jaipur, 4th in Bengaluru and the present5th Conference ar Bhopal. I had the opportunity to participate in all these mega events and amproud of the opportunity to actively participate in the 3rd WAC held in my National InstituteofAyurveda. Our country has made tremendous progress in health indicators over the past many decades.In spite of the impressive progress made, a high proportion of population, especially in ruralareas, still continues to be deprived of quality health care on equitable basis at affordable costs. Ifeel here Ayurveda can play a vital role to take care ofthe day-to-day health care needs of a vastrural population. 7e all know and everyone will appreciate thatAyurveda has a proven track record ofsuccessthrough ages and it is the bounden duty of all of us to bring this science into a global focus, sothat benefits of this rich science is available to the mankind all over the world. As per the lforldHealth Organizations Report, even today more than 80% of the worlds population depends onAyurveda and other natural systems of medicines to cure their diseases as they cannot afford tobuy the expensive medicines of the advanced world. Today, even the developed countries looktowards Alrrrveda and other Indian Systems of Medicines as the last hopes for curing many ofthe diseases, when allopathy fails. Cure of infectious disease like AIDS, chikungunia, dengue is really the challenge to both allopathy and Ayurveda. ilfho knows one day Ayurveda and other Indian Systems of Medicines may come out with wonder drugs to cure these deadly diseases? The present 5th 7orld Ayurveda Congress will throw light on various aspects such as col- laboration with foreign countries in the field of education, training, clinical research, publica- tions, manufacturing etc. so that the Ayurvedic System of Medicine will be able to reach each every corner of the globe for welfare of mankind. The aims and objectives of this Congress will be achieved with all efforts. As the Congress is held every two years the organizers have ample time and opportunity to sit together to analyze and churn various outcomes for implementation of the so arrived opinions and decisions for further improvement and enriching of Ayurvedic System of Medicine for acceptance globally. If this is done, I hope, we can achieve a lot for the welfare of mankind. One of the main objectives of the Congress is to discuss and elaborate the possibilities of further globalization of Ayurveda by entering into collaboration, cooperation, bilateral agreements, etc. for teaching, training, research and treatment aspects of Ayurveda and also ro initiate proper legislation and validation of Ayurveda in the countries which are inter- ested to adopt Ayrrveda as a system of medicine. Efforts will also be made to find out ways and means to increase export potential of Ayurvedic medicines to foreign countries. The outcome of the deliberations and discussions of the Congress will go a long way in show- ing the right path to the global Ayurvedic community in the need for propagation, protection and adopting Ayurveda for a long and sound health at a time when many foreign countries and narionals are rurning rowards this ancient divine system of medicine for leading a purposeful and sound healthy life free from diseases. I wish all success for this mega international event. Prof. Aiay Kurnar Shartna Director, National Institute of Ayurveda, Jaipur Chairman, Scientific Cornmittee, 5th $fAC
  10. 10. A NOTE FROM THESCIENTIFIC REVIEW COMMITTEEA blinded peer reaiewed process to scrutinise and select abstracts...The 5th World Ayurveda Congress has taken a major step forward in introducing an onlindmodule based peer review system for submission, review, revision, selection, editing, schedulingand creating the abstract book in a professional manner.This has been done with a view to makethe lil/orld Ayurveda Congress a platform and stepping stone for showcasing the best researchhappening in the field of Ayurveda. The abstract submission module has been designed to enable researchers to submit abstractsthat are structured and focused, but brief at the same time. Good abstract writing is so impor-tant in scientific communication because it is the abstracts that are often seriously read to takeeditorial decisions and even accessed by researchers in international databases. We wanted to enforce a rigorous peer review system to enable fair evaluation of the sub-mitted abstracts. All abstracts were reviewed in a blinded manner without revealing names ofauthors and their institutional affiliations. There were two rounds of blinded internal review bythe editorial team and many abstracts were sent back to the authors for revision. In the nextstep, the abstracts were sent to about 150 experts all over the world. Amongst them, more than80 responded and scored the abstracts based on various parameters like originaliry, scientificimportance, rigour of methodology, appropriate analysis and proper conclusions. In the lastphase, the senior members of the scientific committee picked up the abstracts for oral and posterpresentations based on the rating given by the external reviewers. Ve could select only a few abstracts for oral presentations compared to the posters and e-publication. It is not true that the best papers were selected for oral presentation. We looked atat the nature of the study and which format would be most suited for its presentation.Therefore,some of the papers selected for oral presentation represent abstract ideas because they cannot beeffectively presented as posters.Whereas some concrete studies are more graphically presented as posters, they were assigned for the poster sessions. Moreoverr the 7orld Ayurveda Congresshas always given importance to posters compared to other conferences. Posters are allowed tobe displayed for almost the entire duration of the conference in a very visible way. There has not been much of editorial intervention due to paucity of time. However, we be-lieve that the richness of the content presented in these abstracts far outweighs the glitches thatyou may notice on the language front. A very important step taken by the congress is to publish the abstracts in PubMed indexedresearch journals on Ayurveda. Post the congress, three journals in the field of Ayurveda willpublish parts of the selected abstracts as a supplement.This will make these abstracts visible forresearchers around the world. The abstracts of the Congress will also be indexed in DHARA online database - www.dharaonline.org. Authors are also invited to submit their papers for publication in the official journals of the congress which are PubMed indexed and this process would be facilitated by the scientific com- mittee.

