Abstract
Ayurveda is a science of life, based on its basic principles, time tested and experienced through centuries. It is an evidence of experimental research in Ayurveda and proves that Ayurveda has its own scientific methodology of research and this could be effectively tested with ailments like albuminuria. Albuminuria is a one of the early symptoms of chronic kidney diseases (CKD) and CKD is a very common disorder in present era. For albuminuria, Chandraprabha vati is a commonly used Ayurvedic drug and its efficacy on albuminuria is not scientifically validated yet. Therefore this clinical study was aimed at to re- establish the efficacy of Ayurvedic formulation Chandraprabha vati on albuminuria, which can be compared to some of the types of disease of Prameha (urine abnormality) in Ayurveda, along with the assessment of the effects on the basis of scientific, disease specific biochemical parameter. Hundred patients with albuminuria were selected randomly and divided into two groups, group1was treated with Chandraprabha vati (1000 mg twice daily) and the other was considered as placebo. The results review that the Candraprabha vati has significantly reduced the signs and symptoms of albuminuria, mainly albuminin urine and although turbidity, organisms, pus cells, red cells, colour and frequency of urine and as well as the some pre-monitory symptoms of disease of Prameha. In the light of the results obtained this study proved the fact that Chandraprabha vati has been immensely effective and safe Ayurvedic drug and particularly been the vital factor in reducing the level of albuminin urine significantly in conclusion.
