Abstract:   (461 Views)
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic multi-system disease of unknown cause. It affects the people in their prime of life, predominantly between the ages of 20-50 years with unpredictable course. Sudard is used in the ayurvedic system of medicine for the treatment of inflammation and pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis, osteo-arthritis, frozen shoulder, sciatica, ankylosing spondylitis and chronic backache. Our study was aimed to evaluate efficacy of sudard using different animal models such as formalin (2% v/v) induced acute inflammation, carrageen (1% v/v) induced polyarthritis, adjuvant induced arthritis, subacute inflammation by sponge implantation technique and analgesic activity by Eddy’s hot plate method. The results indicate that the formulation sudard possesses anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic and analgesic activities in the experimental animal models.
