  • 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. 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. 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. 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 - 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.

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

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. 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.

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.

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 .

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 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.

IOl67 Nephro-protective activity of varunadi loha: an experimental study Santhosh BPurpose: It is a known fact that Iron is nephrotoxic, causing various.urinary diseases whichwhen untreated results in fatal condition like renal failure. But Ayurveda, after subjecting tovarious Samskaras (processings), has used Loha (Iron) in bhasma (calx) form in numerousformulations to treat urinary diseases. These diagonally opposite perceptions form the very baseof the present work where in Varunadi loha, a formulation containing Loha bhasma, describedin Bhaishjyaramavali was studied for its pharmacological action using Sprague Dawley rats asan experimental model. The study was carried out at National Toxicology Center (ftrTC), Pune(IAEC Clearance no.-RP 128-I8I2ll).Method: The acute toxicity study showed Varunadi loha to be safe at the maximum dose of2000 mg/kg. Gentamycin induced nephrotoxicity model was used for the study. In the pilotstudy of 15 days, it was noted that rats in tlre prophylactic group died at the end of 8th day. Soin the main study, prophylactic group was omitted. The main study was carried out with 24 ratswhich were equally divided in 4 groups as normal control, disease control, curative and safety.Result: In control group the results were not significant as the rats were non diseased and kepton normal diet. In disease control group, results were highly significant in serum creatinine andserum urea levels as the levels were raised. In curative group results were significant in serumlevels as there was moderate decrease in serum creatinine and serum urea levels after the treat-ment withVarunadi loha. In the safety group the results were non-significant indicating the drugshowed no adverse reactions at therapeutic dose.Conclusion: Significant decrease in serum creatinine and serum.urea in curative group wassuggestive that the drugVarunadi loha was delivering its best ro improve the lost kidney func-:tion.24 ABSTRACTS . 5th World Ayurveda Congress and Arogya Expo 2012

This was an observational single case design without controlled group. Result: After I(sharsutra ligation, the extra finger srarred necrosing within 24 hours. The fin- ger turned bluish to black in next 3 days with minimal pain ar rhe site of ligation and finally sloughed out in just nine days with minimal scar formation. Conclusion: Ksahrsutra Ligation showed excellent result in post axial polydactyly. The results are encouraging enough to warrant more studies to establish and promote this unique para sur- gical procedure i.e. Ksharsutra in the management of post-axial Polydactyly. 10t86 Evaluation of combined efficacy of greeva basti, patra pottali sweda and nasya in the management of cervical spondylosis Bhavya B K Purpose: Cervical spondylosis is one among the degenerative disc ailments. Recent study showed that middle aged population shows increased incidence of degenerative disc changes. This may be because of faulty regimen and lifestyle. In this busy schedule no one is having suf- ficient time to undergo all the treatment procedures one a.fter the other patiently, so the study conducted here is a combined process of Nasya, Griva Basti, Patra Pottali Sweda simultaneously to get maximum relief in a minimal period of time. Method: Study design- It was an open, randomized, preliminary clinical study. Sample size: Total 8 patients were registered, among them 1 was.drop out, whereas the 7 patients completed the treatment schedule. Intervention: Step 1 - Griva Basti with Prabhanjana Khuzumbu and Sa- hacharadiTaila, Step 2 -Patra Pottali Sweda, Step 3 - Nasya with Dhanvantara 101, Abhyantara: Dashamoola Kashaya (3 tsp 2 times per day before food). Result: Good response was seen in five patients, moderate response in one patient and mild response in one patient. Conclusion: Cervical Spondylosis is emerging as one of the most common diseases espe-cially in urban population. The prevalence of this disease has been expected to be increas-ing due to improper lifestyle and poor working, sleeping and sitting postures. Combined effect of griva basti, patra pottali sweda and nasya can offer good benefits in cervical spondylosis. Postural corrections during work, sleep, travel and avoiding elevated cushions below neck and regular exercises go on a long way in preventing Cervical Spondylosis. 10200 Management of systolic hypertension with shirodhara Pankaj P Tathe4 Nitin M Kamat Purpose: Increase in the lateral pressure exerted by the flowing blood during the contrac- tion of the heart is termed as SYSTOLIC HYPERTENSION, which causes adverse effects on many organs including vital organs and leads to multi-organ failure. Many medications acting at different levels are available in the conventional medicine, which are far from satisfactory and hence there is a need to find out cost effective and satisfactory alternatives. 26 ABSTRACTS . 5th World Ayurveda Congress and Arogya Expo 2012

Oral PresentationMethod: 30 newly diagnosed middle aged (30 to 50 years) patients of either sex with a rangeof 140 to 160 systolic blood pressure (Diastolic B.P < 90 mm. of Hg) were recruited forTilaTirila (Oil of Saeasum ind.icum Linn) Shirodhara 30 minutes daily for 14 days Blood pressurewas monitored in the morning, before and after Shirodhara, in evening and the record was ana-br.ed.Result: It was observed that on lst day Systolic B.P reduced by 4 to 8 mm of Hg at the end ofShirodhara, but remained the same as initial blood pressure by the evening. At the end of the 7thdayB.Preducedby8to l2mmof HgafterShirodharaandB.Pwaslowby6to l0mmofHginrhe morning and evening. Similar results were observed on 14th day. A striking observation wasmade that those patients having heaviness in the chest did not complain of the symptom afterfnst week of Shirodhara. Feeling of well being and sound sleep was also reported after starting&e treatment.Conclusion: Hence, it can be concluded that non-invasive modaliry like Shirodhara which isdevoid of any unwanted effects can be used for control of systolic hypertension.ro205Random open controlled critical study of vishamashana in an etiol-ogy of skin dis-order vicharchika i.e. eczemaMadhuri PachgharePurlrose: According to Acharya Charaka, vishamashana is agnivaishamyakaranam shresthameans irregular eating is the strongest etiological factor for disturbance in digestive fire. In thisstudy critical evaluation ofVishamashana is done as a etiological factor for skin disorderMettrod: Study design is a random open uncontrolled retrospective study. 256 patients of vi-charchika kushtha were examined and divided in two groups. In Group A, 156 patients havingvishamashana as causative factor were included. In Group B, 100 patients having causative fac-tor other than vishamashana were included.Result: Individual group wise demographic analysis of these patients is presented under theheading gender wise distribution, age wise, religion wise, diet wise, prakriti wise, agni wise placewise and vicharchika symptom wise. Comparison of symptoms of two groups was done by MT-nwhitney test and it was found to be significant for all symptoms except rukshata Associationof symptoms and causative factor done by Chi square test was also slightly significant exceptrukshata, association of agni, causative factors and symptoms of vicharchika is also significantby Chi square test. Conclusion: Mandagni is major samprapti ghatak when vishamashana is causative factor. Vishamashana is sannikrushta hetu for vicharchika and it is an etiological factor in genesis and aggravation of vicharchika i.e. eczema.Thus the importance ofVishamashna as preventive factor in Vicharchika is validated.

Oral Presentation r0208 Quality aspect and variability observed in physico-chemical charac- teristics and mineral content of ayurvedic herbo mineralformulations from Indian rnarket Pankaj Shukla Purpose: Quality aspect and variability observed in physico-chemical characrerisrics and min- eral content of ayurvedic herbomineral formulations from Indian market w.r.t brihat vat chin- tamani rasa. Method: Each of the selected herbomineral formulation was thoroughly investigated for the variation in pacaging material, label information, analytical parameters like rnoisture, pH, ash and mineral content such as Iron, Mercury, Gold, Copper and Zinc which play a crucial role in increasing the bioavailability of the drug to the cell. Result: Brand A has maximum iron content of about 8.g3 % w/w; Brand B has iron content of about 8.37 % w/w; Brand C has iron content of about 6.86 % dw and Brand D has low iron content of about 3.54 % dw. Similar is the case with other parameters.Conclusion: There are variations in quality of the drug from one brand to other. This has to beaddressed through development of adequate standards for drug content, process control, moni-toring misuse of label requirements. A vast maiority of our country population is using indig-enous herbomineral drugs for treatment and cure. If we claim that these drugs relieve patientsfrom pain and said indications, then manufacturing and marketing of ineffective medicines is acrime in disguise. It is therefore necessary that standardisation of Ayurvedic mineral medicinesshould be taken up as a priority programme. t1l2t2Experimental study of the antitoxic effect of shireesh by local applica-tion on bee stingsSamata TomarPurpose: The purpose of the study is to assess the efficiency of Shireesh (Albezzia Lebbeck)bark as local application on bee sting (of Apis cerena indica i.e. ACI).Method: It is a multidisciplinary research designed under the expert guidance of KVIC, puneand NationalToxicology Centre CNTC), Pune.

Due to ic properties and nutritional values, Drakshavaleha has been used as a Naimittika (promoter of specific vitality in specific disease) by some of the Ayurvedic physi-rirns in Rajasthan to a woman during her pregnancy expecting a good health of both mothernd her offspring. The objective of the study was to investigate the protective effect of Drak-rhavaleha against CP induced growth retardation in mice pups in the terms of body weight and(CR (crown-rump) length.ffsthod: Group I (Control): Pregnant mice (n=10) received 0.2 ml of vehicle (distilled wa-rm) intra-peritoneal on day 1 1 of pregnancy. Group II (Drakshavaleha): Pregnant mice (n= 1 0)received Drakshavaleha (16 g/kg) orally from day0to day18of pregnancy. Group III (CP):Pregnant mice (n=10) received Cyclophosphamide (10 mg/kg) intra-peritoneal on day l1 ofXtregnancy. Group IV (CP + Drakshavaleha): Pregnant mice (n=10) received CP (10 mg/kg)intra-peritoneal on day I I under cover of Drakshavaleha (16 g/kg) orally from day0 to day 18ofpregnancy.Result: Drakshavaleha (alone) increases the size and weight of the pups when given to mothermice during gestation period and the difference between the two groups (Group III and GroupfV) is statistically significant (p<0.001).Conclusion: In the present context Drakshavaleha can be conceived to be a Naimittika Ra-sayana to a woman during her pregnancy to obtain a healthy progeny.I02l t-rClinical study of klaibya (male sexual dysfunctions) w.s.r. to hyperten-sionAnurag Pandey, Mamta Tiwari, Pawan Kumar Godatwar, B K SevatkarPurpose: I{aibya (Male Sexual Dysfunction = MSD) is common among men of all ages, ithas been recently estimated that more than 152 million men worldwide experienced sexual dys-function in 1995, and that this number will rise by 170 million, to approximately 322 millionby the year 2O25.In the past years, it has been reported that most of the hypertensive patientshaving disability to perform sexual acts and comes under the MSD.

