Chemistry of Kupipakwa Rasayanas A Review Prasanta Kumar Sarkar, Neky J. Mehta, P. K. Prajapati.Depart of Rasashastra and Bhaishajya Kalpana including Drug Research, I. P. G.T. & R. A., Gujarat Ayurved University, Jamnagar- 361008Abstract: Kupipakwa Rasayanas are very popular and commonly prescribed preparations among the Ayurvedic physicians, and are looked upon as panacea. These are prepared in a specially designed glass bottle by gradual heating immersion in sand bath (Valuka Yantra). Particular chemical processes are involved in these preparations which also bear testimony to the great chemical knowledge prevailing in ancient India. In the present review, the probable chemistry of Kupipakwa Rasayanas has been discussed.Ancient Science of Life Vol: No.XXVII (4) April, May, June 2008

Evaluation of lauha bhasma on classical analytical parameters A pilot studyPrasanta Kumar Sarkar, A. K. Choudhary, Dr. P. K. PrajapatiDepartment of Rasashastra and Bhaishajya Kalpana including Drug Research I.P.G.T. & R.A., Gujarat Ayurved University, Jamnagar.ABSTRACT: Lauha Bhasma is the mostwidely used Bhasma preparation in therapeutics, but till date the temperature pattern to prepare Lauha Bhasma in electric muffle furnace is not fixed. So in this pilot study an attempt has been made to confirm the appropriate temperature pattern to prepare Lauha Bhasma. And emphasis has been given to evaluate this prepared Lauha Bhasma on classical analytical parameter, which reflects the physical and chemical properties of the Bhasma.Ancient Science of Life Vol: No XVII (3) January, February, March 2008

Pharmacological validation of Kantha chendooram for antiulcer activity in modified pylorus ligated (shay) rat modelR. Vadivelan*, K. Elango, B. Suresh, B. R. Ramesh, S. Bhadra, A.Raghuram and R.SampathkumarDepartment of Pharmacology, J.S.S. College of Pharmacy, Ooty 643 001., Govt. Siddha Medical College,Palayamkottai, Tirunelveli-627002ABSTRACT: The use of metals and minerals is predominant in siddha system of medicine. As per siddha concept, peptic ulcer is known as Valigunmam, the basic abnormality appears to be the derangement of metabolism in the stomach and duodenum resulting in malfunctioning of the secretory process of gastric mucosa. Chendooram is a group of siddha drugs which is used for anemia, obesity, rheumatic diseases; abdominal tumours etc.During the present study standardized Kantha chendooram was selected and evaluated for its anti-ulcer activity, which could not be attempted by researchers earlier.Ancient Science of Life Vol:No. XXVII (2) October, November, December 2007

AMELIORATION OF MERCURIC CHLORIDE INDUCED NEPHROTOXICITY AND OXIDATIVE STRESS BY GARLIC EXTRACTN. ABIRAMI, R. JAGADEESWARIPG and Research Department of Biochemistry, Dr. N.G.P. Arts and Science College, Kovai Medical Centre for Research and Education Trust, Coimbatore -641 035, Tamilnadu, India.ABSTRACT: Effect of Garlic against mercuric chloride induced toxicity is albino rats was studied. Oral administration of mercuric chloride (100mg/kg/p.0) for 30 days resulted in significant. Increased significant results in LPO Basal level and LPO FeSO4 induced and decreased significant result in GSH and Vit C. When compared to the normal control. Simultaneous administration of Garlic along with Mercuric chloride. Produced a well pronounced neproprotective effect against mercuric chloride toxicity in rats by restoring the normal levels of these biochemical parameters.Ancient Science of Life Vol: XXVI July, August, September, October, November, December 2006

