In a major boost for the application of Ayurvedic drugs in India, the nation's premier medical institution All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in collaboration with the Ministry of AYUSH completed the first phase of an herbal drug trial to treat superficial wounds, reports Indian Express.
The said drug, AYUSH C1 Oil, which is commonly used by tribal populations to treat wounds, has been tried on 30 patients who visited AIIMS. As per doctors, the results were found to be effective with zero side effects.
The drug was identified by the Ministry of AYUSH, and then trials for the same were launched in 2015-16. Now that the first phase of the trials have been completed, the AIIMS is to submit a report of the same to the Ministry of AYUSH.
The trials were conducted under the department of plastic, reconstructive and burns surgery, AIIMS. Its Dr Maneesh Singhal said, "If we measure the results of normal remedy with this herbal drug treatment, then the result of the latter is a notch better. No patient has complained of any problem.”
