ABSTRACT

Objective: The present study is to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of the combination of Siddha drugs (Seenthil chooranam and Serankottai nei) in the treatment of Vali Azhal Keel Vayu. Methods: The study was carried out in the Out-Patient Department(OPD) and In-Patient Department(IPD) of the Ayothidoss Pandithar Hospital, National Institute of Siddha as an open labelled pilot study. In a study period of 12 months, 20 patients of either sex were selected for a clinical trial of 48 days. 10ml of Merugulli thylam was taken orally with hot milk as a purgative medicine on the first day of treatment followed by two days of medicated rest. 2gm of Seenthil chooranam with lukewarm water and 10 drops of Serankottai nei with hot milk were taken orally, twice daily for 45 days. The clinical effectiveness of the trial drugs was assessed by using DAS28 score before and after the treatment. Result and Discussion: Out of 20 patients, 85% of the patients showed a significant reduction in joint pain and swelling and have a good improvement in their joint movements. The data were analyzed statistically and the result showed significant (p<0.05) improvement in the treatment of Vali Azhal Keel Vayu.
