Purpose: Ashtavidh rogi pariksha one of the main diagnostic methods described in Ayurveda includes Mutra Taila Bindu Pariksha (MTBP), which is simple and cost effective. Modern diagnostic investigations of tumor markers and radiological procedures are costly and usual tests for recording different stages of cancer. MTBP is also used at Lavanya Ayurvedic Hospital in Cancer patients as diagnostic and prognostic parameters. Test depends on pattern of spreading of oil drop over surface of patient's urine. Method: This procedure was modified keeping all parameters fixed like distance at which sesame oil falls and procedure of collection of urine sample. This equipment was attached with a photographic device. 50 randomly selected cases were divided into two groups. Group I consisted of 10 healthy volunteers and group II consisted of 40 pre diagnosed cases of different types of cancer. Patients were made to sleep at 9 PM. On next morning (5 AM) mid stream urine of the first urination was collected in a standard sized beaker of 250 ml. Sample beaker was kept in a specifically designed glass and fibre cabinet, which was devoid of air. A 10 ml glass burette filled with Tila taila (Sesame oil) was fixed over beaker containing urine. One drop of sesame oil was dropped over the stable surface of urine from a distance of 2 cm. The oil drop dispersal pattern on the surface of collected urine sample was recorded photographically. It was analysed periodically at monthly intervals for three times. Result: The results of oil spreading nature, direction and shape over urine surface were compared with modern biochemical, haematological and radiological parameters in different stages of cancer. Conclusion: The pattern of dispersal of sesame oil was progressively changed in relation to the improvement in subjective and bjective parameters in LAS01 treated cases.
