A number of drugs are available in the market, which have achieved improved efficacy and safety after incorporating the active agents in carrier systems. Therefore, putting new life into erstwhile discarded drug molecules by transforming them into novel formulations can serve as viable and cost effective alternative to the expensive and time consuming search of newer alternative drugs and therapies in Siddha systems of medicine. Efficacy of ‘SENKONRAI PATTAI KUDINNER with topical application of SENKONRAI PATTAI POOCHU was showed to various categories. Clinical outcomes showed moderate improvement in 15%, mild improvement in 75% and No improvement in 10% of children. There was no adverse events noticed in throughout the study and the experimental formulations were cost effective. The results are better in children. Body and lower limb lesions respond much quickly as compared to lesions in other parts of the body while lesions on joints have relatively lower response. During our study, senkonrai pattai kudineer and poochu didn’t show any adverse events as like Psoralen compounds, Placental extracts, Steroids (topical or systemic). In recent time, Sasthric traditional Siddha formulations, and a better knowledge of the physicochemical and phytochemical properties of herbs and formulations have led to the development of evaluated Siddha drug delivery systems that have the potential to re-invent the internal and topical treatments of Venpulli (vitiligo). There is hope and enthusiasm from this study that further research enhanced collaboration with dermatology researchers will bring this hitherto untapped potential to fruition.
