Study 1 Cognitive impairment Title: Evaluation of a Unani Formulation for Improving Cognitive Impairment in Children with Cerebral Palsy and Mental Retardation The study was conducted at Majeedia Hospital, Jamia Hamdard in collaboration with UDAAN an NGO working for disabled children. This was a controlled study in which both groups were given physiotherapy and special education but one group was given Unani formulation and other group HBOT. The study was conducted on current clinical parameters following the GCP. Objective: To prove efficacy of Unani formulation in the treatment of Neurodevelopmental disabilities with special emphases on cognitive improvement in Cerebral Palsy (C.P.) and/or Mental Retardation (M.R.). Outcome: Long term amelioration of associated behavioural and neurological problems Improvement in memory and cognitive functions Improvement in musculo-skeletal deformities Unani Medicine as Adjuvant therapy Contd..
Study 2 Title: Study on management of Pulmonary Tuberculosis with herbal Unani product (0394) as an adjuvant drug. The study was sponsored by Panacea Biotech and conducted at Majeedia Hospital, Jamia Hamdard, Hamdard Nagar, New Delhi. This was a controlled study in which ATT was given to both groups and only one group was given Unani adjuvant formulation along with ATT. The study was conducted on current clinical parameters following the GCP. Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of Unani formulation in enhancement of resolution rate in Pulmonary Tuberculosis including MDR. Outcome: Fast resolution of infiltration in chest. Faster sputum clearance for AFB. Better response in MDR cases. Unani Medicine as Adjuvant therapy
Study 3 Title: Clinical evaluation of a Unani formulation for prevention ofhepato-nephro toxicity in Pulmonary Tuberculosis. (The study was conducted at Majeedia Hospital, Jamia Hamdard. This was a controlled study in which both groups were given ATT and one group was Unani Hepato-protective formulation. The study was conducted on current clinical parameters following the GCP. Objective: To evaluate efficacy of Unani formulation in the treatment of Pulmonary Tuberculosis with reference to prevention of hepato- nephro toxicity. Unani Medicine as Adjuvant therapy
