“The novelty of the drug is that it is single-plant based having defined scientific contributions for the effective treatment of kidney stones, a first in the country. The previous drugs were polyherbal compositions that did not have exact and defined scientific contributions of individual herbs,” shared Jyoti Kaushik.
This study would provide an impetus for the development of clinically effective single plant-based antilithiatic herbal drug for kidney stones, a drug that prevents the formation and provides effective treatment of kidney stones.