Ayurved advocates lekhankarmaend Arimedadi pratisaran. Charaka, Bhavprakasha andYogratnakar Arime-daditaila as mukhro-gnashaka. The present study aimed to study the effect of lekhankarma karma and ArimedadiTailam on dantasharkara.illlethod: 30 patients having dantasharkara were selected and scaling done with ultrasonic mas-chine in control group. In trial group, scaling was done in thirty patients followed by ArimedadiTailam pratisarana for two times a day for one month.Result: After scaling the Dantasharkara in both groups was persistent on third day but after90 days only 4 patients had the problem in trial group and 25 patients in control group. Dan-taveshtashoth, putiasyata and puyaraktasrava were relieved but in the next follow up recurrencewas observed in control group whereas in trial group there was no recurrence.Conclusion: Recurrence of Dantasharkara is delayed. Dantaveshtashotha, putiasyata andpuyaraktastrava got reduced immediately and there was no recurrence. ArimedadiThilam doesnot produce dantaharsha symptom after scaling. ArimedadiTailam has number of drugs whichacts as raktastambhak, shothahar, kaphavatashamak and mukhadurgandhinashak on account ofwhich it reduces above symptoms and also prevents dantaharsha and dantakshaya.I 02:t8Study of etiological factors for developmental anomaliesNish A BhaleraoPurpose: To asses the relevance of etiological factors for developmental anomalies as stated inayurvedic classics clinically as well as theoretically.Method: Relevant literature was collected compiled and analysed from Ayurvedic classics andmodern teratology. The etiological factors in Ayurvedic classics were categorised on the basisof a verse of Charaka i.e. Bija dosha, I(aladosha, Ashaya dosha, etc. Glinical study - samplesize = 100. Group A - 50 women who delivered baby with developmental anomaly. Group B- 50 women who delivered normal child. A detailed proforma was prepared which revealed thecondition associated with the patients. The most probable etiological factor was documentedaccording to the same classification given in the conceptual study i.e. bija dosha, ashaya dosha,kala and dosha, ahara dosha. Stastical analysis was done by applying chi square test.Result: The significance of etiological factors was separately computed with the help of chisquare test. The test was found to be significant for each etiological factor. Conceptually thefactors depicted in ayurvedic classics are correlating with the factors enumerated in modernrerarology. e.g.; Vikriti of bijabhaga - Chromosomal anomalies; Ekdesa of bijabhaga - singlegene disorders. Ashaya dosha - malformations caused by uterine constraint like telipes amnioticbands and limb body wall complex. I(ala dosha - Critical period during morphogenesis when aparticular organ is most susceptible to develop anomaly if exposed to a teratogen, age of motherand father etc. Organized by World Ayurveda Foundation and Government of Madhya Pradesh ABSTRACTS 33

Flowever, the peak positions and intensities were varying. Some new uniden-tifiable peaks were noticed. In all the samples, Cu was present in major or minor phase. OnlySample B showed presence of both CuO and Cu2O in it. Other Shodhit samples only containedCu2O and Cu.Conclusion: Presence of CuO in only Samany ShodhitTamra suggested its larger particle size.As, it was subjected to Vishesh Shodhana, it got converted to thermodynamically more stableCu2O and lesser particle size.Though Sample C and D had copper oxide in major phases, theyexhibited different XRPD pattern. This may indicate multiple crystal forms or polymorphismof copper compounds. Thus, XRPD is a crucial analytical tool to show that the structural andchemical rransformation of metal into metal compounds started from the step of Shodhanaitself. Furthermore, presences of metallic copper in all the samples denoted their partial conver-sion and evident need of Marana.36 ABSTRACTS . 5thWorldAyurvedaCongressandArogyaExpo20l2

Oral Presentationl1l2it2Management of female infertility by Uttar Basti ( tubal block-age)LaxmiPriya DeiPurpose: Tubal blockage causes 25-30% female infertility which can be considered as Sangatype of ArtavaVaha Srotodushti. So to remove the blockage, IJttar basti has been taken as theline of treatment.Method: Total (n=30) Patients of Primary / Secondary Infertility with unilateral or bilateraltubal blockage diagnosed by HSG attending OPD of SRPT, IPGT and RA, were selectedfor study and randomly grouped into A (n= 14), B (n= 16) one drop out. Patients with STD,Menorrhagia etc. were excluded. After Snehana Swedana andYoni Prakshalana by Panchaval-kala Kwath,Intra lJterine lJttara Basti (IUUB) ofYaval{shara taila 5 ml ior 6 days with 3 daysinterval, two consecutive cycles after stoppage of in Gr. A and I(umari Taila in Gr. B followedby head low position for two hours and hot water bag fomentation on lower abdomen. Followup was done for two months.Result: 85.71% (12) in Group A (n= 14) and 80% (12) in Group B (n= l6) showed patent tubesconfiimed by HSG after treatment. One patient in Group A and six in Group B conceived dur-ing follow up period.Conclusion: Tubal blockage is I(richrasadhya, PakwashayothaVyadhi caused by both Nija andAgantuja hetus. Uttar Basti in Ayurveda is a unique treatment protocol in Artava dusti. ThusruUB was effective in removing the blockage and brought out tubal patency due to the drugshaving I(aphavatahara, Tridoshghna, Sukshma, Sara, Katu, Ushna properties and Pramathiguna. Both groups had shown equally encouraging results opening the tube but conception ratewas more in Kumasi Taila Group than that ofYavakshara Thila group. Ayurvedic procedure i.e.IUUB had proved a highly effective treatment protocol for the management ofTubal blockagewithout any complications. So this therapy can be adopted as a specialized procedure to replacethe tubal microscopic surgery in future.I O2frllEcofriendly approach for management of Gram Pod Borer(H el i cove rp a ar mi g eral in Pi g eon peaYogesh KumarPurpose: Gram Pod borer (H. armigera) is considered among the most dreaded pest of agri-cultural crops world wide.

An attempt has been made tocorrelate them with the pathological investigationsMethod: CRF was designed with the help of ayurvedic classical textand patients of mootrak-rucchra vyadhi were selected for the study. Urine and blood samples were collected for routinetests of the urinary system.The relationship of those results with the related types of mootrakrucchra vyadhi were ob-served.Result: Out of 100 patients of mootrakruucchra, 72 werefrom different types of ashmari, i.e.vataj, pittaj and kaphaja ashmar, 12 from shukraja mootrakrucchra, l0 from pittaja and re-maining from plain kaphaja mootrakrucchra. In urine examination, pittai and pittashmariianyamootracrucchra showed more RBCs, kaphaja mootrakrucchra showed pus cells, higher specificgravity and presence of proteins in urine. Level of serum urea and serum creatinine did not showspecific correlation with any of rype of mootrakrucchra vyadhi of ayurvedic conceptConclusion: Mootracrucchra vyadhi shows the obstructive dysfunction in the passing of urinefrom urinary tract. The related abnormalities and related pathology reflected in the terms ofsigns and symptoms as per types of mootracrucchra.As serum urea and serum creatinine are related with the abnormality of process of formationof urine which is related with upper urinary tract i.e., kidney and its parts, levels of these bloodinvestigations do not show any specific correlation with any of types of mootrakrucchra, it seemsthat samprapti of mootrakrucchra is related lower urinary tract.

Some of the valuableand common medicinal plants are becoming rare due to their usefulness in common diseasesand exploitation.Therefore, it is needed to protect for their sustainable utilisation through iden-tification, proper documentation and conservation in-situ and ex-situ consefvation for exportpurpose.Method: The study was carried out in North East region of lJttar Pradesh. The total area ofsanctuary is about.90 sq km. The plant species were observed during th1 Seriods^and identifiedthrough field survey questionnaire and interaction with local people and forest officers.Result: The survey revealed that the medicinal flora comprised of 30 trees species, 15 herbsspecies and l0 climbers belonging to 35 families. There are greater opportunities for cultivationofTiliacora acuminata,Terminalia arjuna, Butea monosperma, Chorophytum borivilianum andAcacia nilotica.This study also suggests the need of sustainable harvesting practices with respectof collection of plants (root, stem, leaf, flower, fruit) and time of collection, so that there willbe minimum loss to these valuable resources. The local vaidyas are the main resource personswho actually know the traditional harvesting techniques and sustainable utilization of these life supporting plants. Conclusion: The habitat desmuction and exploitation are causing major threats to important medicinal plants. Since these valuable flora of the region are dwindling, some conservation strategies must be developed to save these life supporting resources. For critically endangered species an in-situ as well as ex-situ conservation and propagation, regular monitoring and evalu- ation for at least 10 years need to be carried out.

I O:t62 Role of viruddha ahara (fedru) in affecting rural health of Jamnagar region: an observational studyBhupesh Patel, Pravin Joshi, Amit Makwana, Neha parmar, sujeet sagarPurpose: In Ayurvedic classics,Virudhha ahara is explained in detail as aetiology for many dis-eases. These can be defined as substances which cause rhe vitiation of doshas but do not expelthem out and cause incompatibility in the body. Different regions have their own diet habits andcultures. Some of them are incompatible food habits too, which may cause certain diseases. Inrural areas of Jamnagar, Gujarat region, people consume FedrurM as a recipe in their regulardiet. Hencer present study was taken to evaluate the role ofViruddha ahara i.e. Fedru in affect-ing the rural health of Jamnagar region.Method: For this purpose, the patients visiting the satellite OPD, Rural Health centre, Sassoi, ofIPGT and RA, Jamnagar for various diseases and complaints were assessed. The prevalence ofSantarpanoth vyadhis like Amavata, Ajirna, Madhumeha, etc wirh common symptoms like An-gamarda, Gaurav, Aruchi, Praseka, etc was found to be in predominan.. u-orrg ahese patients.After the retrospective observational study, the common aetiological factor these patientswas found to be a special recipe called FedrurM which means a combination "-org raw milk and ofcuid/buttermilk.The critical analysis of the symptoms was done in 60 patients and grouped inrotwo categories viz.Viruddha ahara sevan janya vikara and Rasavaha srotas pradoshaj vikara.Result: Maximum number of patients (63%) were found in the second group i.e. Rasavahasrotas pradoshaj vikara.48 ABSTRACTS 5th worrd Ayurveda congress and Arogya Expo 2012

However, the science ofAygrveda looks upon it as a therapeutic entity. Raw aconite is always subjected to ShodhanaSamskara before being utilized in the Ayurvedic formulations for.use in therapeutics. In thisstudy, physico-chemical and phytochemical analysis of raw aconite (RV), treated (Shodhana)aconire by cows urine (Gomutra) (SM) and treated aconite by cows milk (Go-dugdha) (SD)were carried out. The aims are to point out the physical and phytochemical changes occurredduring the Shodhana procedure.*Iethod: The RV SM and SD have been analyzed physico-chemically by incorporating theroutine physico-chemical analysis like loss on drying, ash value, acid insoluble ash, water solubleextractive, alcohol soluble extractive and swelling index. Presence of various func-tional groupQrdetermination of starch and alkaloid by gravimetric and spectrophotometric methods, and chro-matographic profile (TLC and HPTLC) of RV SM and SD has also been carried out.The chiefalkaloid of aconite is aconitine, so the HPTLC profiles of RV SM and SD were compared withHPTLC of standard aconitine. All the samples were further evaluated for microbial and hearymetals and arsenic contamination. yo, 0.586 VoResult: Total alkaloids found in RV SM and SD by gravimetric method wete 3 092 yo 0.394and 0.659 o/o respectively and by spectrophotometric method these values wete 2.963 o/" and in SD the aconitineTa and, O .490 % respectively. The aconitine content of RV was O .267 2content was 0.0669 %, but it was completely absent in SM.Conclusion: The results reflects the importance of Shodhana procedure in the parlance of Ay-urveda. It may also be inferred that media plays an important role during Shodhana of aconite;and cows urine seems to be a better media than cows milk for Shodhana of aconite. ro:llloStudy on pathogenesis and management in thyroid dysfunction ayurvedic conceptsArfin Aloor, S Dattatreya Rao, M Bhaskar RaoPurpose: 1) Study and Analysis of thyroid disorders inAyurveda like Galaganda etc 2) Ayurvedic approach towards the Pathogenesis and management ofThyroid dysfunction, 3) Studyon the effect of Raktamokshana with LeechTherapy in Hypothyroidism.Method: l) Thyroid disorders in Ayurveda were studied and analysed with the help of Ay-urvedic Classics. 2) Ayurvedic approach made with the concepts of Samprapti in PathogenesisofThyroid dysfunction, 3) Methods of Management ofThyroid dysfunction in Ayurvedic clas- sics include a) Shodhana chikitsa - Raktamokshana, vamana etc., b) Shamana chikitsa - In- Organized by World Ayurveda Foundation and Government of Madhya Pradesh ABSTRACTS 49

