Source: eJournal of Indian Medicine: Jajjaṭa’s Nirantarapadavyākhyā and Other Commentaries on the Carakasaṃhitā

Nirantarapadavyākhyā (निरन्तरपदव्याख्या) by Jajjaṭa (or Jejjaṭa) is one of the earliest extant and, therefore, one of the most important commentaries on the Carakasaṃhitā. Although it is incomplete, sufficient portions survive to allow a study of the earliest form of medical commentary in India. Its extant portions consist of large sections of the Cikitsāsthāna and part of the Kalpasthāna and Siddhisthāna. [...] Jajjaṭa’s descriptive method follows that of a traditional commentarial style (ṭīkā) in Sanskrit with a specialization in āyurvedic terminology and concepts. A principal aim of the commentator seems to be the establishment of the correct reading of the original (mūla) text, which in places varies from the extant printed editions of the Carakasaṃhitā.
