Clinical research involves investigating proposed medical treatments, assessing the relative benefits of competing therapies, and establishing optimal treatment combinations. It is the most fruitful line of approach for methods of diagnosis and treatment as described in Ayurvedic literature. Anaemia is the most common indicator used to screen for iron deficiency, the terms anaemia, iron deficiency, and iron deficiency anaemia are sometimes used interchangeably. Iron deficiency anaemia would be considered a public health problem only when the prevalence of haemoglobin concentration exceeds 5.0% of the population. The prevalence of iron deficiency anaemia in a population is therefore a statistical rather than a physiological concept, although it reflects that proportion of the population that has iron-deficient erythropoiesis. As iron deficiency has been recognized as commonest nutritional deficiency disorder and a risk to the nation among top ten selected health risks, although this deficiency disorder has been described by the name Panduroga thousands of years ago in the Ayurvedic classics. Punarnava Mandura is an Ayurvedic iron preparation has been used for the management of this disease since that time. In the present study a clinical trial of Punarnava Mandura has been carried out for evaluating the better efficacy on Panduroga i.e., Iron deficiency anaemia. Study Drug Punarnava Mandura following the reference of Bhaishsjya Ratnavali was selected and its comparison was done with ferrous sulphate taken as a control.