I O,l0il Effect of maternal ahara on foetal outcome Neeru Nathani Purpose: Maternal Ahara is an important modulator of maternal health and foetal growth. Various dietary regimens for pregnant women are described under Garbhini Paricharya, em- phasising on real demand of the time for proper growth and development of foetus, for normal labour for keeping good health of the mother and making free from postnatal complications of mother and child. Birth weight of newborn is strongest indicator of perinatal mortality. Pathya Ahara during pregnancy could decrease the incidence of LBW babies, improves survival of new- borns and decreases perinatal mortaliry. Method: Pregnant women (100), registered in S.S.Hospital, BHU and delivered lirre born single babies were included and those with known medical illness, associated obstetric complications, unknown last menstrual period, cases of multiple pregnancy and congenital malformation were excluded. Pregnant women were subjected to detailed dietary profile to know the quality of food consumed during pregnancy and their newborns were subjected to anthropometric measure- ments to assess foetal outcome.Result: Out of 100 pregnant women 39 had taken Sawika- Rajasika ahara, 22had, Sawika-Thmsika ahara and 39 were taking Rajasika-Thmasika ahara. Most of the mothers taken Sat-vika-Rajasika ahara delivered fair or wheatish complexioned babies with higher birth weight andcrown-heel length. Majority of women with low birth weight, and dark complexioned babieswere taking Rajasika-Tamasika ahara. Significant association was observed between quality ofmaternal ahara and babyrMs head circumference, chest cir-cumference and mid-arm circum-ference. These measures were gradually less in babies of mothers taken Sawika-Thmasika andRajasika-Thmasika Ah a ra. Conclusion: Food items mentioned in Garbhini Paricharya are mainly Satvika in nature. Sat- vika Ahara is well nourishing and balanced diet containing all essential nurrients like carbohy- drates fats, vegetable proteins, minerals and vitamins. By improving the quality of maternal Ahara, foetal outcome will be better in the form of increased birth weight and decreased peri-,natal mortality.50 ABSTRACTS . 5th World Ayurveda Congress and Arogya Expo 2012

Quality assessment of root ofW. sorirniferous, grown in India has been published[Nasreen and Radha 20lll. However, root of W somnifera used in preparation of traditionalmedicines in Jaffna District are mainly purchased from local vendors that import it from India.Therefore, it was important to carry out a Quality assessment of the plant material available inJaffna to ensure the authenticity of this plant material and to prevent any adulteration, especiallywhen used in the powdered form.Method: For the quality assessment of root of W somnifera, six samples of this root powderwere used and physicochemical parameters such as ash values, loss on drying, pH and extractivevalues were carried out according to theWorld Health Organization ($fHO) guidelines [Anony-mous 1998]. A preliminary phytochemical screening was done to detect different phytorconstit-uents [PrashantTiwari et al 201 l]. All samples were tested and mean values along with standarddeviation were recorded.Result: It was found that the various physicochemical parameters such as total ashl water sol-uble ash, acid insoluble ash, sulfated ash, loss on drying and pH were found to be 5.76+0.09o/o,2.93!0.15%,0.63+0.04yo,1.92+O.04yo,g.L2+0.10%and 5.73+O.O2respectively.f,hepercent-age yields of hot-water extractable matter (30.8211 .09%) were greater than hot-ethanol extract-able matter (10.0+0.22%) of root of W somnifera.The phytochemical screening of hot aqueousand ethanolic extracts showed the presence of alkaloids, saponins, flavonoids, steroids, tannins,proteins, reducing sugar and coumarins and does not showed the presence of quinines or an-thraquinones.Conclusion:The quality assessment profile of root of W somnifera obtained in the present studyto be an immense value in identification and authentication of this plant and may help in pre-venting its adulteration (particularly when used in the powdered form).t042i,Sta ndardization of jalnimanjjan pu risha parikshaRajesh Uikey, Anukul Chanda KarPurpose: Ayurveda describes agni dushti to be the root cause of all diseases in humans. Thediagnosis of.these diseases is mainly based on clinical features supported by clinical examinationand ancillary investigations. For this several methods have been described in Ayurvedic textswhich can be broadly classified into Roga and Rogi pariksha. These examinations are mainlybased on clinical examination. Examination based on laboratory investigations is rather a latedevelopment pertaining to medieval period. Mutra Pariksha and Purisha Pariksha were themain laboratory investigative tools in the past. Jalnimanjjan purisha pariksha, an old method ofstool examination has been described in number of Ayurvedic texts of medieval period whichwas very popular in those times but now its use has become obsolete. Hence, it is importantas a first step to revive this technique to standardize it.This study aimed at standardizing thistechnique of Jalnimanjjan purisha pariksha and observing for the normal variable range in 30 Organized by World Ayurveda Foundation and Government of Madhya Pradesh ABSTRACTS 53

This equipment was attached with aphoto graphic device. 50 randomly selected cases were divided into two groups. Group I consist-ed of 10 healthy volunteers and group II consisted of 40 pre diagnosed cases of different typesof cancer. Patients were kept a sleep at 9 PM. On next morning (5 AM) mid stream urine of thefirst urination was collected in a standard sized beaker of 250 ml. Sample beaker was kept in aspecifically designed glass and fiber cabinet, which was devoid of air wave. A 10 ml glass burettefilled with Tila taila (Sesame oil) was fixed over beaker containing urine. One drop of sesameoil was dropped over the stable surface of urine from a distance of 2 cm. The oil drop dispersalpattern on the surface of collected urine sample was recorded photographically. It was analyzedperiodically at monthly intervals for three times with pre treatment pattern.Result: The results of oil spreading nature, direction and shape over urine surface were com-pared with modern biochemical, hematological and radiological parameters in differ-ent stagesof cancer.Conclusion: The pattern of dispersal of sesame oil was progressively changed in relation to theimprovement in subjective and objective parameters in L,SOl treated cases.

Male Swiss Mice, weighing 20-28 gm, were divided into 4groups of 6 animals each forTetrabenazine antagonism test, and 4 groups of 10 animals.eachforYohimbine toxicity enhancement test. In both these tests, mice in Group I, II and III weretreated with distilled water, 50% alcoholic extract of MN in 260 mdkg (single dose) and 520mg/kg (double dose), p.o., respectively. Whereas, the animals in Group fV were given standarddrugs Imipramine (20 mg/kg per oral) and Desipramine - Hcl (10 mg/kg i.p.) in both the tests,respectively. Outcome measures were duration of catalepsy, degree of ptosis and the mortalityrate of the animals.Result: Cataleptic score and degree of ptosis were significantly reduced (p<0.001**) in the testdrug of Group II and III when compared with group I, in a dose dependent manner, and no sig-nificant difference was found between group III and IV. InYohimbine toxicity enhancement test,the mortality rate was significantly increased at p<0.001 in group II and III, and at24hr sig-nificant difference was observed when mortality rate was compared among the groups, betweenI and III (p<0.011), and between I and IV (p<0.05), berween II and III (p< 0.011); and themean time of mortality in group III was observed significantly less (p<0.0001) when comparedwith group I, II and IV. In both these tests, no significant differ-ence was found between theresults of group III and group IV._.Conclusion: It is concluded that the test drug has produced an antidepressant effect with aspecific mechanism of action by reducing the cataleptic and ptosis effect produced byTBZ, andin-creasing the mortality rate which directly shows the increase in noradrenaline concentra-tionat the nerve terminals.I OtIirTAntinociceptive activity of two different samples of chaturbeeja anexperimental evaluationKshitij ChauhanPurpose: Chaturbeeja, an Ayurvedic compound formulation consisting of four herbal drugsnamely Methika (Trigonella foenum graecum Linn.), Chandrashoora (Lepidium sativumLinn.), Kalajaji (lr{igella sativa Linn.) andYavanika (Trachyspermum ammi Linn.).This for-mulation is indicated in the management of Indigestion, Colic, Flatulence, Lumbago, Pain inflanks and Vatavyadhi etc. Among the four drugs of this formulation, the botanical source ofKalajaji is taken as Nigella sativa Linn. by some practitioners, while some physicians use Carumcarvi Linn. as source of Kalajaji.

I O5$4 Role of yashadamrita malahara and sindhooraditaila in vicharchika (eczema) Ambili Nampoothiry Purpose: Skin disorders or Kushta roga are the most common pathological conditions these days. Among these Vicharchika is one such skin disease which can be co-related to Eczema of the contemporary science. In modern science there are a number of drugs for Vicharchika (eczema)but a useful cure is yet to come. Hence in this studyYashadamrita malahara and sind- hooradi taila are utilised to find out their comparative efficacy on man-agement ofVicharchika. Method: 30 patients of Vicharchika with confirmed diagnosis taken from OPD section of PGRCDGM Ayurvedic medical college and Hospital Gadag were studied under the group A,B,C, each group containing 15 patients. Patients of group A receivedYashadamrita mala-hara and group B received Sindhooradi taila. Result: The results obtained in the groups are arrived on the basis of varna, kandu, pidika, srava, vedana and Hb%o, TC, DC, ESR and AEC. The data is statistically analysed. The result obtained in the study proved that both the formulations had 40% patients cured, 36.66% much responded, 16.66% moderately responded, 6.66% responded. Conclusion: The study was conducted to evaluate efficacy of yashadamrita malahara and sind- hooradi taila in management ofVicharchika. Both the formulations are having similar values for kandu. But Yashadamrita malahara is highly significant for sravi vicharchika and Sindhooradi taila is significant for rukshaVich.archika. a 70 ABSTRACTS . 5th World Ayurveda Congress and Arogya Expo 20t2

