Siddha Medicine is one among the ancient, scientific, traditional Medical systems of the world. It is being practiced in the Tamil speaking areas of India. Recently the Central Government of India started the National Institute of Siddha (N.I.S) at Madras, which was declared open by Dr. Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India. The test drug “Saveera Chendooram” is made as per the procedure found in the ancient Siddha literatures. It has the combination of Mercuric Chloride (purified)” and “Borax (purified)”. Purification forms a very important role in the preparation since mercuric chloride is described as a highly toxic material (causing nephro-toxicity). It is purified with tender coconut and camphor. This drug has already proven Anti-microbial properties. Pharmacological screening revealed that the drug has got potent Anti-inflammatory (both acute and chronic), Anti-pyretic and Analgesic actions.