IOOOi-rEfficacy of the toasted garlic with jaggery in the management ofkastartavaTANRGunaratna :Purlrose: A randomised placebo controlled study was undertaken to examine the effect ofa traditional remedy consisting of two plant ingredients (Garlic - Allium sathtum and Jaggery- Caryota urens) for the management of Kastartava (dysmenorrhoea).Mettrod: Sixty female volunteers were selected from GampahaTickramarachchi Ayurveda In-sritute, IJniversity of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka. Test group (30) was treated with remedy (25 g oftoasted garlic with 5 g of jaggery) and Placebo group (30) was treated with 30 millilitres ofdistilled water at the onset of menstruation pain for a period of three months Pain and othersymptoms were rated using five point scalesResult: P-value according to the analysis of the Test Group in the comparison of before andafter treatment and first, second and third month were less than 0.05. Significant relief in painwas observed in the study group at the end of three months.Conclusion: Garlic exhibitsVikashi guna (antispasmodic) andVedhana shaman (analgesic) ac-tivity. Its antispasmodic activity relieves spasms of the voluntary and involuntary by strengthen-ing nerves. Garlic and jaggery decrease aggravated Apana vata and Kapha in the Artava vahasrothas and increase the Pitta. This remedy is, therefore, helpful in regulating menstrual flowand relieving pain. Statistical analysis suggests (p<0.05) that toasted garlic with jaggery is aneffective remedy for I(astartava.lOOlr-rProtective effect of yashtimadhu (Glycyrrhiza glabra) against side ef-fects of radiation/chemotherapy in head and neck malignanciesDebabrata Das, H M Chandola, SK Agarwal1 ProJessor and HOD, Dept of Radiotherapy, M P Shah Medical College ts G G Hospiial, JamnagarPurpose: This study aims to evaluate the scope for minimising the radiation induced mucositis,skin reaction, xerostomia, change in voice etc with an Ayurvedic Ghrita preparation i.e.Yashti-madhu Ghrita. Health-related quality of life measures have been used as an outcome measure.Method: Inclusion Criteria- Patients between 30 and 60 years with histopathologically provenhead and neck malignancies and who had not irritially been treated by Radiotherapy subject toHb% -->9% and Serum Protein within normal limits. Exclusion uiteria - Those on palliativecourse of treatment, who have taken Radiotherapy earlier, and below 30 years and above 60years with history of Hypertension, Cardiac Ailments, Diabetes and those allergic to Platinswere excluded from the study.Yashtimadhu root was subjected to pharmacognostical study andthe raw drug and its powder was used for microscopic assessment and authentication.

