Abstract
The prospective of ayurvedic philosophy and medicines needs to be recognized and converted into real life treatment prototype. This study describes an inclusive therapeutic approach used in ayurveda and modern medicine to treat cancer. Semecarpus anacardium (SA) popularly known as ? Ardha Vaidya ? has been used in folklore for the treatment of a wide range of diseases. Extracts (hydro-alcoholic and oil) of SA were evaluated for their anticancer activity against Ehrlich ascites carcinoma (EAC) in nude mice. Extracts and standard drug (cyclophosphamide) at a dose of 20 mg/kg body weight were administered orally and continued for 10 consecutive days. The anticancer activity of SA was examined by determining the tumor area, tumor volume and tumor histology in experimental animal models. Both these extracts showed remarkable results in controlling the tumor in EAC bearing nude mice compared to the standard drug cyclophosphamide. Thus, the present study revealed that SA showed anticancer activity in the tested animal models. The data from the study also supports the ayurvedic ' Rasayana ' concept of immune-modulation and healing. We need to interpret logic of ayurveda when, adopting modern science tools in drug development and validation and much research is required. Rationalization of ayurvedic medicines using the latter approach may lead to an evidence based ayurveda - modern medicine interface. Also, in pursuit of finding better treatment solutions, we ought to step beyond the realm of only drugs and attempt validation of comprehensive specific treatment package as per classical ayurveda.
