1.  Hepatoprotective activity of Annona muricata Linn. and Polyalthia cerasoides bedd. 
Ancient Science of Life  1999;19(1-2):7-10.
The hepatoprotective effect of Annona muricata and Polyalthia cerasoides (Annonaceae) were monitored by estimating the serum transaminases (SGOT and SGPT), serum alkaline phosphatase (SALP), liver and brain lipid peroxidation (LOP) and their total protein content. Both drugs at a dose of 100 μg/kg significantly prevented the increase in serum transaminases, SALP, liver and brain LOP and decrease in liver and brain total protein content following carbontetrachloride (CCl) induced hepatoxicity in albino rats.

2.  EFFECT OF STRESS ON IMMUNITY 
Ancient Science of Life  1997;16(3):227-231.
Immunological system is part of the complex component kapha of Ayurveda. Composed of an array of constituents, it acts as the internal surveillance system of the body. Diseases appear when immunity is compromised. This paper describes in detail the effect of stress on immunity.

3.  IDENTITY OF MOLLUGO STRICTA roots: A POSTENTIAL ANTIFERTILITY DRUG FOR FUTURE 
Ancient Science of Life  1995;15(2):97-101.
The salient diagnostic pharmacognostical characters of the roots of Mollugo strica which sows promise as an antifertility drug for future have been studied. The young root is di-to-tri-arch, diarch conditions being most common. The cork cambium arises in the outermost layer of cortex forming 2-3 layers of cork cells on the outside and phelloderm towards the innerside. In the nature root, two concentric stellar rings are formed around the central was the inner one being continuous where as the outer one is discontinuous. The central core of wood also show delignificant in the advanced stages. Starch and calcium oxalate are absent. Ash values and fluorescence analysis are also determined.

4.  EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES ON ARTEMISIA VULGARIS – A POSSIBLE ANTIFERTILITY DRUG 
Ancient Science of Life  1994;14(1-2):10-15.
The effect of alcoholic extract of the aerial parts of Artemisia vulgaris Linn on estrous cycle and implantation, in female albino rats, was studied. The drug induced an irregular estrous cycle with random disappearance of estrous phase and increase in the number of metestrus phases within the estrous cycle, observed for the total test period of 18 days. It exhibited 80% anti-implantation activity without showing any gross malformations in pups delivered, possibly due to its non-toxic nature even at the high dose of 3000 mg/kg p.o. These facts suggest the drug to possess some antifertility effect.

5.  ANTIULCER AND CYTOPROTECTIVE ACTION OF WEDELIA CALENDULACEA LESS 
Ancient Science of Life  1994;14(1-2):77-81.
The gastric antiulcer and ulcer healing effect of the ethanolic and aqueous extracts of the dried leaves of Wedelia calendulacea. Less was found to be significant. The effect of the aqueous extract was observed to be more pronounced in comparison with that of the ethanolic extract.

6.  IMMUNOMODULATORS OF PLANT ORIGIN – A REVIEW 
Ancient Science of Life  1994;13(3-4):326-331.
The immunomodulatory property of plants is being studied with greater interest in recent years. This is more so because of the growing awareness regarding the need to modulate the immune system to achieve the desirable effects of preventing an infection rather than treating it at an advanced state. The recent advances in this field are summarized in this article.
