Abstract

Background: Homoeopathic medicines have the potential in treatment of patients suffering from cancers, Diabetic Retinopathy, and hemorrhagic disorders wherein anti- angiogenesis plays a vital role. Homoeopathic medicines have been used to treat haemorrhagic disorders. For example, Hamamelis is used in haemorrhages, varicose veins and in venous congestion. Thalaspi bursa is used in flabby condition of uterus, haemorrhagic conditions of uterine fibroid. This been said, their mechanism of action remains unknown. Therefore, this study was intended to establish angiogenic/anti-angiogenic effect of the selected homoeopathic medicines employing chick embryo model.

Objective:

  1. To study the anti-angiogenic properties of selected homoeopathic medicines employing YSM assay in the chick embryo model.
  2. To test the toxicity of selected homoeopathic medicines through Chick embryo model.

Materials and Method: Yolk Sac Membrane is widely utilized as an in vivo system to study angiogenesis and anti-angiogenesis. The images for all YSMs were captured and were analyzed for angiogenic/anti-angiogenic effect.

Results: Significant anti-angiogenic effects were observed in 10% concentrations of Hamamelis200cH, Thalaspi bursa 200cH and Thalaspi bursa 1M. Reduction of vessel density and total vessel network length, total branching points, total nets and total segment symbolizes that these medicines have anti-angiogenic potential and so they help in treating menstrual disorders, which is followed with cramps and discharge of clots.

Conclusion: The mechanism of action of selected homoeopathic medicines as anti- angiogenic agent is proved which can be used to combat various diseases like haemorrhages, varicose veins, in venous congestion and problems related to haemorrhagic disorders. This will further help to study the action of these Homoeopathic medicines as potential line of treatment in patients suffering from cancers, Diabetic Retinopathy, hemorrhagic disorders wherein anti- angiogenesis plays a vital role.
