Anti arthritic activity of Santha Sandhirodaya Mathirai (S.S.Pills, a Siddha formulation) was taken up for assessment on Azhal keelvayu (Osteo arthritis) patients. 120 patients were selected and divided into 3 groups. I group received S.S.Pills 3 pills with Thunai marunthu (Adjuvant) 1 gm of Thirikadugu choornam three times a day with honey, II group received Thirikadugu choornam 1 gm three times daily with honey. III group received S.S. Pill 3 tds with honey. Treatment period was 21 days without any interval. The anti arthritic effect of Santha sandirodaya mathirai alone and with adjuvant were assessed and compared with the clinical parameters such as pain, tenderness, swelling by joint circumference. The I group and III group showed more or less equal effect on Azhal keelvayu both clinically and statistically.
