1.  EFFECT OF CONTAINER ON AYURVEDIC DRUGS – A SELECT STUDY 
Ancient Science of Life  2004;24(1):11-21.
Effect of packing material on the stability of four Ayurvedic drugs viz., Hingvatsaka Curna, Brahmi ghrta, Dasamula Kvatha Curna and Ajamodarka have been studied by distributing the drugs in different containers by observing the physical and biological changes. The study revealed that Hingvatsaka Curna keeps well for at least 6 month, Ajamodarka is stable for minimum period of six months when stored in glass bottle exposed to light. Dasamula K vatha Curna showed the presence of insects at the completion of three months. In the second month itself Brahmi ghrta becomes rancid on storing in glass and amber colored bottles.

2.  Antitumour Activity of Poochendurappattai in Albino Rats in Albino Rats 
Ancient Science of Life  2000;20(1-2):82-84.
The water extract of poochendurappattai was screened for antitumour activity at the doss of 5mg, 10mg, 20mg and 50 mg/kg body weight in rats against methylcholanthrene induced fibrosarcoma. There was 63% regression in the tumour weight at the doses of 10mg and 20 mg/kg body weight. This antitumour activity may be due to compounds like royaleanones since royaleanones are known to possess anticancer activity. Te phytochemical investigation of poochendurappattai revealed the presence of royaleanones.

4.  ANALYTICAL STUDIES ON MATTAN TAILAM 
Ancient Science of Life  1999;18(3-4):199-204.
Mattan tailam, a siddha herbo-mineral oil was prepared and chemically analysed. The physico chemical parameters and thin layer chromatographic pattern were evolved to lay down the standards, The data presented can be used for fixing standards to mattan tailam.

5.  CHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF CUVACAK KUTORI MATTIRAI 
Ancient Science of Life  1998;18(1):24-28.
Cuvacak kutori (mattiral) is an important herbal medicine prescribed for bronchial asthma in siddha system of medicine. In order to evolve pharmacopoeial standards, the medicine was prepared in laboratory scale and chemically analysed. Analytical data along with the tlc pattern can be used for fixing standards.

7.  ON THE ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF SOME SIDDHA MEDICINES 
Ancient Science of Life  1998;17(3):194-202.
Talaka mattirai, Iti vallati meluku, tamibira parpam and Naka centuram of siddha system of medicine were screened for antibacterial activity against S. aureus, S.citreus, S.faecalis B. Subtilis, P.aeruginosa, Coli, S.Boydii, V.cholerae and Klebsiella sp. Talaka matrirai ibihibited the growth of s. faecalis, V.cholerae and B. Subtilis at a concentration of 0.6 mg/ml and 1mg/ml respectively. P.aeruginosa growth was inhibited at a concentration of 0.2mg/ml V. cholerae. at a concentration of 0.6mg/ml and S.boydii at a concentration of 1mg.l by iti vallati meluku. Tambira parpam inhibited the growth of S. faecalis and S. boydii at a concentration of 0.2mg/ml, V.cholerae at a concentration of 0.6mg/ml and S citreus and B. subtilis at a condensation of 1mg/ml there was inhibition of growth of S. citreus and B. subtilis by naka centuram at a concentration of 1mg/ml. Manometric studies revealed the total inhibition of S.boydii by Tambira parpam at a concentration of 1mg/ml while at 0.6mg/ml concentration inhibition was similar to tat of chlroamphenicol (1mg/ml). The antibacterial activity of these medicines was due to ingredients involved in these preparations.

8.  STANDARDISATION OF CIVANAR AMRITAM 
Ancient Science of Life  1997;17(2):100-106.
Civanar amirtam is a siddha herbo- mineral formulation prescribed for rheumatism, bronchial asthma, tuber culosis and leprosy. Of the nine ingredients which constitute the preparation, four are inorganic and the others are plant drugs, Attempts have been made to chemically analyse and to identify the presence of each ingredient in the medicine to lay down standards. The identification of various chemical constituents present in the plant drugs using TLC technique by comparison with authentic chemicals, along with the physico-chemical parameters and quantification of inorganic ions established the presence of each ingredient. The parameters presented can be considered viable for prescribing dependable standards to this preparation.

9.  CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF PATIKARAPARPAM 
Ancient Science of Life  1997;16(4):293-297.
Patikaraparpam, a Siddha formulation in prepared by trituration of potash alum with egg albumin followed by calcinatin. The three authentic laboratories made parpams as well as six commercial samples have been examined for their chemical composition. The analytical data that emerged from the analysis of the above samples showed that seven parpams contained only aluminium sulphate and they did respond to tests for potassium. An inspection of the crude drugs patikaram’ available in the market established that potash alum and ammonia alum are indiscriminateldy taken for use, according to literature, only potash alum should be used in Indian system of medicine. Patikarapparapam is indicated in urinary inflammations and obstructions and is a reputed diuretic. Potassium salts are established diuretic. These studies show that the raw drugs sellers, the pharamaceutists or manufacturers of medicine and the physician as well should make sure that only potash alum is used in Indian medicine.