Oral Presentation In Sushkakshipaka; treatment is advised in the form of Snehana therapy eirher orally or local application in the form of tarpana, aniana, nasya etc. In modern science, the treatment is done in the form of artificial tear drops; which provide temporary relief only. Although surgical proce- dures for managing moderate to severe dry eye, have their own side effects and limitations. Considering all these factors, it is proposed to evaluate the snehana effect of herbomineral Ay- urvedic compound preparation Mahoushadha Anjana and Anutaila nasya for comparison in a series of patients of Sushkakshipaka on various scientific parameters to come out with safe, effective, readily available and economic treatment protocol. Method: A clinical trial was done on 60 clinically diagnosed parients randomly divided into 3 groups. In lst group patients were treated with Mahoushadha Anjana, in 2nd group with Anu Taila Nasya and 3rd group was advised coinbined therapy i.e. Mahoushadha Anjana and Anu Thila Nasya. Comparative study was done. Result: Significant results were obtained which will discuss at the rime of paper presentation. Conclusion: The study shows that Mahoushadha Anjana, AnuThila Nasya alone were effective in alleviating symptoms of Sushkakshipaka to lesser exrent but both combined drug therapy had much greater potential to ameliorate the symptoms of Sushkakshipaka. No adverse effects of the study drug were observed during the study. The research therapy has potential of reducing morbidity pattern of Sushkakshipaka as compared to previous morbidity history. lo59r Ethno-medicinal study of plants used in ratagaya (erysipelas neona- torum); a survey conducted in Sri Lanka Sriyani Chandrika Kasturirathna Purpose: Rataga ya is a peculiar disease among infants in Sri Lanka. Indigenous medical texts provide elaborate details of the condition in which the skin of the baby turns out to be com- pletely red. This condition is similar to the disease Shishu Visarpa (Maha padma) that has been described in Ka shyapa Samhita. A number of forms of traditional herbal application are used in the management of this condition; kalka, kwata, taila, prelaepa and avaga hana. , l Identifuing the most popular medicinal plants and specific morphological parts of plants that are l used in various forms of applications used in Rataga ya are the objectives of this study. i ,l Method: A survey through a structured questionnaire was conducted among 50 randomly se- I lectedTraditional Medical Practitioners of$Testern Province in Sri Lanka.The information ob- I tained through the questionnaire was used to identiSr the commonly used medicinal plants for t Rataga ya. I fr Result: Results obtained from the survey revealed that, 96 plants species are used both inter- N nally and externally in treatment for Rataga ya. Among them, seven plants species Terminalia I chebula (76.2%),Ixora coccinea (61.9%), Pterocarpus sanralinus (57.1%), Gly-cyrrhiza gla-.bta (524%r), Hibiscus rosa-sinensis (42.8%), Bacopa monnieri (42.5%) and Mollugo cerviana (42.8%) are the most popular plants used internally. The study also showed frequency rates of_-usage of various parts of these plants; tender leaves (38.5%),Whole plant (17 .7%),Flowers and-flower buds (1l.4yo), Fruits (12.5%), Roots (I2.5%), Stem and stem bark (g.3%) and hard wood (4.1%).Conclusion: According to Ayurveda classics, four of the above seven plants constitute Ka-pha-Pitta hararM properties whileTerminalia chebula and Glycyrrhiza glabra exhibitTri-dosha-72 ABSTRACTS . 5th World Ayurveda Congress and Arogya Expo 2012

The seat of which is third layer as per Charak and fourth layer of skin as per Sushrut. The disease doesnt result into physical pain but gives mental trauma to the patient and directly or indirectly affect the potentiality of the person. Due to these reasons, the topic has been selected for the study. The study aims to analysis the clinical effect of selected classical prescribed drug formulation. Method: The study was carried out in government Ayurvedic College and hospital Raipur. Forty OPD patients of Kilas ([anmottar) were selected from Kayachikitsa department and di- vided into two equal groups A and B. On the basis of Dosh, Dooshya, chronicity and intensity spread of but inclusion criteria was mainly depigmentation. Group A patients has less than six months chronic and almost stableVitiligo patches. They were given Goumutra Bhavit Bakuchi. Churna, consisted of 2 parts Goumutra Bhavit Baku-chi and 3 part blackTil along with Anupan of Dhatrikhadir quath. Twenty patients of Group B which hasVitiligo patches.with high spread tendency and more than six months chronic, were given Nishoth + Triphala churna as a Nityavirachan along with the treatment given to group A. Treat- ment was given for six month with intermittent follow up period of 15 days. Evaluation was done on the basis of marks based on the colours, size and shapb of the patches etc. and the data was analyzed using frequency distribution and proportion. Result: Percentage relief on syrnptoms has been observed more in group B patients as com- pared ro group A.This shows that Shaman Aushadhi along withVirechan is more effective. Conclusion: It can be concluded that Goumutra Bhavit Bakuchi Churna along with I(hadi- ramalki anupan and Nityavirachan has significant role inVitiligo. lOi-r*lll Mixed anxiety depression disorder (madd): a new diagnostic entity - Evaluating the role of medhya rasayanas in its nranagement Jyoti ShankqrTripathi Purpose: Epidemiologic studies conducted since 1980 have consistently demonstrated, on the basis of standardized diagnostic assessments, that there is a substantial overlap be-tween differ- ent types of Anxiety and Depressive Disorders. In 1992,tir,e ICD -10 intro-duced the Mixed Anxiety Depression Disorder (MADD) as a new diagnostic category (Code No: F41.2).This category should be used when symptoms of Anxiety and Depression are both present but nei- ther is clearly predominant, and neither type of symptom is present to the extent that justifies a diagnosis if considered separately. The purpose of the present study is to evaluate the role of Ayurvedic Medhya Rasayan compound, Saraswat Churna in this clinical entity.

This highly prevalent condition substantially affects the quality oflife and is an economic burden too, if left untreated it can result in visual morbidity. Despitethe magnitude of problem no definitive cure is available in modern system of medicine and pal-liative measures are inadequate while ayurveda gives an elaborated account of management ofShushkakshipaka.In lieu of above facts this study with an objective to study the conceptual resemblance be-tweenShushkakshipaka and DES, and evaluate the comparative effect of Mahoshadh Sarpi Anjana onDES with that of artificial tear drops was done.Method: An open random comparative study was designed. 30 patients of Shushkakshipaka/DES were randomly divided into two groups:- Group A (Standard Group) was given CarboxyMethyl Cellulose (CMC) eye drops while Group B (Trial Group) was given Mahoshadh SarpiAnjana in ointment form. Duration of trial was 15 days. An assessment criteria was used to re-cord the observations on each visit which were statistically analyzed.Result: Trial group patients showed encouraging results in terms of percentage relief. In groupA marked and modefate improvement was seen respectivelyin 8% and 6l% patients while ingroup B 3l% and 69%o patients showed marked and moderate improvement respectively withintergroup comparison showing statistically significant improvement in group B.Conclusion: DES is a similar disease entity to the Shushkakshipaka and Mahoshadh Sarpianjana is cheap and more effective for the management DES/Shushkakshipaka in comparisonto CMC drops. Thus ayurveda holds an upper hand in management of this so called modernworld disease. 74 ABSTRACTS . 5thWorldAyurvedaCongressandArogyaExpo20l2

Inaddition, the Chemotherapy is associated with large number of adverse reactions which affectthe psychology as well as quality of life (QOL) of the patients. Therefore in the light of abovefacts, present study with a new herbo mineral compound I-AS01 was undertaken which compo-sition of a large number of known herbal, metallic and mineral substances.Method: It was prepared with strict classical compliance of ancient Ayurvedic literature byLavanya Ayurvedic Research Center for Cancer and AIDS. It has been given in such femalecancer patients after obtaining a clearance from the Institutional Ethical Committee (IEC) andInformed Consent from the patients. Majority of these patients were the terminal cases whocome after being rejected by other Cancer hospitals. All the objective parameter including he-matological, biochemical, radio-logical and CA- marker were taken into account for assessmentof efficacy of I-ASO1. Sixty cases of breast (35 cases) and cervical- uterine (25 cases) carcinomawere randomly selected from the OPD of the Lavanya Ayurvedic Hospital during Jan, 2011 toApril, 2Ol2 onbasis of the objective parameters and inciusion/exclusion criteria.Result: It was observed that the sizes of the tumor as well as tumor markers were reduced andQOL was improved markedly.Conclusion: Toxic effects were not found in any subject in regards to LFT, KFT and in afterparameters while the Cancero-static effect was markedly observed Organized by World Ayurveda Foundation and Government of Madhya Pradesh .

Oral Presentationt07 t2A clinical study on the management of primary hypothyroidism - AnAyurvedic approachKrishnakumar Naick N, Krishna Kumar K MPurpose: Primary Hypothyroidism is an endocrinal disorder due to h-vpofunctioning of thyroidgland. It is estimated to have affected almost 200 million of world population suffering fromThyroid Disorders. Modern medicine recommends lifelong use of Hormone therapy.In light ofAyurveda if we analyze Dosha Dhatu Dushti in Primary Hypothyroidism we can find Dushti ofKapha, Rasa and Medo Dhatus and Mandata of Jatharagni and Dhatwagnis.The line of treat-ment to be adopted isVamana and Kaphahara Chikitsa.Method: Total of 40 patients were taken for the study under two groups consisting of 20 pa-rients each. Group A received Amapachana with Thrikatu Churna, Snehapana with VachadyaGhritha,Vamana with MadanaphaladiYoga in Kanchanara kashaya andVidangadi Loha as Sha-manaushadhi. Group B received Thb. Levothyroxine.Result: The therapies provided highly significant results in most of the parameters. The re-sults were encc,uraging with relief ranging from 52.38o/o to 79.630/o in Group-A and 42.lYo to78.33% in Group-B.The comparative efficacy of the therapy on Dosha Dushti showed statisti-cally not significant result in the control group. The therapies in both groups showed improve-ment in Hbyo,T3,T4 and a decrease in body weight,TSH level, RBS and Serum Cholesterol-In Group-A the patients who have not takenThb. Levothyroxin showed good response than thepatients who had the history of Hormone therapy.Conclusion: The analysis for the signs and symptoms of Primary Hypothyroidism reveals thein-volvement of Kapha Dosha and Dushti of its Asrayi Dhatus i.e. Rasa and Medas and its treat-ment should be aimed at reducing Kapha Dosha and correcting Rasa and Medo Dhatwagni.Kaphahara Chikitsa adopted in Primary Hypothyroidism will have effect on Rasa and MedaDhatwagni and also corrects Dushti ofJatharagni and related Dhatwagnis and thereby providingbetter result in this disease. loTM Clinical evaluation of the efficacy of kshara karma with Apamarga kshara and Jatyadi taila pichu in the management of cervical erosion (karnini yonivyapad) Pragya Gupta Purpose: Cervical erosion is one of the commonest gynaecological disease which includes large sec-tion of women in reproductive age group and needs medical attention and non sur- gical treatment. In modern system it is managed with diathermy and cryosurgery which has various side effect like cervical stenosis, accidental butns, etc. Karnini yonivyapad described in Ayurvedic text books can be correlated with cervical erosion. In Ayurveda.treatment of karnini yoniryapada by kaphahara chikitsa is recommended with Apamarga kshara which has properry of lekhana, sodhana, ropana, stambhana and kaphghna and Jatyadi taila which has property of vatashamak, shleshmhara, mamsapakarshana, shodhana and ropana.