The hematological levels were maintained within normal lim- its enabling timely administration of chemorherapy. The side effects were more visible in pitta- dominated prakriti since radiation is similar tcr Agni and chemotherapy to Tikshna aushadhi. There were no side effects of the trial drug. Xerostomia symptoms were persistent and the trial drug had no effect on this particular side effect. I 0028 Management of progressive glaucomatous optic neuropathy- a neo ayurvedic approach Veeranagouda S AdoorPurpose: Ganglion cells with nerve fibre layer contribute a substantial fraction to the retinalthickness (RT), which is usually decreased in Glaucoma. This is measured by optical Coher-ence Topography (OCT), which enables objective noninvasive evaluarion of the posterior poleand could become helpful in diagnosis of glaucoma before the onset of functional damage. Evenvisual fields analysis and retinal sensitivity threshold measurement also enable the assessmenrof progression of glaucomatous optic neuropathy. In this study, we wanted to compare the rateof progression/halting of progression of optic neuropathy between two treaffnent modalities byassessing all these parameters.Method: Progression of glaucomatous optic neuropathy was assessed between 20 eyes treatedwith modern antiglaucoma drops alone (Group-A) and 20 eyes treated rvith both modern an-tiglaucoma drops and Ayurvedic management (Classical line of management with srress onchakshusya-rasayana) (Group-B) for 90 days. In both grqups, visual acuity, Retinal Nerve FibreI-ayer (RNFL), Visual fields, Applanation Tonometry, DO/IDO were tested periodically anddatas collected. Follow up 2 months. Result: After completion of 3 months of trearment in Group-A, 7 eyes RNFL was unaltered,with significant decrease in RNFL in 13 eyes, visual field defect found to be worsened in g eyes,unchanged in l2 eyes. Retinal sensitivity was found to be decreased in l5 eyes. After completionof 3 months treatment of Group-B, the RNFL thickness was unchanged in 13 eyes and slightlyimproved in 2 eyes, worsened in 5 eyes, with no significant changes in visual fields of all parients,however retinal threshold sensitivity was found to be,increased in z eyes.Conclusion: A classical ayurvedic line of treatment especially of chakshusya-rasayana in natureif given as adjuvant with modern antiglaucoma management, rhe rate of progression of glauco-4 ABSTRACTS . 5thWorldAyurvedaCongressandArogya Expo2012

Investigations like USG were done to assess prostate size and post voidurine residue in bladder. Also routine investigations like CBC, urine tests were done.Method: Patient should lie on bed. After cleaning penile area, sterile rubber catheter is passedthrough penis till it reaches urinary bladder. Bladder is evacuated completely by giving pressureover basti area. Then 20 ml SAHACHAR taila is administered in the bladder. Patient should lieon bed for half an hour. Pulse and blood pressure are recorded and nadisweda is given over Bastiarea to avoid further pain. Medications used are Gokshuradi Guggul and Chandraprabha vatiand Chandanasav. Medications was given for one month and after one month Rasayan churnawas administered for two months.Result: The effects of this treatment was observed in 18 patients. Patients reported passingof oil with no pain while passing urine after two days After a week, burning and str:iin duringurination was relieved.Within two weeks the patients were symptom free. Patients also reportedimproved sexual activity after the procedure.Conclusion: Uttarbasti is helpful in management of cases of benign enlargement of prostateThis procedure was tried on patients in rural as well as in urban areas and patients are beingfollowed up on a long-term basis.I OO,l2A comparative clinicalevaluation of thyromax powder against thy-roxine sodium in the management of hypothyroidismNitin Ujjaliya, Remedevi R, S V Krishnankutty1V P SV4yurveda College,2 Maulana Muhispecility HospitalPurpose:The thyroid gland regulates metabolism of the body by virtue of its hormones. Insuffl-cient levels of thyroid hormone cause signs and symptoms such as slower metabolic rate, weightgain, sleepiness, pufri face, dry and cool skin, as well as others. This condition collectively canbe called as Hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is most common in women than men. Accordingto a study, it affects 3.9To people with 9.4% subclinical condition.The sole available treatmentfor this in conventional science is HRT which is not always free from side effects and has to betaken lifelong. This study was aimed to search an option for Hypothyroidism in terms of herbs.Method: Traditionally practised drugs Gu6. uca Sawam and Amalaka car6am was taken ina combination named Thyromax powderrM which was standardized before commencing withclinical trial. For the standardization of study drug; SOP guidelines were followed and HPTLCprofile of individual content andThyromax powder was prepared. A controlled clinical trial wasplanned with 20 newly diagnosed participants, who were not exposed to any medicament, withThyroxine sodium in conuol group for the duration of 3 month. Assessment was done on thebasis of six subjective parameters and thyroid function test. Organized by World Ayurveda Foundation and Government of Madhya Pradesh ABSTRACTS 5
  16. 16. Oral PresentationResult: On statistical analysis, study drug showed a high positive correlation on subjective pa-rameters while control group showed significant result on T3 and T4 levels. Both the groupswere found statistically insignificant on TSH level.Conclusion: HPTLC profile showed four chemical constituents in Gu6. uca Sawam and 11peaks in Amalaka car6lam extracts. There was no negative impression in HPTLC profile ofThyromax powder due to combination. Thyromax powder is found to be more effective in re-ducing the subjective parameters.

