हाल ही में दो शोध पत्र प्रस्तुत हुये । एक IJRH के जर्नल में और दूसरे pub med पर पब्लिश हुये । पहले शोध पत्र मे होम्योपैथिक मदर टिन्चर जैसे Ricinus communis (RCMT), Rauwolfia serpentina (RSMT), Bellis perennis (BPMT), Curcuma longa(CLMT), Terminalia arjuna (TAMT) and Tribulus terresteris (TTMT और दूसरे शोध पत्र मे होम्योपैथिक टिन्चर Guaiacum officinale के शोधरोधी , वेदनाहार और संधिशोधरोधी प्रभाव का अध्ययन करना था ।

दोनों ही प्रयोगों के लिये एल्बीनों चूहों का प्रयोग प्रायोगिक अध्ययन के लिये किया गया । सामान्य लक्षण विलयन में 1% कैरागीनन की 0.1 ml की मात्रा दायें पंजे मे दे कर शोध प्रेरित किया गया । सोध की मात्रा का आंकलन पंजे की सूजन के आधार पर किया गया । विस्टर एल्बीनो चूहों के प्रपद तलवे में पूर्ण फ़्रायन्ड सह औषध ( CFA ) इंजेक्शन लगाकर संधिशोध प्रेरित किया गया ।

परिणाम:

कुरकुमा लौंगा और ट्राइव्यूलस टरेसटेरिस और ग्वायकम आफ़ मातृ टिन्चर द्वारा कैरागीनन उपचारित चूहों के पाश्च पंजे के सूजन मे कमी आयी आऊ पंजे का आयतन घटा ।यह शक्तिशाली शोधरोधी सक्रियता को दर्शाता है । सभी होम्योपैथिक मातॄ टिन्चर ने चूहों में उष्ण प्रेरित तापीय वेदना में भी परिधीय वेदनाहार सक्रियता दिखाई ।

Abstract
Objectives: The objective of present preliminary study was to assess the anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-arthritic effect of some homoeopathic mother tinctures viz. Ricinus communis (RCMT), Rauwolfia serpentina (RSMT), Bellis perennis (BPMT), Curcuma longa(CLMT), Terminalia arjuna (TAMT) and Tribulus terresteris (TTMT).
Materials and Methods: Paw oedema was induced by administration of 0.1ml 1% carrageenan in normal saline into right hind paw. Degree of inflammation was evaluated according to paw swelling. Arthritis was induced by Complete Freund’s Adjuvant (CFA) injection in metatarsal footpad of Wistar albino rats.
Result: Curcuma longa and Tribulus terresteris mother tinctures reduced hind paw swelling decreased the paw volume in Carrageenan treated rats. Thus, revealed potent activity against inflammation. All homoeopathic mother tinctures showed peripheral analgesic activities in hot plate induced thermal algesia in mice.

Anti-rheumatoid and anti-oxidant activity of homeopathic Guaiacum officinale in an animal model.

Sarkar A1, Datta P1, Das AK1, Gomes A2.

Author information
Abstract
BACKGROUND:

Homeopathy is a popular form of complementary and alternative medicine. Guaiacum extract is said to be useful for pain and inflammation, but there appears to be no scientific evidence to support this.

AIMS:

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the anti-rheumatic and anti-oxidant activity of homeopathic preparations of Guaiacum officinale (Gua) on experimental animal model.

DESIGN:

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) was induced in male albino rats by Freund’s complete adjuvant (FCA) at a dose of (0.25 mg heat killed Mycobacterium tuberculosis/ml of emulsion). Gua mother tincture (MT) (prepared from the latex part of the plant) (MT), Gua 30cc and 200cc were purchased commercially from King Company, Kolkata, India. Male albino Wistar rats (130 ± 10 g) were divided into 6 groups: Sham control; Arthritis control; Standard treatment indomethacin (0.25 mg 100 g(-1) p.o. × 5 alternative days), Gua MT (1 ml kg(-1) p.o. × 5 days) treated; Gua (30c 1 ml kg(-1) p.o. × 5 days) treated; Gua (200c; 1 ml kg(-1) p.o. × 5 days) treated. Anti-rheumatic activity was examined through physical, urinary, serum parameters. All the results were expressed in terms of mean ± SEM (statistical error of mean n = 6) at each dose level. The level of significance was determined through one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), p < 0.05 was considered significant.