It is burning problem of the society. Due to ir-regular and improper food habits and busy stressful lifestyle, people are prone to this disease.Amlapitta is closely related with Ahar, Vihar and Achar. Nidan parivafjan (avoiding causativefactors) constitutes one of the primary line of treatment along with pathyasevana (beneficialfood consumption and good lifestyle). In Amlapitta, Nidan parivarjan and pathya sevana is veryimportant. For this, we have to know the root cause of Amlapitta in todays lifestyle. This stud-"-was done with the aim of identi$ing the etiological factors triggering hyperacidity and ro ex-plore the effect of dietary regi-men in controlling the disease.Method: The study was carried out on 100 patients suffering from Amlapitta, ageing between2A to 45 years, who were selected from OPD and IPD of Kayachikitsa, Government AlrrrvedHospital, Nagpur.

  • 98. Oral Presentation 4400 tonnes in 2004-05 with an annual growth rate 2Lo/o.The increasing demand in global and domestic market causes pressure on its sources, mainly wild Forest being the primary source so far. Dwindling forest cover, unscientific and exploitative collection leads to loss of supply source and thregt to germ plasm.This has rendered many medicinal plants as critically endangered and consequent ban on collection.Method: Germ-plasm conservation and cultivation to be the best way forward for sus- seemstainable utilisation of medicinal plants. Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is widely used, pri-oritised A1urvedic herb having anti-stress, antioxidant, general ronic uses. More than 2OO ay-urvedic for-mulations use Ashwagandha as main ingredient. Its annual demand is 7000 tonneswhich is increasing at 1500 tonnes per year.Result: It grows naturally in subtropical region and is collected from wild and fields, Rampantcol-lection has once lead to critical pressure situation on its germ-pla5m. This was noticed anda lot of effort was put in for its sustainable production. The following works have been done - I .Agro-nomic research to develop POP, Variety improvement, naruralisation, 2.

In Ayurvedic practice Butea monospermai}.lilr (palash) is in clinical use forhundreds of years as a contraceptive. Seeds of Buteamonospermaif are also used as an anthelrnitic and antimicrobial agent. The objective of present study was tot::. search the effect of Butea monosperma seeds on the ovary and thymus of mice. Method: Butea monosperma (Fabaceae family) locally known as Palash (Dhak) is administered orally for three consecutive days to female albino mice. On 4th day when mice was sacrificed its ovary and thymus showed significant changes histologically. Comparison of apoptotic cells and DNA fragmentation in treated and control mice were also done. Result: The observations of this study suggest that oral administration of Palash seeds to female mice results in a massive atrophy and degeneration of ova in almost all the follicles, irrespective of the stage of their development and induction of apoptosis in the oocytes and other support- ing cells of the ovary. On the other hand, Palash administration resulted in increase of cellularity in the thymus with a decrease in the induction of apoptosis and augmentation of cell prolifera- tion. Conclusion: This indicates that Palash administration has tissue-specific effects. Palash acts as an antifertilit54 agent and immunomodulator.

Oral PresentationMethod: A total of 452 people aged 35-55 years were selected for the survey and their dailyregimen was documented ott the basis of a special questionnaire containing 39 ob-jects of di-nachary. People with Juvenile Diabetes Mellitus and congenital anomalies were excluded.Result: During the assessment of the results it was revealed that 83.60/o of Halehalasur villagepeople followed most of the daily regimen asked in questionnaire. The rural diets were mainlyof vegetarian type, limited in variety and low in fat and protein content. Physical activity amongthe villagers is substantial and there are no sedentary jobs in the village.Conclusion: The incidence of Madhumeha was less in Halehalasur village as a result of fol-lowing most of the regimens of food and life style along with sadvritta palana as per ayurveda.The substantial physical activities of Halehalasur village population resulted in improved fitness,increased lean body mass, decreased adipose tissue stores, weight control and sadvritta palanakeeps the healthy psychological state and in turn justifies the superiority of traditional rural life-sfyle in minimizing the occurrence of Madhumeha (Diabetes Mellitus).I100:tAn approach towards standardization of shadguna rasasinduraRohit Gokarn, Biswajyoti PatgiriPurpose: Rasasindura (RS) is a sublimated mercurial preparation known for its use in dif-fe-rent formulations. Literature claims that, the efficacy of RS will increase with the quantity ofsulphur and duration of heating. Hence Shadguna RS (t:6 proportion of Hg:S) is said to be su-perior. Many such formulations are not in market or industry due to lack of standardisation andenough data to prove the claims. Previously attempt has been made to standardise SamagunaRS (Yadav.P In present study an attempt was made to standardize mode of preparation ofShadguna RS and analyse its physico-chemical properties.Method: Purified mercury and sulphur were triturated till formation of black sulphide of mer-cury (devoid of shine) and was impregnated with Aloe vera Linn. Thus formed powder wasplaced in glass bottle coated with l0layers of cloth and multani mitti. Bottle was placed in Elec-trical Muffle Furnace (EMF) and heat was given for 168 hrs with gradual rise in temperarure(Kramagni). After observing all chief desired characteristics in process, bottle was sealed and al-lowed for sublimation and thus formed product was carefully collected. Same way three batchesof RS were prepared to ensure standardization and reproducibility. Final product was screenedfor physico-chemical and XRD analysis.Result: Average abgolute yield of RS was 12.45%o and 7 4.7%o as per law of definite proporrion.Physico-chemical analysis revealed following results: Loss on drying-O.4, Ash value-O.35,TotalMercury-86.69%o andTotal Sulphur-13.07%. XRD report showed RS in HgS (|.{atural Cinna-bar) form with Hexagonal crystal structure.Conclusion: Shadguna RS can be prepared by adopting 168 hrs of gradual rise in temperaturewith 56 hrs of Mild(T20-250 degree C), Moderate (250-45A degree C) and Stern (450-600 de-gree C) temperature.

To revive this technique it is necessary that the methodology of this test shouldbe standardised so that the observations could be reproducible. With this aim, a study has beenundertaken to standardise the technique of Thila Bindu Pariksha on the basis of materials andmethods used in ancient times.Method: Taila bindu pariksha was done in apparently healthy individuals and various pa-ram-eters for doing this test i.e - Shape and size of patra (Testing containers), volume of the urine,size of the oil drop, height of the oil drop from the surface of urine, variety of sesame oil etc.based on the literature were changed one by one and observations were noted down. The wholemethod was recorded in form of video clips for proper evaluation.100 ABSTRACTS . 5th World Ayurveda Congress and Arogya Expo 2012

So many types of shapes oftila onthe surface of urine have been described for good and bad prognosis by various texts like inVangasena Samhita,Vasavarajiyam,Yogatarangini,Yogaratnakara etc. There is no uniformity inthe shapes as described in the texts which may indicate bad or good prognosis. Hence it wasthought to study and analyse all the shapes to conclude the precise shapes which may indicategood or bad prognosis.Method: 1 All the shapes described in various texts indicating bad or good. prognosis werecollected. 2 Their meaning was derived by referring various dictionaries specially Shabda Kal-padruma 3 As per the meaning the relevant figures were downloaded from the internet. 4. Thefigures were painted by the help of paint software to analyse the shapes to draw a conclusionregarding the bad or good prognosis.Result: 1. On analysis of figures indicating good prognosis revealed Circular, Semi-circularOval, orTriangular shapes. 2. Similarly the figures indicating bad prognosis revealed either Lin-ear or Oval or Round shape having multiple projections.Conclusion: Hence it is concluded that if the shape of Taila on urine is Circular, semi-circularOval, orTriangular then it indicates good prognosis. If the shape is Linear, Round, or Oval hav-ing multiple projections than prognosis is bad.lO2 ABSTRACTS . 5th World Ayurveda Congress and Arogya Expo 2012

The recovered extractswere concentrated by evaporating on rotary evaporator. The concen-trated extracts w,ere testedagainst these bacteria by agar disc diffusion method in 90 mm petriplate containing nutrientalar medium. The petriplates were incubated for about 72 hours at 37 0 C temperature and thezone of inhibition was measured in mm. The common pyogenic bacteria usedfor study wereSteptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus anreus, Escherichia coli, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa Result: In the present investigation most significant results were obtained with ethanolic extracts of all the selected plants while aqueous extracts tested were found to be more effective against streptococcus pyogenes, staphylococcus al.$eus, and Escherichia coli, as compared to Pseudomonas had aeruginosa.The hot aqueous extracts prepared from Curicuma longa, and Emblica fficinalis shown maximum zone of inhibition against Staphytococcus a.ureus and Escherichia coli. Methano- lic extracts of Curcuma longa, Comiphora wightii, and Ocimum sanctum showed maximum zone of inhibition against streptococcus pyogenes and Escherichia coli as compared to other bacteria. Conclusion: The results of present investigation clearly indicate that the antimicrobial ac-tivity vary with the plants species, plant parts and solvents used for extraction Over all results showed that ethanolic extracts of the selected plants were found to be more inhibitory as compared to aqueous and methanolic extracts against pyogenic bacteria. It is concluded from the results that the inhibitory effect may be due to antibacterial constituents in the plant parts therefore these plant extracts can be used against pyogenic infection t 120:l Effectiveness of an integrative whole system approach to the treat- ment of gridhrasi: an observational study C Shruthi, SJSriranjini, M KVivek Sanker, G G Gangadharan Purpose: Gridhrasi correlates with modern Lumbago with Sciatica.

Method: 54 Gridhrasi patients (ages 41.1110.3 years, M: F-27:27 mean duration of illness - L852+25.87 months) receiving individualized treatmenrs from I-AIM Health Care Centre op and IP departments were recruited. Subjects were assessed at the outset) and after each period of treatment, using: theVisual analogue scale (VAS); Straight leg raising test (SLR); and Roland Morris disability questionnaire (RIvlDQ). Statistical Analysis used Excel and Graph pad. Result: 16 subjects dropped out,5 (13.2%) failed to respond to rrearment,Z (lg.Ayo) were borderline non-responders, and 26 (68.4%) showed significant improvements in pain and dis- ability. Analysis divided responders into acute (ill less than six months) and chronic (ill more than six months) cases: the chronic responded better (I5/I7) rhan acute (lll2l).Reductions in VAS scores per treatment period were 2.5 units for Chronic and 3.72 units for,cute patients: reductions in RJVTDQ scores per period were 3.9 for Chronic and,4.7 forAcute. Range of move- ment assessed by SLR also improved. Conclusion: Ayurveda institutions can perform similar studies by keeping standard clinical records, and expand Ayurvedas evidence base. Treatment registers in Ayurveda can be created. These observational results are encouraging and justify further clinical trials using similar inte- grative whole system approaches. l t2ro To evaluate medohar (antiobesity) effect of guggulu by using differ- ent shodhan media Rakesh Bramhankar, Anurag Rajput, Anand Choudharyt I PG RTA Gujrat, yunteda (Jnhtersity Jamnagar Purpose: Obesity is a world wide health problem. Obese patients suffer from various dis-easeslike IHD, steoarthritis, loss of libido etc. Hence this study is ro evaluate the antiobesity effect of Guggulu. Guggulu is well known for its vathar and medohar property (A.S.S. I3ll2). By us-ing different shodhan media like Triphala and Gomutra which enhance its antiobesiry properry,some pharmaceutical process should be developed by which we can obtain high yields and moretherapeutic effect. Shodhan media is also important for decreasing the disintegration time (An-jana Chaube June L994) of guggulu preparations. Sushruta has prescribed Guggulu with Go-mutra in obesity for its karshan property" Gomutra is having pharmacodynamic properties likeKatu, Lavan rasa and Ushna virya and Triphala has atihyperlipidemic and antioxidant effects.Triphala shodhit Guggulu (TSG) has showed weight reduction effect as compared to Gomutrashodhita Guggulu (GSG), but GSG has showed good antihyperlipidemic action (R.A. SinghMarch 2OO3).Method: Pharmaceutical process:Two groups was madeTSG and GSG in three batches.TSGobtained more yield as compared to GSG. GSG is having less sticking property and less disin-tegration time. Clinical Study: 35 patients are selected from RS and BK OpD GAU Jamnagar.Patients are divided in two groups,TSG and GSG ro evaluate anti obesity activiry ofTSG andGSG at the dose of 1 g thrice a day for 30 days with diet control.Result: Shodhan media is important for enhancement of particular action of guggulu and todecrease the disintegration time.