Oral Presentationr0062Fluorescence and sound producing nature of pathogens: anayurvedic perspectiveAbhilash MullasserilPurpose: Recently modern scientist are keenly researching on the illuminations produced bythe microbes. According to microbiologists the colonies of bacteria especially pathogenic onescan fluoresce and make characteristic smells. It is the modern discovery that the bacteria canmake sounds and they communicate with each other.The modern scientists use the word Quo-rum Sensing for the method of communication. The invention of the device known as nanoear, which uses the gold nano particles can enable the human to hear the voice of bacteria asthe German inventers published n 2olz.The aim of this paper to correlate both Ayurveda andmodern findings.Method: Classical Ayurvedic texts along with the commentaries were carefully studied to com-pile information on microbes and their flourescence and sound producing natureResult: It was observed that there is evidence in the ancient texts to suppose that the an-cientAyurvedic experts had knowledge about the flourescence and sound producing nature ofpatho-gens.Conclusion: The chapter,of Krminidana of Madhavanidana provides evidence that the an-cient Ayurvedic physicians had knowledge of microbiology and pathogens that draw parallelswith contemporary scientific findings.l0065Consumer approach of health and AyurvedaSagra Szaba,Viktaria Szente, Zoltain Szaka;lyPurpose: The aim of this study was to explore the differences of health interpretation be-tweenpeople with Ayurvedic approach and non Ayurvedic but health conscious approach. rWrhile Ay-urveda has a holistic approach to health, the European medicine focuses on the physical aspects(bio-medicinal model). Although theoretically a complex interpretition of health (bio-psycho-social model) is the most accepted in Hungary, we examined whether it prevails on a practicallevel.Method:l$[e carried out a representative survey (N=1000) to examine the health-related knowl-edge and behaviour of the Hungarian population. To achieve deeper understanding of the sub-iect, we carried out two focus group discussions.We selected health conscious people in the firstgroup and ayurvedic oriented people in the second group to compare their attitudes towardshealth.Result: The results showed that the majority of the Hungarian population (83.2%) has recog-nised that health is more than the bio-medicinal approach, it builds up of physical, psycho-logical, mental and social factors but in most cases we found huge gaps between recognitionand action. During discussions the Ayurvedic oriented group construed an interpretation thatcontained all the five health dimensions of WHO and mentioned spirituality as an additionaldimension, while the health conscious group mainly emphasized physical health. Jfe also askedthe participants about their own health behaviour and found the same pattern. Organized byWorld Ayurveda Foundation and Government of Madhya Pradesh ABSTRACTS 7
  18. 18. Oral PresentationConclusion: It can be stated that the Hungarian population theoretically admits an integra-tive model of health but it does not appear in their health behaviour. It seems that Ayurvedicorientation contributes to bringing knowledge to practice. Ayurvedic oriented people have morecomplex interpretation of health and are willing to do more for their health, so they are a goodtarget group of prevention campaigns and health care services, It also suggests that the spread ofAyurvedic approach could contribute to better health behaviour in Hungary.I OOTzlAclinicalstudy on shweta pradar (leucorrhoea) and its managementwith nimbadiyogaPoonam Choudhary, Grishma Solanki, Luxmipriya DeiPurpose: Intro:ductionLeucorrhoea, the abnormal vaginal discharge is quite frequently met inday to day gynecological practice.

