"Iran says they have cure for multiple sclerosis with homeopathic medication"

Yesterday saw news from Baku, Azerbaijan stating that a new treatment for Multiple Sclerosis is going to hit Iranian markets in October of this year and that it is going to be able to cure this disabling disease.

As a matter of fact, it was an Iranian television news station that had said in January of this year researchers had discovered an “herbal substance that can completely cure multiple sclerosis”, but yesterday's release shows they now have an idea of when those with MS will be able to use it.

Mohammad Ali Saraian, the Deputy chairman of Iran's Multiple Sclerosis Society was reported as saying that it is an oral medication (syrup-form) and it is currently undergoing the last stages of clinical testing with human subjects.


The release brought up January’s report of researchers from Tabriz Medical Research University having discovered an herbal mixture they are calling the “MS Nut” that is made of “special oil plants” and that they had been working on it for two and a half years.
They had found 65 patients of the 100 tested were able to finish the six month (to a year) trial, but “those with more advanced forms of the disease were unable to” so, from what exact information that was given at this time, they are coming close to ending the trial(s) and producing the medication.
Iran has already deemed the medication safe and had actually licensed its release in January, with the country’s Health Ministry authorizing the production in Iran’s pharmaceutical companies.
The number of MS patients in Iran has increased over the years, to date that number stands around 50,000 according to the media report; with environmental factors being blamed and they are thinking at least one person in every family will be diagnosed with MS within the next decade.
Putting aside for the moment the use of the word “cure” and politics, it means a great deal they, like those of us in the States, are working for the betterment of people afflicted with this disease and, however this new finding these scientists have discovered works out, many across the world wish them well in their endeavors.
Of note: As a result of OFAC sanctions we have been made aware that US editors, US Elsevier staff and US reviewers are now unable to handle scientific manuscripts where any of the authors are employed by the Government of Iran. click for full story