There are two types of determinants of Prakruti i.e. Garbha sarira Prakruti (prenatal) which develops during the conception and Jatottar Prakruti (postnatal) which develops after the birth. Garbha sarira Prakruti is unchangeable but the Jatottara Prakruti can be variable. In this Jatottar Prakruti corresponds to persons Jati, Kula, Desa, KalarVaya, and Pratyatmaniyata Profession is ones regular work. It is h5pothetically considered that Profession is individuals Jati which is one of the most influencing factor for Prakruti.

To explore the scope of the applied aspect of Prakruti,2.To draw some conclusions about the relation between prakruti and Profession, 3. To give some guidelines in the choice of Profession. For this special research proforma for analysis of Prakruti and a proforma for survey of Profession was prepared. Data was collected by following primary data collection method Result: In this study total 1032 persons have been surveyed from different professional groups. After analyzing the observatiohs it was concluded that Prakruti influences ihe professional life of every individual. It was a general observation that in total results wherever the association of I(apha was seen more) it has shown the better results with higher percentage of acceptabiliry suitabiliry success rate etc. in all the respective Professions. Similarly wherever the association or dominance of Vata dosha was seen, the chances of failure rate were much higher due to its qualities of instabiliry lack of concentrarion etc. Conclusion: Among the Jatottara Prakruti, Jati-prasakta Prakruti can be considered as the na- ture of ones professional Prakruti. tt22:l Antisecretory and antiulcer activities of Ecripta alba Linn. in rats Puneet K samaiya, chandana v Rao,vijay Kumar, sanjeev K ojha, Bavani Eswaran I Pharmacognosy and Ethnopharmacology Division, Narional Botanica! Research Institute (CSIR), Rana Purpose: Eclipta alba Linn. (Asteraceae) is used traditionally in Indian system of medicine as anti-inflammatory, hepatoprotective, hypoglycemic, immunomodulator, in wound heal-ing, and as a potent hair growth promoter. The study was aimed to evaluate the antisecretory and gastro- protective effects of 50% ethanol exrracr of Ecl.ipta alba. Method: Eclipta alba extract (EAE) at 50, IOO and 200 mg/kg was administered orally, twicedaily for 5 days to prevent from, cold restraint stress (CRS), and pylorus ligation (pL) inducedulcers. Antioxidant studies were performed in CRS induced ulcer model. Gastric wall mucusand secretion parameters like volume of gastric juice, acid output and pH were estimated in pLinduced ulcer model. Ranitidine (50 mg/kg, p.o.) was used as positive control for comparison. Result: A dose dependent and significant (p <0.05) reduction in lesion index was observed in ulcer induced rats treated with EAE at various doses when compared with control group in both the models Gastric wall mucus production was significantly (p<0.05) elevated inEAE rreated rats Significant attenuation in lipid peroxidation, superoxide dismutase activity was observed, whereas, catalase enzyme levels were elevated in EAE treated groups. Antisecretory activity of EAE was evidenced by significant reduction in gastric volume, acid output and increase in.gastric pH when compared to their tontrol values.The findings were further supported by his- topathological exam-ination of stomach in both EAE treated and control rats.Conclusion: The results of the present investigation suggest that ethanol extract of Eclipta atbapossesses potent antisecretory and gastroprotective activity.

  • 125. Oral Presentation Awareness of the scientific basis of Dhoopana can disseminate and en-courage the common man to follow this method effectively and prevent many epidemic air borne infective disease. Method: Dhoopana dravyas which are mentioned in Dhoopa kalpa adhyaya of Kashyapa Sam- hita have been identified as organic natural polymers in terms of organic chemistry. And when these polymers are subjected to incomplete combustion (DHOOPANA), they give rise ro sev- eral aerosol form of phenolic compounds like formaldehyde, propylene glycol etc., which are established disinfectants. This would be demonstrated in the presenration with substantial ob- servations made in industrial organic chemistry.Result: Dhoopana karma is being practised in our hospital, in pediatric ward as a routine pro-cedure to prevent the common infectious diseases for the last 3 years. In our observa-tion thefever caused by common infectious agent is by and large prevented.Conclusion: In any religious tradition, Dhoopana is an essential part of worship. Like homa,dhoopana in Indian tradition, loban fumigation in churches, sandal wood fumigation in zoro-astrians temples, will deliver the disinfectants in aerosol form which kills the pathogenic organ-isms present in the environment thus preventing the epidemics which are caused by variousorganisms. So the awareness of this technique among the common man can be an effective andeconomical preventive public health measure.

A total of 30 patients were divided into 2 groups. In Group A, l5 patients were giventhe drug ryKR) and 15 patients were administered placebo. Patients having good glycemiccontrol and with normal bio-chemical parameters were included in the study. Patients in GroupA receivedVKR in the dose of L25 mg twice daily with warm water for 90 days while patientsin Group B received Placebo in the same dose and for the same period. Subjects in both thegroups A and B were evaluated clinically once after every 15 days while Diabetes profile es-timation was done after every 30 days. Complete ophthalmic examination including Fundusphotographs were done at the beginning and at dre end of 90 days of the consumption of thetrial drug/placebo. All basic bio-chemical parameters were done initially and at the end of thestudy to evaluate the safety.Result: Of the 15 patients receivingVKR (Group A) 4 patients (26.67%) patienti showedno change in the status of Retina while I patient (6.67%) showed deterioration. 10 patients(66.67%) in this group showed improvement in the vision and Retina images ranging from mar-ginal changes to highly significant improvement.In the placebo Group B, 12 patients (80%) showed no change in vision and Retina images while3 patients (20%) showed deterioration. fllle measurement of improvement or deterioration wasdone by gradation of Diabetic retinopathy from the Fundus Photographs. In both groups therewas no significant change in the blood bio-chemical parameters thereby ensuring safetv of thetrial drug.Conclusion: Vasant Kusumakar Ras is effective in the management of Diabetic Retinopathyand is safe in dose of 125 mg twice daily. r t:t2:tA study of effect of neem oil on clinical signs of canine atopyShraddha JoshiPurpose: Due to growing nuclear nature of urban families, pets like dogs are becoming popularcompanions.

Method: sre collaborated with Sanskrit scholars at Jawaharlal Nehru University, and identi- fied an Ayurveda text, Rasayanasara, for translation. After translation, the chemicai processes described were presented to chemists at the University of Massachusetts Dart-mouth. Rajat bhasma were obtained from two commercial sources in India, and their chemical analysis was carried out Biological function of the bhasma was also examined with single layer cell culture to examine if the bhasma can disrupt the tight junctions between the cells. Result:The Rasayanasara text describes the preparation of bhasma in extensive details.The Ra- jat bhasma obtained from the commercial source was subjected to chemical elemental analysis which showed the presence of following element for the Rajat Bhasma: C l.6go/o,H = 0.56o/o, N = 028%,5 = 14.41%o,Ag = 6584yo, Hg = 1458 ppm.These results suggest that = there are other elements involved, as the quantities of elements present is still 20% short.The results were similar for the two commercial Rajat bhasma products. Scanning electron microscopy analysis of the bhasma showed particles as small as I micrometer. There were significant differences inthe size and shape of the particles. The bhasma particles have been sorted for homogeneity andare being examined for their activity on the tight junctions of the human bronchial epithelialcells for assisting in the translocation of the small organic molecules.Conclusion: Methods described in ancient texts appear to produce reproducible products evenwhen they are prepared by different manufact,r..rr. The particles obtained border with nanoparticles in size.The preparation chemistry of bhasma particles is not yet clear, and needs fur-ther examination.126 ABSTRACTS . 5th World Ayurveda Congress and Arogya Expo 2012

Oral PresentationI t:lB!|Herbal drying: a novel quality assurance practiceRajesh PrabhakaranPurpose: Collecting and drying the herbs in available season and storage is the inevitable partof the industry to cater the need of customers. Different methods of drying are adopted inindustries like drying in direct sunlight, shade dr-ving, electric drying, and steam drying etc.Though shade drying is considered as the best, in large scale it will hinder the supply chain.Pharmaceutical modifications of traditional procedures had direct impact over the quality ofmedicine, hence to standardise the product from grass root level and to overcome the qualityvariation by different types of drying; our team developed a proxy for shade drying in collabora-tion with Agricultural University, Coimbatore named as Solar Tunnel. This Paper aims at thecomparative study of sample dried by shade drying, sun drying and by using SolarTunnel.Method: Herbs collected by Good Collection Practice from own organic farm were purifiedby Standard Operating Procedure, disinfected by approved disinfectant and the cleaned herbswere divided into three equal parts and_each sample dried in shade, sun and by using solar tun-nel respectively. After drying, the samples were compared based on qualiry drying duration andmanpower.Result: It was observed that the sample dried by using solar tunnel dries quickly, retains actualcolour and active components when compared to sun drying. The sample dried un-der shaderetains colour and active components but takes more manpower and duration.Conclusion: It is concluded from the above study that solar tunnel drying method is com-para-tively better for herbal industries in large scale without modifications of traditional procedures.l1405Role of SpatialTechnologies in Public Health care AyurvedaAvijit Jhat Ayurzteda Medical Officer (Chhanisgarh Govt), specialized therapy center, CHC, Magarlod Distt. DhThe great potential of spatial technologies-Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remotesensing (RS)- to benefit the public health care is just now beginning to be realised. This is animportant new area of research that is hybrid between geography and medicine dealing withthe geographic aspects of health and health care. Medical Geography or Health Geography areother terms for this discipline. It studies the effect of locale and climate upon health. It aimsto improve understanding of various factors which affects the health of population and henceindividuals.This area studies human ecology and health on the surface of the earth, with an analytical studyof the world patterns of disease distribution and their culturaVenvironmental interactions, aswell as alterations of disease patterns because of developments in various cul-tures. Clinical andadministrative information can be disseminated in a visual and geo-graphic manner. This healthdata can be easily accessed using an intranet or the internet.Spatial technology has continued to be used in public health for epidemiological studies since1854. By uacking the sources of disease and the movements of contagious, agencies can respondmore effectively to outbreaks of disease by identifuing at-risk populations and targeting interven-tion.

