Basant Kusumakar Ras has significant anti-hyperglycaemic effects. It may also increase insulin levels in the plasma. The toxicity study indicated that kidney functions improved biochemically, but toxic effects appeared in kidney histopathology. Biochemically, total proteins, albumin and glomerular filtration improved. In histopathological study, inflammation occurred in kidneys, which was due to the heavy metal accumulation in the kidneys. Mercury accumulation in the kidneys activated the mononuclear phagocyte system and the immune response generated due to this caused kidney inflammation. Apoptosis (cell death) was increased in kidney tissue. This study was performed using 50 mg Vasant Kusumakar Ras per Kg body weight in Albino Wistar rats.
