    Cow urine and Camel urine for medicinal use

    Sometime ago there was a vociferous slinging match about cow urine versus camel urine on this forum. Please let us not start that again, but this is a serious query. I came across the following over the net. Which led me to wonder, has anyone thought of patenting Camel urine for medicinal purposes or any research on it anywhere?

    India patents cow urine for medicinal use

    A US patent has been granted to Indian scientists on the use of cow urine distillate as bio-enhancer, Minister Of Science And Technology Murli Manohar Joshi announced on Wednesday.

    "A combination of Indian traditional wisdom and modern science has led to a unique US patent No 6,410,059 that was granted to Indian scientists on June 25, 2002," Mr. Joshi said at a special function in New Delhi.

    The patent has been granted for a pharmaceutical composition containing an antibiotic and cow urine distillate in an amount effective to enhance the anti-microbial effects of antibiotic and anti-fungal agents.

    "The present invention has direct implication in drastically reducing the dosage of antibiotics, drugs and anti-cancer agent while increasing the efficiency of absorption of bio-active molecules, thereby reducing the cost of treatment and also the side-effects due to toxicity," Mr. Joshi said.

    The use of cow urine is known for a long time in India. Go-mutra (cow's urine) has therapeutic values and the fact was mentioned in Sushrita Samhita and Ashtanga Sangraha. However, the biological activity of cow's urine was not tested scientifically, he said.