Most of the chikunguniya patients received Rasnashuntyadi kadha, Godanthi Bhasma,Tab. Amritha Guggulu, Agnithunti vati and Dhanyaka ushnodaka. Most of the patients showed improvementin 24 hrs after the administration of drugs. Temperature came to normal in 36 hrs. Pain and tenderness in joints came down gradually in 48 hrs. Even though the morbidity of the disease subsides drastically, the arthritis and the joint stiffness continue to bother them to some extend for 4 to 6 weeks and need palliative treatment for 2 months. Chikunguniya being a viral disease lacks effective treatment in conventional system of medicine. The Ayurvedic approach towards it is as Vathika Jwara and Amavatha. The treatment principle of jwaraghna, amavathahara, deepana, pachana and shodhana works effectively in relieving clinical symptoms. 130 ABSTRACTS . 5th World Ayurveda Congress and Arogya Expo 2012

Sri Lan,2Senior lecturer, GampahalVickramarachchi Ayuroeda Institute, Unhtersitg oJ kelaniya,Yakkala, SrAbout one third of all infertility is attributable to a female factor. It is timely that serious studieson female infertility be carried out.The present study on the relationship between Rakthaheena-tava (Anaemia) and female infertility is done from the Ayurvedic point of view. Among manyfacrors causing infertility Rakthaheenatava (Anaemia) occupies an im-portant place. For theabove study a random sample of 40 femal e (20-40 years) with children after one year of mar-riage were selected. Data was collected from relevant clinical test and questionnaires as well asinterviews. Many aspects such as age, duration of the mar-riage life, job index, food, monthlymenstrual cycle and menstrual discharge quantities, physiological factors, education level andeconomic state were taken in to consideration. Apart from these, data from clinical test wereutilised. It was well revealed that 75% of the sample suffered from Rakthaheenatava (Anaemia).Thus it was concluded that Rakthaheenatava (Anaemia) has exerted a significant effect on theincidence of infertility. In addition many factors contributing to Rakthaheenatava (Anemia)were revealed. Among them the main causal factor seems to be inadequate nutrition. It alsocould be concluded that exces-sive menstrual discharge, mental condition, low economic leveland poor education were contributory factors.I l,l0l!Development and standardization of Dhanvantari personality inven-tory (DPl)VaidyaVt1 RMq Sushrutha ayuntedic medical college €t hospital, BangaloreAyurveda emphasizes analysis of Prakiti state before the evaluation of diseased condition.This isbecause, if we know the normal physiological state of the body it is very easy to guide the patientto avoid sickness and possible derangements and one can also promote ones positive health byadvising proper and suitable way of life and food habits for particular seasons.The present studywas designed to assess the prakiti of a person with respect to ahara, vihara and vichaara andwith respect to physical features of the body.The questionnaire and the checklist were developedaccording to the dyurvedic scriptures and were studied on school students between 10 to 17years of age of both the sexes.

The drug in use may be an alcoholic beverage or a non-alcoholic one. An addict suffers from "chronic behayioral disease" that manifests with s]rynptoms like nausea, sweating, anxiety and an intense craving for drug consumption. De-addiction of alcoholic and non-alcoholic addicts is the need of the hour with absti-nence as the key word.The crux of the problem however, is the fact that a majority of ad-dicts are unable to cope with the physical and psychological symptoms they experience during withdrawal. This inabiliry may be attributed not only to physical dependence but also to their hina manobala and hence needs to be treated judiciously.

The foremost reason for this is its non-availability inthe market. The gastric ulcers and colic pains are usually co-related with the annadrava shoolaand udara shoola respectively. Taking this fact into account, the indications (shoolam ashtavidham hanthi - alleviates eight types of shoola) of shanka dravaka explained in the classics,and also to find a potent, safety, efficacious and better medicine affordable by all class of peoplefor a this common illness (annadrava and udara shoola), this research work has been planned.Hence an attempt is made in this study to assess spasmolytic effect of shankha draavaka throughselected animal model studies.The results suggested that the test drug possess direct spasmolytic, anti-muscarinic (antagonismcould be competitive antagonism) and anti-histaminic activity as well.

These are lesser known plants in these texts having limited mention. The drugswith obscure identity worth mentioning are Mayurasikha, Bilvaparni and Airavata. An effortwas made to solve the controversial status of these drugs taking the help of our large Ayurvedicliterature sources. Also an attempt was made to describe the drug etymologically (Etymology=The origin of a word and the historical development of its meaning), which can be made usefulfor the identification of its source.Literature inAyurveda, in general can be grouped into ancient, medieval and modern, ac-cord-ing to the period in which they were written. Etymological descriptions of names are mostlyconfined to medieval books like Amarakosa and Sabdakalpadruma.These classics describe howthe plant has derived irs name and these in fact throw light on its peculiar character (morpho-logical or medicinal properties). So deriving a name etymologically is worth a try in solving theidentity of Ay:rvedic drugs. Apart from its etymological deriva-tion Ayurvedic literature refer-ences, pharmacognosy, phytochemical and pharmacological aspects were brought into consid-eration in the final resolution of drug identity. r t 50{lMolecular characterisation of Kantakari, Brihati and their substitutes/adulterants and identification of market samples through RAPD Saba lrshad Introductior,, iD".h-oola, an important Ayurvedic formulation consists of ten root drugs which is classically divided into two groups namely Brihat Panchmool and ila$u Pan- chmool.There is great conrroversy in identity and availability of the genuine drug or plant parts of Dashmooladravya (raw drugs).In majoriry of cases the stem and aerial parts are available as drugs. Solanum ind.icum Linn. (Brihati) and S. xanthocarpum Schard. and Wendl. (Kanthkari) of Solanaceae family are the two ingredients of Laghupanchmool for post-natal care. S. aergin ianum L. and S. angugi Lam. are market adulterants used commonly in the place of genuine S. indicum and S. xanthocarpum.The present study was performed to get the molecular signature of authenticated samples of four species of Solanum through RandomlyAmplified Polymorphic DNA-Polymerase Chain Reaction (RAPD-PCR). Method: Total genomic DNA was isolated from (50 mg) of dried plant powder following the modified CTAB method. RAPD amplification reaction was performed according tofilliam et al 1990. Result and Discussion: Molecular characterisation of four species of Solanum and authen- tica-tion of four market samples on genetic level have been done by utilising the 40 random primers.

The similarity and UPGMA analysisclearly enabled the discrimination between four species of Solanum as they fall in separare clus-ter on UPGMA dendrogram. The market samples, two each of Brihati (from Chitrakoot andTrivandrum) and Kanthkari (Ramnagar and Ranchi) were found to be genuine on the basis oftheir similarity index.Conclusion (s): The results showed that RAPD technique gives the reproducible results evenfor dry and aged samples and capable to identifii the genuine herbal drugs and to check theadulterant/substitute of ASU drugs.t I rTO$Standardisation of an Ayurvedic formulation - Kalyanavaleha andestimation of curcumin using HPTLCSayyada KhatoonIntroduction: Standardisation of compound Ayurvedic formulation is essential for estab-lish-ing the authenticity, quality and efficacy of Ayurvedic medicines and finished herbal products.Despite various efforts by ufHO, there is lack of supportirlg studies regarding the scientificevaluation of formulation and preparation related parameters. Kalyanavleha, used in aphasiaand hoarseness, contains eight ingredients viz. Curcuma longa, Apium leptophyllum, Zingiber of-fi.cinale, Cuminum cyminum, Glycyrrhiza glabra, Saussurea laBpa, Acorus calamus and Hper longum. Quality control markers using analytical tools are required for this polyherbal formulation.Methodology:To achieve the desired aim SOP of Kalyanavleha was developed and three batch-es were prepared in the laboratory as per AFI. Standard pharmacopoeial methods for mac-ro-microscopic evaluation, physico-chemical parameters were used for quality evaluation andcurcumin.was estimated using HPTLC densitometric scanning withSfincats 3.2.L software.Results: The results of the microscopical examination indicated that the characteristics of alleight herbal ingredients were present in all three batches of Kalyanavleha. The physicochemicalevaluation showed the moisture content ranges 4.10-4.65; alcohol, water and hexane soluble ex-tracts 46.67-50.00, LL.25-15.95 and 50.12-53.50 percent respectively. Likewise, total ash, acidinsoluble ash and sulphated ash were quantified 9.78-ll.56, 1.69-1.84 and 14.L-14.9 percentrespectively.TLC of hexane and chloroform fractions showed six and seven bands respectivelyunder UV 366 nm which were present in more than one ingredient. The components of Czr-cuma longa were found more prominent in TLC fingerprint. $ence, Curcumin was evaluatedqualitatively and quantitatively as the biomarker of Kalyanavleha and it was estimated 0.25-0.26% in the formulation. Conclusion(s): The microscopic characters, physicochemical parameters andTLC profiles to-gether may be used as a valuable analytical tool in the routine standardisation and to check thetatch to batch consistency of compound herbal formulation Kalyanavleha.

The 60% of respon-dents have used medicinal plants for themselves, while 36% use them few times a year or regu-larly. It was observed that it in the medical population investigated, 45yo of the medical doctorshave used medicinal plants for therapeutic purposes. 43Yo of doctors referred therapeutic utilityin the use with their patients, while only 4%o found side effects. The use with patients is closelyrelated to personal use. There is an important lack of knowledge of medicinal plants availablelocally, since rwo thirds of the doctors can not appoint regional plants. Only 7 % of the surveyedphysicians known plants which are not only available, but grow in the region itself .32Yo of phy-sicians reported having treated patients poisoned with medicinal plants. In the vast majority ofthese poisonings, the situations were caused by self-medication or were administrated by otherswithout proper uaining. ln 7oh of c6ses of poisoning, the doctors were responsible, includingtwo cases in which the respondents themselves were the cause of the adverse effect.The medicaldoctors pinpointed the difficulties for the use of medicinal plants as a therapeutic tool Almost80% of the professionals reported the lack of adequate information at the University, both atthe undergraduate and postgraduate level. The lack of reliable products with appropriate infor-mation on the clinical and toxicological data is marked by almost two-thirds of physicians. Theabsence of standardised products along with mistrust on the quality trials to them is marked byabout 50% of the participants Awareness of the therapeutic use of medicinal plants along withthe high level of ignorance on the subject, explains that nearly three out of four respondentsexpressed interest in receiving more information about medicinal plants.

The references regarding dushivisha point out that it can generate similar harmful effectsas that of hypersensitivity reactions. Acharya Chakrapani in his commentary says that, Kalanta-raprakopi visham dushivisham which indicates the latent or subclinical allergy. The peculiarityof dushivisha is that it remains latent in dhatus (tissues) and on vitiation it produces hazardousconsequences on rhe body. Nija gara visha which are produced by viruddhahara (unwholesomesub) and agnim and yakara nidana acts as antigens. The toxic effects of these antigens are notcompletely neutralized by the antibody due to avyadhisahatva, instead get sensitized and bindto the mast cells.This improperly neutralized visha (toxins) when comes with antigenproduces injurious consequences in the sensitized host. The antigen antibody rnediated abnor-mal immune response can be correlated with pathological and clinical features of dhatugatavisha or dushivisha in Ayurveda.Method: Assuming the role of dushivisha in allergic bronchial asthma, the clinical trial was car-ried out on 29 r"gi*r.r"t-patients with allergic bronchial asthma and randomly divided into AB, C groups respectively. i0 patients of Group A were given shirisha panchanga ghana 1 BD g g at bed timewith iarm *","i, 9 patierrts of Group B were given dushivishari virechaka yoga 5with warm water and 10 patients of Group C were given both shirisha panchanga ghanafuithJushivishari virechaka yoga.Result: On statistical analysis, the data showed significant improvement in clinical manifesta-tion and laboratory investigations after therapy in group C. There is significant decrease in IgE level in group c. which confirms the role of dushivisha in Allergic bronchial asthma.Conclusion: Treatment regimen containing the dravyas havingVishghna as well as shwasaghnaproperty gave better results in Bronchial asthma. root4A comparative pharmacologica! study on substitute itana (Themedatriandra Forssk.)