At present, 6,00,000 women are affected byrhis condition and among them, 2,00,000 require immediate treatment. At this juncture alleri*ting measures of treatment were said to be inadequate in recreating the lost stability andintegrity of the pelvic support. Hence, a measure where the duration of hospital stay is reduced,is non-invasive, stress free was the need of the hour. One such therapy explained in classics issnehana, (olearion) swedana (sudation) and pichudharana (application of cloth dipped in oil)wtich were adopred in the study. For this a well-known drug, Phalaghritha, was selected, in thebrm of pichudharana.Dlethod: The present study was carried out on 20 patients who were divided into two groups.The above said line of treatment was followed in 10 patients with Phalaghrita (group 1) andanorher 10 patients with Goghritha (group 2). Follow up was done 15 days after the treatmentand I month duration.Result: The overall iesults showed marked improvement in 2OYo, moderate improvement inTOYo and improvement in 10 % of patients in group 1.Conclusion: Phalaghrita showed significant results in symptoms like feeling of mass per vagina,back pain, cystocele and cough reflex. It relaxed perineum and tone of muscles. Hence, the pres-ence of pichu in the vaginal canal not only plovides mechanical support but better absorption ofthe mediated oil, which in turn helps to provide better strength to the prolapsed tissues.loo$7The role of haritaki avaleha in the management of tamakshvas (bron-chialasthama)Omprakash DadhichPurpose: Among the disorders affecting the Pranavahasrotas (Respiratory system) Tamakaswasa is an important disease due to its higher and widespread incidence, chronicity and pro-gression to grave condition in acute phase. The disease, Tamaka Swasa is characterized by par-oxysmal acacks of Shvaskashtata (breathlessness), Kasa (cough), Pinas (coryza). The aim ofpresent study was to access the efficacy of the Haritakyadyavaleha in Thmaka swasa (BronchialAsthma).Method: Total 50 patients ofThmaka Shvasa having symptoms like shvaskashtata, shvas, pinas,and parshvashoola were registered for the present study. Special case record form was prepared.Scoring and gradation was done to assess symptoms mentioned in Ayurvedic texts before andafter treatmenr. They were randomly divided into two groups. Group A: -In this group 25 pa-tients of Thmaka Shvasa were given Haritaki Avaleha (5 g twice a day) with anupana of ushnaiala for 45 days. Group B: 25 selected patients ofTamaka Shvasa were given placebo for 45 days.For the assessment of the results, guidelines given by classical text ofAyurveda were consideredParameters used were AEC (Absolute Eosinophil Count), Pulmonary Function Tests such asFVC, PEF& and FEVI. Students paired and unpaired t test was applied for analysis of col-lected data. Study was carried out at National Institute of Aprurveda, Jaipur.Result: In group A significant results were found in Shvasakashtata (58%) and decrease in thefrequency of Shvasa (54%). Significant results were found in reduction of duration of Shvasa(48%) and Pinasa (81%).Conclusion:Vatakapha pradhana Samprapti may be correlated with pathophysiology of asthmalike inflammation and endo bronchial obstruction.

Babieswhose birth weight is below tenth percentile of the average for the gestational age is known asintra uterine growth restriction. In developing countries the overall incidence is about 2-8%.The incidence among the term babies is about 5oh and that of the post term babies is about15%. These babies were at significantly greater risk for severe pre-eclampsia, fetal distress, op-erative intervention and lower APGAR score. It was the need of the hour to find low cost, easilyavailable and effective remedy. Alrrrveda has mentioned the utility of Garbhini paricharya andGarbha poshana for the management of upavistaka using santarpana and bhrumhana for growthand development of the fetus. For this a clinical trial was conducted to evaluate the efficacy ofGarbha-poshana vati consisting of Shatavari, Ashwagandha and Bala which were well known forRasayana, Bhrumhana and Balya were selecred in the management of IUGR.Method: 30 patients with signs and symptoms of IUGR from OPD and IPD of AryangalaVaidyak Mahavidyalaya, Satara - between the age group of l9-30 years were selected. Garbha-Poshana vati was administered twice daily after diagnosing IUGR in second tri-mester till deliv-ery and the results were studied on birth weight of new born.Result: In second trimester the effect of the drug was proven statisticaliy significant. The birthweigft of new born up to 2450 gwas l7%o, above 2450 gwere 40o% and above 3250 g 43%.Conclusion: Garbha Poshand Vati was found to be effective in conditions like UpavistakaGarbha correlated to Intra lJterine Growth Restriction (IUGR) as reflected in rhe birth weightof the children.IOIOORole of sukumaragritha in prasavaShweta DindurPurpose: Labour is accompanied by intense and prolonged pain. Child birth is a very dy-namic process and the woman needs to be well prepared for it.

