AYUSH-64 was repurposed after scientific evidence generated from 7 clinical studies across India. It has been identified as a potential adjunct to standard care in the management of asymptomatic, mild and moderate COVID-19 to improve the clinical recovery and quality of life through robust clinical trials conducted in the country. The in-silico study done on AYUSH-64 showed that about 35 out of 36 of its Phyto-constituents have high binding affinity against COVID-19 virus.
AYUSH-64 is an addition to the range of immunity building products that the brand is already championing. These include Sri Sri Tattva Kabasura Kudineer tablets, Amruth, Turmeric Plus, Shakti Drops and Tulasi Arka and Chyawanprash. The brand has also been conducting clinical trials and studies to establish the efficacy of the AYUSH system of medicines. One such study done by the Frankfurt Innovation Centre (FIZ) showed that Sri Sri Tattva Kabasura Kudineer was a strong inhibitor of Spike (RBD): ACE2 binding at 84% at least.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Arvind Varchaswi, Managing Director, Sri Sri Tattva said, “Sri Sri Tattva is synonymous to quality healthcare products and services, worldwide. Last year, we launched Sri Sri Tattva Kabasura Kudineer, which to date has helped millions across the world during this pandemic. Today, we have come together with the Ministry of Ayush to add in one more clinically researched product that will benefit humanity at large. To achieve this, we have entered into a strategic partnership with 1 mg, to reach out to more people in need.”
Padma Shri Vaidya Rajesh Kotecha, Honourable Secretary, Ministry of Ayush said, “AYUSH-64 is not an immuno modulator, it is a drug repurposed for the treatment of COVID-19. The ingredients have the immuno modulatory effects, but the study is done for the use of AYUSH-64 as a treatment in COVID-19 as an add on or as stand alone. There have been 7 different clinical studies of different designs on AYUSH-64. Simultaneously, docking studies were carried out for AYUSH-64 at NIN, ICMR and IIT, BHU. Preclinical studies are also carried out at THSTI and DBT Institute.”
