The Memorandum of Understanding was signed to conduct research on Arthritic Activity of Shunthi Guggulu

A bipartite Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Central Ayurveda Research Institute (CARI), Guwahati and College of Veterinary Science (CVSC), Guwahati on Thursday here today. The signing ceremony was held after it was formally launched by the Union Minister of Ports, Shipping & Waterways and AYUSH, Sarbananda Sonowal recently.
Dr Dinesh Baruah, Assistant Director (In-charge), CARI, Guwahati and Dr B. N. Saikia, Dean of College of Veterinary Science, Guwahati along with senior officials from both the institutions were present at the event. The CARI is an autonomous body under Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Sciences (CCRAS) and the CVSC is under the Assam Agricultural University (AAU). The project will scientifically validate the safety and efficacy of the Ayurvedic formulations for treating rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis through experimental animal models. This will pave the way for further study of the drug to treat arthritis in humans.
On this occasion, Dr Dinesh Baruah said, "This initiative will tremendously boost the vision of Hon'ble Union Minister of AYUSH Shri Sarbananda Sonowal and will be a step towards taking Ayurveda to the grassroots. With the completion of the study, people will receive a scientifically proven Ayurvedic medicine which will increase acceptance of Ayurveda among the masses."
