On Wednesday, there was inaugurated a two-day Indo-US symposium on `Methodology of Research in Indian Systems of Medicine'.
The objective of the symposium is to discuss rationale of Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani based on the research so that these traditional therapies can be made prevalent across the globe. Also, the symposium is giving a great opportunity to the traditional medicine industry to exhibit its strengths and approached that it follows in manufacturing and while conducting research.
It required vigilant planning and support from the Government for introducing the traditional medicines in the global market, as expressed by Prof Ikhlas A Khan, Director of FDA programme at the University of Mississippi and Director of Centre for Research in Indian Systems of Medicine (CRISM).
He added that Ayurveda, Unani, Siddha herbal and botanical products in accordance with the global standards were being created by scientists at CRISM that would be launched across the globe.
Though, there had been used traditional therapies for over 1000 years in the country itself, but no documentation associated with the experiments and methodologies was available, as told by Shakir Jamil, Director-general, Central Council for Research in Unani Medicine (CCRUM).
He said, "There is a need to develop sound scientific methodology of research in these systems, aiming at finding empirical evidence to validate various concepts and strengths".