Oral Presentation I OI OrT clinical evaluation of a herbal compound (GH-99) in the patients of acute hepatitis-B Girendra Singh Tomar Purpose: Hepatitis B is a leading killer among all infectious agents and is responsible for he- pa,tocellular catcinoma (approx. 80%) and cirrhosis of liver (approx.68%).There is no cure for this dreaded disease in western medicine so far. Supportive measures are usually practiced for its management. Ayurveda, the holistic science of healing has got a treasure of valuable herbs for the treatment of all liver related disorders. Keeping this background in the mind present study has been plarined to evaluate the efficacy of the herbal com-pound GH-89 in acute cases of hepatitis B. Method: Present study is a clinical evaluation of a herbal compound (GH-89) in the patients of acute hepatitis B.The test drug contains Kalmegh, Kutki, Bhumyamalaki, Guduchi, punarnava, Bhringraj, Pittapapda, and Daruharidra. 180 patients, both males and females of varying age groups of acute hepatitis B were selected for this clinical trial. The patients were diagnosed on clinical, biochemical as well as serological parameters. The assessment of results was done us-ing both subjective and objective criteria. Subjective criteria consisrs of symptoms like anorexia,icterus, indigestion, weight loss, fatigue, itching, fever and hepatomegaly. All the *y*p,o-, *.r.graded as 0 = absent, I = mild,2 = moderate,3 = severe. Similarly objective criteria used wereliver function test (Serum bilirubin, AUI, AST, alkaline phosphatase, serum protein, A:G ratio)and viral marker HBsAg.Result: All the patients were having altered liver function test values and HBsAg was positive inall the cases before treatment. After average duration of three months, 75% (I32) cases clearedthe antigen. Apart from this there was highly significant reduction in serum Bilirubin, AST, ALTand Alkaline phosphatise levels. Moreover 90% patients restored normalcy on sympromatic cri-teria too. No case developed complication of this series.Conclusion: This study shows that the herbal compound (GH-89) is very effective in the man-agement of patients suffering from Infective hepatitis B.Conclusion: It shows this herbal compound (GH-89) is very effective in the patients of Jaun-dice of Infective hepatitis B.r0roGlmportance of drug standardisation in accordance with example ofsarpaga nd ha (Rou wolfi a serpe nti n elDr Sajeev Poovathady PadmanabhananPurpose: Authentication, availability and conservarion status in accordance with IUCN is thestrategic line of thought about medicinal plants used in Ayurveda in this era.

