The practice of Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India, is based on the concept of three major constitutional types (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) defined as “Prakriti”. To the best of our knowledge, no study has convincingly correlated genomic variations with the classification of Prakriti. In the present study, we performed genome-wide SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) analysis (Affymetrix, 6.0) of 262 well-classified male individuals (after screening 3416 subjects) belonging to three… Expand
Predictive, Preventive and Personalized Medicine: Leads From Ayurvedic Concept of Prakriti (Human Constitution)
TLDR
Ayurvedic Prakriti-based treatment resonates with PM and pharmacogenomics and holds potential and promise for future predictive or preventive medicine. Expand
Recapitulation of Ayurveda constitution types by machine learning of phenotypic traits
TLDR
This study is the first to demonstrate that Prakriti types are distinct verifiable clusters within a multidimensional space of multiple interrelated phenotypic traits within a genetically homogeneous population of Western India. Expand
Prakriti phenotypes as a stratifier of gut microbiome: A new frontier in personalized medicine?
TLDR
It is suggested that prakriti phenotyping can function as a potential stratifier of the gut microbiome in a given population and may provide evidence for the conceptual framework of personalized medicine in Ayurvedic system of medicine. Expand
Correlations between blood group and dominant Prakriti based on the Tridosha concept of Ayurveda
The concept of ‘Tridoshas’ in Ayurveda encompasses a well-defined theory of maintaining and upholding the basic nature of human body and its physiology by means of three biological energy pillarsExpand
Ayurgenomics for stratified medicine: TRISUTRA consortium initiative across ethnically and geographically diverse Indian populations.
TLDR
Considering the molecular and genomics differences underlying Prakriti and relevance in disease pharmacogenomics studies, this novel integrative platform would help in identification of differently susceptible and drug responsive population. Expand
Genesis of Personalized Medicine: Relevance of Ayurveda in the PresentMillennium
TLDR
Several genomic and metabolomic studies augmented the possibilities of yet undisclosed molecular and genetic basis of Ayurveda, which could further be integrated or complemented to current medical diagnosis and treatment. Expand
Understanding the association between the human gut, oral and skin microbiome and the Ayurvedic concept of prakriti
TLDR
Bacteria known for preventing gut inflammation by digesting the resistant starch were abundant in the pitta prakriti individuals, who are more prone to develop gut-inflammation-related disorders. Expand
PRAKRITI ANALYSIS AND ITS CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE
TLDR
Prakriti emphasizes on the individuality and plays an important role in diagnosis, preventive medicine, and therapeutics, one of the earliest known concepts of preventive and personalized or genomic medicine. Expand
Exploring the signature gut and oral microbiome in individuals of specific Ayurveda prakriti.
TLDR
These findings provide evidence to Ayurvedic interventions based on prakriti phenotyping and possible microbial biomarkers that can stratify the heterogenous population and aid in precision therapy. Expand
Exploring AyuGenomics approach for understanding COVID-19 predisposition and progression
TLDR
The proposed approach of Ayurveda based phenotype screening may offer a way ahead to design customized strategies for management of COVID-19 based on differences in Prakriti, immune response and drug response, however, this needs clinical evaluation of the relation between Prakrati and genetic or phenotypic variants in CO VID-19 prone and resistant populations.

TLDR
This study makes a first attempt towards unraveling the clinical phenotyping principle of a traditional system of medicine in terms of modern biology using Ayurveda based method of phenotypic classification of extreme constitutional types. Expand
Classification of human population based on HLA gene polymorphism and the concept of Prakriti in Ayurveda.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that there could be a genetic basis for the three major constitutions (Prakriti) described in Ayurveda and this may provide an appropriate means of classifying phenotypes to be considered collectively for genotyping. Expand
Prakriti (Ayurvedic concept of constitution) and variations in platelet aggregation
TLDR
It is observed that in the study population of normal healthy participants, ADP-induced maximal platelet aggregation (MPA) was highest among the Vata-pitta prakriti individuals and these individuals responded better to lower dose of aspirin compared to other prariti types. Expand

TLDR
Differentially methylated regions in CpG islands and shores were significantly enriched in promoters/UTRs and gene body regions, demonstrating the epigenetic basis of Indian traditional human classification which may have relevance to personalized medicine. Expand