According to Ayurveda the basic constiruents of living body are Dosha,Dhatu and Mala. Dhatus are seven in which Asthidhatu is kathinatam. Nourishment of dhatudepends upon the quality of food. According to Acharya Charaka miik is Brumhana and Sand-hankar. Mahish dugdha (Buffalo miik) is guru and it has the predominance of Aap and Parthivamahabhuta and Asthi has also the predominance of guru guna and Prithvi mahabhuta.Method: Randomly selected 60 subjects ofAsthidhatukshaya were diagnosed byTrividha Parik-sha Darshana, Sparshana and Prashana.

Guruwadi twen-ry Gunas are also helpful in Chikitsa. Out of these 20 Gunas: Guru, Laghu, Shita,IJshna, Ruk-sha and Snigdha are more dominant in 6 Rasas; and these 6 Rasas plays an important role inChikitsa and maintenance of Prakruti. Prakruti is formed by dominance of Dosha Gunas anddiet taken by mother and her activity. The diet is composed of 6 types of Rasadravyas. The 6Rasas are formed from the above 6 Gunas. Hence the Lakshanas due to these 6 Gunas has beengiven more importance in the assessment of Prakruti by gradation method. Rasa GunaI Madhura Snigdha + Shita * Guru2 Amla Snigdha * Ushna + Guru3 Lavana Snigdha + Ushna * Guru4 Katu Ruksha + IJshna + Laghu5 Tikta Ruksha + Shita + Laghu6 Kashaya Ruksha+Shita+LaghuGradation method:Lakshanas of the Prakruti were classified into two groups:.1. Lakshana due above six Gunas were given 2 marks2. Lakshana due to all other Gunas were given I mark.Result: InVata Prakruti: Lakshanas due to Ruksha, Laghu, and Shita Gunas were given 2 marksand others were given 1 mark. In Pitta Prakruti: Lakshanas due to lJshna, Laghu and KatuGunas were given 2 marks and others were given I mark. In Kapha Prakruti: Lakshanas due toSnigdha, Shita, and Guru Gunas were given 2marks and others were given 1 mark.Conclusion: By Gradation method, Prakruti is assessed not only by Dosha but predominanceof Gunas of an Individual Dosha. It is useful if there is predominance of same Dosha by percent-age method. This helps to study Prakruti statistically. Organized by World Ayurveda Foundation and Government of Madhya Pradesh .

Similarly there was excellent relief among patients of group A with regard to Dourbalya,angamarda, alasya, aruchi etc following trial. The data thus obtained among patients of groupA and group B leads one to the interpretation that the trial employed for patients of group A ismuch superior in comparison to group B.Conclusion: Conclusions of a clinical study is the final result of painstaking effort of selectionof patirrrts, their systematic classification, collection of data, tabulation of data, statistical analy-sis of data, and logical interpretation of the statistically analysed result. It can also be concludedthat stress is an important causative factor in causingAsrigdara since 60% of the patients wereunder mental stress. Statistical analysis of the data obtained leads to the conclusion thatVire-chana along with pathya aahara vihaara is highly effective in Asrigdara. It can also be concludedthat Pathya aahara and vihaara (Group B) alone doesnt produce results comparable to Pathyaaahara vihaara along with virechana (Group A).too88lmmunological and virological effect of amrita tablet in human im-munodeficiency virus positive patientsBrajeshwar MishraPurpose: To assess the safety and efficacy ofAmrita tablets in human immunodeficiency viruspositive patients.Method: The randomized double blind placebo controlled trial carried out 40 HfV positive pa-tients at Ayurvedic Drug Research Institute Motihari Bihar, with permission from InstitutionalEthic Committee for achieve the purpose.

Road, Kolkata - 700 019,lVest BengalPurpose: Withania somnifera (L) Dunal is a perennial shrub from the Solanaceae family andwell known medicinal plant. Traditionally it is known as Aswgaandha. The root extract has beentraditionally used as a tonic and as a sedative but recent research shows that the leaf extract con-tainsrilTithanolides which have been found to have regenerative properties on brain cell synapsesin human cell lines in laboratory studies. Withania somnifera seeds are harvested in the monthof March April. Seed storage under ambient conditions is a very problematic due to prevailinghigh humidity and atmospheric temperature. If seeds stored under uncontrolled conditions, theviability may go down below ten percent after monsoon. So to maintain the vigour and viabilityof lVithania somnifera seed during storage was essential for ensuring better crop stand.Method: lVithania somnifera seed were dry dressed with finely powdered pharmaceutical formu-lations (aspirin, active ingredient ortho acetylesalicylic acid @ 100 mg / kg of seed; celin, activeingredient ascorbic acid @ 500 mg / kg of seed), chemicals (common bleaching powder, activeingredient calcium hypochlorite @ 2 g / kg of seed) and crude plant materials (finely powdereddried fruit of Capsicum frutescens (red chilli powder) and Catharanthus roseous leaf powder @ 2g / kg of seed). After treatments germination test were carried out by standards germination testmethod and seed vigour also studied by the measurement of root and shoot length.Result: Seed deterioration was very fast after monsoon months in uncontrolled storage. Moreor less all dry dressing treatments significantly slowed down seed deterioration in comparison tountreated control under subsequent storage conditions.Conclusion: The result indicates that pre storage dry dressing treatments of Withania somniferaseed with aspirin and red chilli powdep are suggested for the maintenance of seed viability dur-ing storage period and they are inexpensive.Key words: Aswagandha, Seed treatment,Viability and vigourtol4t)Controlled clinical evaluation of effect of mamajjaka (EnicostemmaIittoralel in sthula madhumeha w.r.t.type 2 diabetes mellitusAmit NampalliwarPurpose: Now a day changes in the life style and more use of westernizes lifestyle like fastfood, drinks, high calories diets which have ill effect our body.

Internal and external allergens such as envi-ronmental change, pollutants and unsuitable foods are believed to be the predisposing factorsrvhich sensitize the immune system of the body and trigger production of the antibody Immuno-globulin E. These result in sneezing, running nose, irritation of eyes, inflammation of bronchialrnucosa and wheezing. Ayurvedic formulations such as Dasamoolakatuthrayam kwatha, Vyo-shadi vatakam, Swasanandam gutika and Swasa kalpa are widely used by Ayurvedic physiciansand clinically proven to have anti allergic effect.They relieve bronco spasm airway block, sneez-ing and running nose. Current Study was aimed at proving the efficacy of these formulations inAllergic Asthma.Method: Patients diagnosed with Allergic Asthma were chosen for clinical study. A total of 38patients of either sex ranging from the age of 4 to 48 were selected for the study. All the patientswere tested for their blood level TIgE. Most of them were found to have elevated blood levelTIgE. Every patient was given Dasamoolakatuthrayam kwatha, Vyoshadi vatakam Swasanan-dam gutika and Swasa kalpa orally for 6-8 weeks and the progress was observed. The observa-tions were recorded based on subjective and objective methods.Result: It was construed from the results that the trial medicines had significant anti allergic,expecrorant, bronco dilatation and overall reduction in the symptoms of Allergic Asthma in theanalyzed patients. By the end of 8 weeks 16 out of 38 patients had significant recovery from thesymptoms, l8 had good control of the ailment while the rest 4 displayed poor progress.Conclusion:The study vividty fortified the therapeutic efficacy of the trial drugs in the manage-menr of Allergic Asthma.

Treatment of NAFLD typically focused on the management of associated con-ditions which may be beneficial but limit their uses due to side effects. Therefore there is needro evaluare herbal formulations for the treatment of NAFLD.The objective of present study wasto evaluate the effect of MA 579 (Livomap) in patients with NAFLD.Method: Fifry eight patients with NAFI-D, proven on ultrasonography with"/without persistentelevation of serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or aspartate aminotransferase (AST) andwith negative viral markers were enrolled. Patients received one month of placebo, diet andexercise advise and were subsequently randomized to receive either MA579 or Placebo (2 tabBD) for 4 months. Patients were followed up every month forclinical evaluation. Assessmentsof all biochemical investigations were done at baseline. Liver function test, S.insulin, lipid profileperformed at baseline (day I , day 60 and at the completion of study (day I 20). Uluasonographyperformed at baseline (day l)and(day 120).Result: Fifr5r out of 58 patients completed the study. Twenty six patients were on MA 579and 24 patients received Placebo. After 16 weeks, significant reduction in hepatic steatosis de-termined on ultrasonography was observed in group MA 579 (p<0.01). Greater reduction intriglycerides was also observed in the MA 579 group as compared to placebo (p=0.02). No ef-fect was observed in plasma transaminases levels in both groups. Significant reduction in painin abdomen was also observed in medicine group (p<0.01) as compared to placebo group. Noside effects were observed so far.Conclusion: MA 579 decreased triglyceride levels and hepatic steatosis significantly. It may bebeneficial for NAFLD patients, which need to be tested in larger sample size. Organized by World Ayurveda Foundation and Government of Madhya Pradesh . ABSTRACTS 165

H. T].Purpose: Viruddha Ahar has been mentioned as one of the important and basic etiologicalfactor in causation of diseases. There are various combination mentioned in Ayurvedic textswhich are said to have an antagonistic effect on dhatus. Ayurvedic literature as well as Puranashave revealed that Sarpi (Ghee) and Madhu (Honey) if given in combination of equal quantityproduces harmful effects just like poison. Thus above said combination was selected for experi-mental study to explore the rationalities, justi$ring both by the weight and combination.Method: An experimental study was conducted on mice to evaluate the effect of combination ofGhee and Honey. Thirty two mice were taken and randomly allocated into four groups. GroupI was served as control whereas Group II (trial) were given Ghee and Honey in equal quantitydaily. Group III mice were given Sarpi (Ghee) and Madhu (Honey) in 3:1 proportion while inGroup IV mice, Sarpi and Madhu were given in 7:3 proportion. Total duration of study wasthree months. Assessment was done on the basis of different parameters like observation of gen-eral signs, weight certain haematological and histopathological examination.Result: Intake of Ghee and Honey in different proportion showed harmful effects on mice likeirritabiliry dullness, lethargy, weight loss and skin manifestations with hair loss. In haemato-logical examination SGOT and SGPT were found increased as compared to control group. Onhistopathological examination liver tissue showed congestion, focal necrosis, fatty infiltration,ballooning and degeneration in all trial groups. And in skin markedly decreased pilosebaceousunit was observed.Conclusion: Administration of Ghee and Honey (Viruddha ahara) in different proportion pro-duces adverse effects on mice. This proves the textual contraindiction of combination of Gheeand Honey (Viruddha ahara).176 ABSTRACTS . 5thWorl.dAyurvedaCongressandArogya Expo2O12
