  • Area Of Research:Prof. Sarada D. Tetali’s research group is engaged in investigating and identifying bioactive principles of those medicinal plants have been traditionally used for cardiovascular system disorders and diseases, using human cell culture (eg. Human monocytic and aortic endothelial cells) systems modeling inflammation and oxidative stress. These cell culture models are also being used to screen for toxicity of biomolecules and/or nanomaterials used in developing health care technology. Prof. Tetali’s group is working towards enhanced production of bioactive metabolites using microbial technologies.

Molecular mechanism of herbal medicine in attenuating vascular inflammation is of great interest. It is well established that inflammation in the blood vessel walls sets the stage for the development of atherosclerosis, a blood vessel wall disease in which plaque builds up inside arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry oxygen-rich blood to heart and other parts of the body. Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is a multifactorial disease and is the most common cause for the morbidity and death in the world. Though the pharmacological industries are advancing in preventing and curing the disease, vascular disease remains as the most costly disease in terms of lives and money. Herbal medicines, those are historically known to be atheroprotective need attention in terms of understanding their molecular mechanism of action and identification of active chemical constituents. Such studies pave a way for their integration into the modern medicine.

In contrast to most modern medicine, herbal medicines contain multiple active ingredients, possibly having multiple targets in the body and thus can have potential solutions for addressing multifactorial diseases. Hence, metabolomics of herbal extracts, which are being used for cardiac health in traditional medicine, yield valuable information in designing new drugs for complexed diseases like cardio vascular diseases.