It is still being practiced extensively espe-cially in ru-ral and tribal areas. Dhatura is an important deliriant poison grouped under sthavara upavishaand phalavisha. It affecrs the Central Nervous system. Dhatura is important ingredient of largenumber of medicinal formulations. It works as a best medicine when it is used in correct man-ner or otherwise it may cause adverse effects and may also be fatal. In India dhatura is stupef,-ing poison prior to robbery kidnapping and rape. Dhatura poisoning is very common in IndiaDhatura is also known as road poison. teatment of poisoning includes removal of unabsorbedpoison, use of antidotes, elimination of ab-sorbed poison, treatment of general symptoms andmaintenance of general condition of patient. Antidotes play the major role in management ofpoisons. In the Ayurvedic text,, Basavarajeeyam, Chincha Rasa (Tamarind) has been describedio be possessing antidote action to counter toxicity of Dhatura. This study attempts to establishthe activity and mechanism of action of chincha rasa against toxic effects of Dhatura by means of chemical analysis.Method: 1) Collection of drugs, 2) Authentication of three drugs in Govt. authorised institute, 3) i) Preparation of Chincha rasa (According to Charaka), ii) Preparation of Chincha pakwa phal (According to Sharangdhar), 4) Physical and Chemical study of Dhatur seed, i) Prepa- ration of Dhatur Churna (according to Sharangdhar) and Analytical Study of three drugs, 5) Methods of determination of an antidote. Result: Laboratory experiments were carried out to obtain values of specific parameters for Dhatur seeds, chincha patra ras (tamarind leaf juice) and chincha pakwa phal (ripe tamarind fruit). Conclusion: On the basis of observations and results found in chemical study and reported literature, the study came with the following conclusions. 1)The chincha patra rasa and Chincha pakwa phal rasa both contain Hordenine which is the alkaloid. It has the antibacterial and anti- biotic properties. Hordenine specially stimulates the central nervous system due to which it can control the symproms like unquenchable thirst, muttering, Delirium (indistinct and inaudible words unsteady gait.) 2) Because of tannins, Chinchapatra ras and Chincha pakwaphal ras have Organized by World Ayurveda Foundation and Government of Madhya Pradesh . ABSTRACTS 13
  24. 24. Oral Presentationastringent property, which counteract the toxic symptoms of Dhatur like dermatitis, rash andexfoliation of the skin. 3) Because of glycosides and tannins, chincha patra rasa and chinchapakwaphal have diuretic properfy rvhich counteract the toxic symptoms of dhatura like urinaryretention and inability to pass urine. 4) The tartaric acid present in chincha patra ras and chin-cha pakwaphal ras causes gastric irritation and thus induces vomiting. The effects of dhaturapoisoning can be reduced with the immediate vomiting. 5) Because of tannins chincha patra rasand Chincha pakwa phal have astringent property. Thus it controls the rise in temperature inDhatura poisoning. 6) Chincha patra ras and Chincha pakwa phal ras have flavonoids (Vit. P.and Citrin) which strengthens the blood vessels.Thus it is useful in lowering blood pressure andalso has anti-inflammatory properry. Therefore it can prevent arrhythmia produced in Dhaturapoisoning and maintains the blood pressure and prevents heart atrack. 7) The Chincha patra rasand Chincha pakwa phal ras have vit. C which lead the blood circulation rowards the heartwhich prevent the cardiac arrest produced in the Dhatura poisoning. Because the death in theDhatura poisoning is resulted from heart failure. 8) Chincha patra ras aqueous extract Io/o andI 0% has the pH of 5.9 I and 5 .45 and the pH of chincha pakwa phal ras aqueous extracr of 1%oand 10% has pH of 4.72 and 4.50. Both are acidic but the pH of Dhatura in aqueous exrrac-t of1% is 8.19 and 8.00. That is why they neutralize each other and reduce the toxic effect of dha-tura. Similarly, the action of chincha rasa can be explained through the concepts of Ayurveda.Itrll2,,llmpact of climate change on medicinal plants: a reviewHarish B SPurpose: Medicinal plants are highly valuable to human livelihood and the medicinal plantwealth of India is well recognized. Studies on possible effects of climate change on medicinalplants are particularly significani due to their value within traditional systems of medicine andas economically useful plants. There is evidence that climate change is causing noticeable ef-fects on life cycles and distribution of the plant species. However, the effects of climate changeon secondary metabolites in plants is not well understood. A need for research to improve ourunderstanding of climatic effects on medicinal plants is stressed in the present article. An at-tempt is being made here to review the work so far done on this importanr issue with Indianperspective.Method: Reviews have been collected from different sources related to medicinal plants.Result:The impact of climate change with respect to medicinal plants has been discussed underthe following heads. Effect of elevated CO, on productivity and quality, Effect on threars ro me-dicinal plants species, Adaptation rn.ur.rr"l for climate change and global warming, Mitigationmeasures to reduce emission of CO,/GHGs, Future strategies for research.Conclusion: The impact of climate change on medicinal plants both cultivated and wild is verysignificant. The need of the hour is to have a focused research approach specially on the accu-mulation of secondary metabolites of health significance.The research on medicinal plants withrespect to climate change is very sporadic and insignificant in comparison with other commer-cial crops. It is the high time that, these group of plants should not be left as they are potentialsources of bio-molecules and neutraceuticals.14 ABSTRACTS . 5thWorldAyurvedaCongressandArogyaExpo20l2