RESULTS:

It was observed that body weight, ankle and knee diameter, urinary parameters (hydroxyproline (OH-P), glucosamine, calcium (Ca(2)(+)), creatinine (CRE), phosphate (PO4(3)(-))), serum ACP (acid phosphatase)/ALP (alkaline phosphatase)/Ca(2+)/CRE/PO4(3-)/gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT)/Lipid peroxidation (LPO)/Glutathione (GSH)/Superoxide dismutase (SOD)/Catalase, serum GGT, serum interleukins like IL-1β/CINC-1/PGE2/TNF-α/IL-6, IL-12/IL-4/IL-6 levels were significantly affected. After treatment with Guaiacum in all 3 regimes was associated with normalization of these parameters compared to control group.

CONCLUSION:

These findings suggest that homeopathic G. officinale possesses anti-rheumatic and anti-oxidant activity in experimental animal and these activities may be more significant in higher potencies.

IHMA Fever guidelines Version1 released

image

Indian Homoeopathic Research Centre (IHRC) the research wing of Indian Homoeopathy Medical Association (IHMA) published the “Fever Guidelines” before the homeopathic community.

This is an attempt to standardize the treatment protocol for fever among Homoeopaths.The cases managed on the basis of these guide lines shall be documented for future studies.

Thus the efficacy of Homoeopathic remedies could be established in a much more scientific and systemic way.

Short term studentship in Homoeopathy program by CCRH–apply now

image

On behalf of Dr. R. K. Manchanda, Director General, Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy (CCRH), applications are invited from interested undergraduate homoeopathic students to participate in theShort Term Studentship in Homoeopathy Program (STSH 2014).

The Council has initiated the Short Term Studentship in homoeopathy Program in order to promote interest and aptitude for research among homoeopathic undergraduates.

The main objective of this program is to provide an opportunity to undergraduate homoeopathic students to familiarize themselves with research methodology and techniques by being associated for a short duration with their seniors on ongoing research program or by undertaking independent projects. This may serve as an incentive for them to take up research as a career in the future. The Institution must provide the student with all facilities for carrying out research.

The Council has decided to initiate the Short Term Studentship in homoeopathy (STSH) Program for homoeopathic undergraduate students of various medical colleges in the country by awarding limited number of studentships to deserving undergraduate students in March, 2014.

The student is required to register on CCRH website ONLINE from 20th June 2014 to 20th July 2014 and submit the application form and proposal from 21st July 2014 to 5th August 2014.

The received applications and proposals will be evaluated by the Council. Results will be announced in October 2014 and list of selected students displayed on the website. If selected, the student is expected to complete the project between October 2014 and March 2015 and submit the report before the last date of submission i.e. 20th April 2015.

The student will be awarded stipend and certificate only if his/her report is approved.

The value of the studentship will be Rs. 10,000/- only and is meant to be a stipend for the student. Cost of research must be borne by Medical College/ Institution where research is carried out.

E-HOMOEO

Repertory of &quot;sensation as if&quot;

The basis of the material was secured from three major works : Hering’s Guiding Symptoms, Clarke’s Dictionary and Allen’s Handbook. Frequent references have been made to Allen’s Encyclopædia. Other volumes less well known, and including Anshutz’s New, Old and Forgotten Remedies , have served in adding further symptoms.

Launch of CAM-QuestDatabase
The Carstens Foundation in Germany has recently launched an excellent online database of clinica lresearch in CAM. Studies in nine different therapies have been included: acupuncture, anthroposophic medicine, ayurveda, bioenergetics, herbal medicine, homeopathy, manual medicine, mind-body medicine and TCM.
The database includes a large number of German homeopathic case reports and provides the facility to perform searches by disease, therapy and study design. The ‘quick search’ function provides a synopsis of studies using the most common therapies for the most common diseases whilst the ‘expert search’ function enables a detailed, comprehensive search across the CAM therapies and full range of diseases within the database.
At present the database is available in English, French, Dutch and German, but there are plans to translate it into all European languages. It is accessible free of charge at  http://www.cam-quest.org
First Homeopathic Veterinary Database (VetCR)
The first database of clinical research in veterinary homeopathy is now accessible online. Containing all available literature on original veterinary studies it provides access to approximately 200 entries of randomised clinical trials, non-randomised clinical trials, observational studies, drug provings, case reports and case series.
Produced by the Carstens Foundation, the database is freely available at [ http://www.carstens-stiftung.de/clinresvet/index.php
