Institute of Cardiology, Russian Cardiology Scientific and Production Center, ul. Tretiya Cherepkovskaya 15a, 121552 Moscow, Russia.

In a framework of multicenter study ATLANTIKA in a group of patients we carried out noninvasive ultrasound test of endothelium dependent vasodilatation (EDVD) of brachial artery before and at the background of therapy with atorvastatin. Aim of the study was to assess and compare effects of incremental (10 - 80 mg/day) and stable (10 mg/day) doses of atorvastatin on functional state of endothelium. The group of observation comprised 148 patients - 86 men, 62 women aged 59.5 (55;66) years, who were included into ATLANTIKA study and randomized to 3 groups: group A - active therapy with stable dose of atorvastatin (10 mg/day) (n=52), active therapy with titration of atorvastatin dose from 10 to 80 mg/day (n=50), group C - common therapy which could include lipid lowering drugs (n=46). At baseline there were no statistically significant differences between groups in main demographical, laboratory and instrumental parameters. Median EDVD was 5.4 (3.5; 8.0), 5.1 (3.9; 7.6) and 5.6 (3.2; 8.1)% in groups A, B, and C, respectively. After 12 and 24 weeks of observation statistically significant increases of brachial artery EDVD occurred only in group B (by 27.2 and 31.9%, respectively). There was no statistically significant positive dynamics of EDVD in groups A and C. Results of the presented work show that for achievement of statistically significant positive vascular effect it is necessary to titrate dose of atorvastatin until target level of low density lipoprotein cholesterol ( < 2.5 mmol/l) is achieved. Vascular effect of therapy with atorvastatin in a fixed dose 10 mg/day is inferior to that of aggressive therapy, however it is substantially superior to common treatment.

Ayurveda in American Perspective

Posted by: admin in Ayurveda | Comment (0)
Tagged in: Untagged 

We are practicing Ayurveda in 21st century. In the last few decades, there is remarkable popularity seen in international community regarding clinical potential of ayurvedic medicine. The Ayurvedic pharmacopoeia contains hundreds of listings, uses and preparations. Many of these have been in continuous use for several thousand years. Although these medicines are trusted by those in India, from western modern “double blind clinical trial” perspective they are unproven to be safe and or effective.

In the Western scientific paradigm it is customary to identify a traditional therapy and medicine, isolate the active ingredient, standardize the potency and clinically test its safety and efficacy outside of the remedy’s traditional use. What needs to be studied is the authentic cultural treatment as a system of healing, not whether an isolated compound can be grafted into our modern medical system. We need to study the difference between an ingredient’s chemical identification and its physiological medicinal and / or toxic properties. The first study should be whether a therapy and its medicines are toxic as traditionally used. Then follow with a study of its efficacy.

Some Ayurvedic formulations contain herbs that are natural forms of drugs or substances generally considered toxic in their customary forms. We need to study Ayurvedic remedies, formulations, and therapies in a way that satisfies our Western scientific method while preserving those therapeutic elements considered important by Ayurveda. We should not simply study isolated compounds but the medicines, therapies and medical system as a whole.

There are unique preparations in Ayurveda that intentionally combine specially prepared minerals with botanicals for the purpose of increasing the effect of the botanicals. It is these formulas that are the most suspect to our Western eyes as they often contain mercury, lead and / or other ingredients that have been proven to be toxic in forms we are familiar with. These Ayurvedic formulas have long and complicated preparation methods often lasting months or even years. They are believed to have amazing curative powers in the treatment of uncontrolled ailments of modern era, but are they toxic as well? They are traditionally believed to be safe when properly prescribed, prepared and taken. They address serious medical problems like cirrhosis of the liver, hepatitis, kidney problems, mental and brain function disorders, Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophies and other serious Neuro-muscular diseases, etc. But it is important that we insure and determine proper preparation and whether there is any risk of toxicity when prepared and used properly. The preparations with lead and mercury are not currently approved by the US FDA and therefore can not be used by people in the United States until proper studies are done.