STANDARDIZATION OF KANTHA CHENDOORAMK. ELANGO*, B. SURESH, B. R. RAMESH, R. VADIVELAN AND SAMPATHKUMARDepartment of Pharmacology, J.S.S. College of Pharmacy, Ooty 643 001., Govt. Siddha Medical College, Palayamkottai, Tirunelveli-627002ABSTRACT:Siddha is a traditional medical system of India. According to siddha system of medicine, chendooram is a red colour powder generally made of metallic compounds. Mercury is used in the form of rasa chendooram (red edients, viz. 1. Purified Lode Stone, 2. Purified Sulphur, 3. Leadoxide of mercury). This paper deals with the standardization of Kantha chendooram. It is a Siddha preparation of 8 ingr wort root powder, 4. Eclipta juice, 5. Lime juice, 6. Milk, 7. Egg albumin, 8. Mudar Latex. In this study an attempt was made to standardize Kantha chendooram which could not be attempted by researchers earlier. Standardization of Kantha chendooram was in terms of its organoleptic characters, qualitative identification of phytochemical constituents, metallic quantification and in terms of pharmacognostical standardization.Ancient Science of Life Vol: XXVI (1 & 2) July, August, September, October, November, December 2006

COMPARATIVE STUDY OF SOME COMMERCIAL SAMPLES OF NAGA BHASMAMrudula Wadekarv , Viswas Gogte, Prasad Khandagale and Asmita Prabhunev, Division of Biochemical Sciences, National Chemical Labortary, PUNE 411008, Deccan College, Deemed University, Pune-411006 Loctite, Jejuri-412303ABSTRACT: Naga bhasma is one of those reputed ayurvedic bhasmas which are claimed to possess some extraordinary medical properties. However, identification of a genuine sample of naga bhasma is a challenging problem. Because at present naga bhasma is manufactured by different ayurvedic pharmacies, by following different methods, these products are not standardised either from chemical and structural point of view. Therefore, comparative study of these samples using modern analytical techniques is important and necessary to understand their current status. In this communication, such study of naga bhasma from chemical and structural point of view is reported by using XRD, IR and UV spectroscopy and thermogravimetry.Ancient science of life Vol : XXIII (4) April, May, June 2004

SHILAJIT: EVALUTION OF ITS EFFECTS ON BLOOD CHEMISTRY OF NORMAL HUMAN SUBJECTSPravenn Sharma, Jagrati Jha1, V. Shrinivas, L.K. Dwivedi, P. Suresh2 and M. Sinha1Department of Biochemistry, SMS Medical College, Jaipur 302 004, National Institute of Ayurveda, Jaipur 302 004.ABSTRACT: The effect of Shilajit on blood chemistry was studied in normal human volunteers. Administration of two gms of Shilajit for 45 days did not produced any significant change in physical parameters i.e. blood pressure, pulse rate and body weight and similarly no charge was observed in hematological parameters. A signification reduction in Serum Triglycerides, Serum cholesterol with simultaneous improvement in HDL Cholesterol was seen, besides Shilajit also improved antioxidant status of volunteers. Results of study suggest hypolipidemic and strong antioxidant activity of Shilajit.Ancient Science of Life Vol : XXIII(2) October, November, December 2003

Prevention of toxic effects of mercuric chloride on Some male accessory organs in mice with a Multiherbal drug SPEMANH.S.RATHORECell Biology Unit, School of Studies in Zoology Vikram University, Ujjain 456010 (M.P) IndiaABSTRACT: Adult Swiss albino male mice exposed to mercuric chloride via drinking water at 5?g/ml for 100 days revealed significant reduction in the wet weight and severe histopathological changes in male accessory organs, poor level of serum testosterone and infertility. These effects were reduced remarkable and fertility was restored when drug (12.50 mg/mouse/day orally) was administered during mercury exposure for 100days or after Hg-exposure for next 60 days (Post therapy). Natural recovery after mercury exposure for 60 days remind ineffective. Probable action of herbal drug based on the presence of the active principles of constituents (i.e Orchis mascula, Mucuna pruriens, parmelia perlata, Argyreia speciosa, Tribulus terristris, Leptadenia reticulate, Lactuca scariola and Hygrophila spinosa) is discussed in detail.Ancient Science of Life Vol. No XX (1&2) July, August, September, October 2000
