AIIA and IIT Delhi jointly work on various Ayurvedic formulations

By NS Desk | Ayurveda News | Posted on :   05-Jan-2021

The All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA) here and the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) have joined hands to work on seven collaborative projects including the development of herbal wound dressing, a fumigation device for aiding wound healing, and an herbal formulation to reduce the harmful effects of reusing cooking oil.

"The amalgamation of traditional knowledge with technology is expected to benefit society at large by offering better health care options. Validation of the traditional knowledge systems is the key, in order to make these forms of medicine more widely acceptable worldwide," IIT Delhi Director V Ramgopal Rao said.

These Projects Include

i) Effect of the six Ayurvedic rasas (tastes) on gastrointestinal secretions.

ii) Develop herbal formulations that would reduce the harmful effects of reusing cooking oil.

iii) Develop a biodegradable, herbal wound dressing.

iv) Study the effects of the ‘Brahmari pranayama’ on the nervous system.

v) Analyze the impacts of bhasmas (ashes) on proteins implicated in neurodegenerative diseases.

vi) Develop a ‘dhoopan-yantra’ - a fumigation device for aiding wound healing.

vii) Early cancer detection and assessment of breast cancer response to Ayurvedic drugs.

The projects are tenable for two years, at the end of which a better understanding is likely to emerge in the above areas.

"Both the institutions aim to develop a deeper understanding of the fundamental principles of Ayurvedic diagnosis and treatment of diseases, to develop innovative diagnostic tools and equipment for various Ayurvedic procedures. Ayurveda is one of the world's oldest known medical systems, which originated in India. Over the past decade, there has been a renewed interest in the validation of Ayurveda principles," said Tanuja Nesari, Director, AIIA. PTI
