Controlled Clinical trials were carried out on human beings suffering from Rheumatoid arthritis; Is not only its efficacy was confirmed but it was also found safe in long duration. The research work was published in Eastern Pharmacist which was reported by country's premier News Agency United News of India on 21.06.1982 0under the caption: Hope for arthritis patients.

The Influence of TheTourniquet on blood draw

[1] Various methods are used to obtain specimens for hematocritdetermination in neonates. We evaluated arterial sampling andfound this method to be acceptable. Arterial values correlatedclosely with simultaneously obtained venous samples. Venousblood obtained with a tourniquet had a significantly higherhematocrit than that obtained without a tourniquet.[2] Influence of tourniquet application on venous blood sampling for serum chemistry, hematological parameters, leukocyte activation and erythrocyte mechanical propertiesBackground: Venous blood sampling is usually performed using a tourniquet to help locate and define peripheral veins to achieve successful and safe venipuncture. Despite widespread usage of tourniquets for venipuncture by medical and laboratory staff, very few are aware of the effects of tourniquet application on laboratory parameters.