Oral Presentdtionror 50Evaluation of therapeutic efficacy of ayurvedic formulations in pa-tients with alopecia areataHariharan Subramanian, Dhanvathri PremvelPurpose: Alopecia areata is one among the most prevalent human autoimmune diseases, lead-ing to disfiguring hair loss by the collapse of immune privilege in the hair follicle and subsequentautoimmune attack. Generally, hair loss in patches signifies alopecia areata. It typically presentsa gradual or sudden loss of hair in head, eyebrows, eyelashes, nasal, ear and other areas of thebody causing patches to appear. Alopecia areata or hair loss occurs in one in 1,000 people. Au-toimmune-associated alopecia areata has no age boundaries and can affect even children, menand women equally. If left untreated, or if the disease does not respond to treatment, completebaldness can resuft in the affected area. The two maior forms of Alopecia are scarring and nonscarring. Highlighting the significance, a study was carried out to evaluate the therapeutic ef-ficacy of Ayurvedic formulations in patients with alopecia areata.Method: Fifteen alopecia areata patients of either sex with varying degrees of hair loss wererandomly selected for the clinicai trial and were treated with Indralupta Bhasma, MalathyadiThilam and Guduchi tablet for a period of 3-5 months. Subsequently, most of them were ob-served bi monthly up to a 5 months periodResult: Findings revealed that 8 of the l5 patients with patchy progressive hair loss stabilisedand showed no additional hair loss. After 3-5 months of treatment hair growth in these patientswere partial or full. Of the other 7 patients with stable patchy total hair loss, four had some lim-ited growth, two patients displayed complete growth of eyebrows and eyelashes, but had poorhair growth on scalp while one patient did not show any response.Conclusion: The study vividly indicated the efficacy of Ayurvedic formulations in patients withAlopecia Areata. The trial medicines too proved to be effective minimizing the patchy hair loss. tol55 Clinical evaluation of herbomineral compound in lumbago w.s.r.to spinal canalstenosis Jai Prakash Singh, Meera Antiwal t Senior Resident, Department of Kayachikitsa, I ME B H U,Varanasi (U P) Purpose: Low back pain or lumbago is a common musculoskeletal disorder affecting 80% of people at some point in their lives.

Celasrraceae) has beenrecommended for its sedative activity by the tribal pockets of Andaman and Nicobar Islands.However, no pharmacological studies have been yet evaluated its sedative effects.The aim of thepresent study was to determine the sedative activity of different solvent extracts of the leaves ofJyotishmati.Method: All animals were divided into five different groups (n=6). Group I served as controland ueated with normal saline (5 mVkg, i.p.).Test groups II,III and fV were treated with petether, ethyl acetate and methanol extracts respectively. Group V treated with standard drugrhlorpromazine hydrochloride (l mg/kg, i.p.). Pentobarbitone (40 mg/kg, i.p.) was administeredafter 30 min in Groups (I, II, nI and IV) and after 15 min in Standard groupV. Onset of sleepand duration of sleep were measured for all the groups. Onset of action was recorded by notingthe time of loss of reflex for three consecutive trials and duration of sleep recorded by time dif-ference between loss of righting reflex and recovery time.Result: The control group showed quickest recovbry from sleep. All the solvent extracts showedsedative activity. The Pet ether extract (78 min) showed very long duration of sleep with com-parison to the standard drug chlorpromazine hydrochloride (81 min).Conclusion: In the present study the ether soluble extract showed most potent activiry than theother two extracts. The ether extractive seed oil is already proved for its potent sedative action.This may indicate the chemical similarity between the chemical constitu-ents present in the leafand seed oil also. The steroid, terpenoid present in the pet-ether extract may be responsible forsuch pharmacological action. Further more study is required for the isolation of the active con-stituent responsible for this activity.lor60Role of matravasti as rasayana in jarajanya vikar: a clinical studySathyanarayana Dornala, Om Prakash Sharmat Department of Panchakarma, RDM,$turvedic College & HospitalPurpose:To prove whether Matravasti shows multiple effects on different systems in old peopleand to substantiate the effects of Matravasti and Rasayana on clinical basis in ageing.
