1.  CRITICAL STUDY OF THE ASAVAISHTA PREPARATIONS OF BRHATIRAYEE 
Ancient Science of Life  1990;9(3):125-133.
This study deals with Asavarishta preparations of the Ayurvedic System of medicine and scans various classical texts to find out the different types of constituents required for their preparation along with their proportions, the method of preparation, the time required to complete the process, the fermentations pots, the fermenting materials, the place and time (season) of fermentation etc. with a view to develop certain common norms for their preparation.

3.  EXPERIMENTAL MODEL FOR THE STUDY OF ANTIDIABETIC EFFECT OF AYURVEDIC METALLIC PREPARATIONS 
Ancient Science of Life  1987;7(1):49-54.
To Substantiate the claims of Ayurvedic classics, animal experimentation with modern technology has been carried out in this paper. Various methods have been described for induction diabetes Mellitus or any other disease. Now it is the duty of an Ayurvedist to select the suitable method on the guidelines of Ayurvedic aetiology to produce a condition stimulating to Prameha (Madhumeha) and the best suitable method (Folin-Wu) for estimating the sugar content of blood is adopted. Besides this one must do experiment in all species and should confirm the finding by clinical evaluation. Side by side toxicity studies are also necessary.

4.  SVARNA – VANGA – A SHORT DURATION TOXICITY STUDY 
Ancient Science of Life  1985;5(2):86-90.
Swarna – Vanga, an Ayurvedic preparation, is used in the treatment mainly of Pramehas (genitor urinary and metabolic disorders), Sveta Pradara (Leucorrhoea), Kasa – Swasa (Respiratory disorders), etc. The drug contains tin and sulphur as major components along with traces of mercury, iron and aluminum. According to modern point of view certain metals have been claimed toxic to both human and animal. Since Svarna – Vanga contains these metals, it is essential to screen out its toxic effect, if any, although it is claimed in Ayurveda that when a metal is processed as prescribed, it become non – toxic or the least toxic. Considering the above facts, an animal experiment was carried out for short duration (14 days) to screen the toxic effects of Svarna – Vanga (SV) in increasing doses of the drug starting from the maximum therapeutic dose (12.5 mg / 100 gm b.wt / day). The drug was found to have no toxic effects in tissues of the animal at doses of 12.5 mg and 25 mg / 100 gm b.wt. / day. Fine fatty vacuolization in liver and focal superficial mucosal degeneration and necrosis of small intestine confined to one animal each at dose of 50 mg / 100gm b.wt. and 100 mg/ 100 gm. b.wt. / day were observed. Our study indicates that the drug has no toxic effect on tissues at therapeutic dose.

5.  STUDY ON THE VRSYA PROPERTY (TESTICULAR REGENERATIVE POTENTIAL) OF VANGA BHASMA 
Ancient Science of Life  1985;5(1):42-48.
Vanga bhasma, a popular Ayurvedic Medicine is prepared from Tin metal. This drug is claimed to have ‘Sukrala’ (Semenaugmentator), ‘vrsya’ (good for testis) properties in the literature and is widely in vogue for genito – urinary disorders in Ayurvedic practice. An experimental evaluation of the claim has been undertaken and the results have been presented in this paper. The drug in reference is found to have testicular regenerative potential on cadmium induced testicular degeneration in albino tats, when administered orally. This effect on ‘Sukravaha Srotomula’ (testis) appears to corroborate “Sukrala” and “Vrsya” properties attributed to the drug in Ayuredic literature.
