Amrita Centre for Advanced Research in Ayurveda (ĀCĀRA) is a new initiative of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham at the Amrita School of Ayurveda located in the Amritapuri Campus of the institution.
ĀCĀRA is inspired by the vision of Amma to provide a scientific backing for traditional medical practices and pave the way for the development of an evidence based Integrative approach to health care. Ayurveda is being increasingly accessed by people world over and has an unbroken continuity in its practice in India.


IASTAM India (Indian Association for the Study of Traditional Asian Medicine) is a multidisciplinary organization that pioneered intellectual conclaves and is active for over 38 years. It has been organizing events at the international & national level on subjects of significance. With the theme ‘Connecting Systems, Bridging Disciplines’ it is now committed to global healthcare through AYUSH systems and integrative efforts to bridge the gaps in the medical care. IASTAM has conducted important meets as ‘ICAAM 2016 – International Conference on Advances in Asian Medicine’, ‘Consultative Meet on Cancer’ at behest of Ministry of AYUSH in 2016, ‘Conclave on Translational Research Opportunities in Ayurveda’ in 2017, ‘Brainstorming Meet on NITI AYOG Initiative:

Cancer Care and Research in AYUSH: Developing a Roadmap

Worldwide, cancer is the second leading cause of death after cardiovascular disease. Prevention and treatment measures focusing on environmental factors have been implemented, but little progress in reducing the incidence of cancers has been made. The cost of cancer treatment remains prohibitive in major parts of the world. Cancer burden in India is growing and 1 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed every year in a population of 1·2 billion. In age-standardized terms, the mortality burden of cancer in India is comparable to that seen in high-income countries. Such figures are partly indicative of low rates of early-stage detection and poor treatment outcomes.

In India, there is widespread use of traditional medical systems like Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani and Homoeopathy for management of Cancer in various stages of its clinical presentation. There are reports of benefits from such interventions, even as there are serious concerns about the delay in seeking conventional care as well as herb-drug interactions that can lead to adverse outcomes. On the other hand, there is a strong consensus that primary and secondary prevention, pain and palliative care, as well as supportive care during chemotherapy and radiation, are the areas of promise where AYUSH systems can make substantial contributions in cancer care. Drug discovery from cancer from traditional therapeutics has always been an area of research interest for several decades that needs new dimensions. It is also believed that the AYUSH knowledge base can help throw new light on the development of the disease and its manifestations.

In these circumstances, there is a need to develop integrative approaches and treatment guidelines for the management of cancer to maximise treatment outcomes. This calls for a systematic dialogue and continuous deliberations between practitioners of AYUSH systems and conventional medicine as well as researchers and academicians.

The Conclave on “Cancer Care and Research in AYUSH: Developing a Roadmap” is an outcome-oriented step in this direction. The conclave aims to achieve the stated objective of a roadmap through structured deliberations for well-defined endpoints with the following sub themes :

  • Developing Drugs and Products for Cancer Management
  • Cancer Biology and AYUSH Principles, Evolving Integrative Approaches
  • Treatment modalities for AYUSH in Cancer
  • Prevention of Cancer, AYUSH Perspectives

February 15, 2019: There will be a Pre Conclave Workshop on Ayush Treatment Modalities of Cancer. Entry is restricted to 50 participants. The IASTAM Award Function will also be held in the evening of February 15, 2019 from 3:30 PM onwards.

February 16, 2019: The Brainstorming Sessions of the Cancer Conclave will be conducted from 9 am onwards.

February 17, 2019: Oral presentations of selected abstracts will be presented in three parallel sessions. Posters will be presented in two sessions. The Conclave will conclude at 3.30 pm.

Who Can Attend

Faculty, Medical practitioners, PG and Ph.D. scholars, Internees, Researchers and scientist from Ayurveda, Life science and medical streams.
