Through its computerized database, the Institute regularly searches Medical Databases for all references to current research on Unani medicine. For example, a recent search found published results of clinical trials of nigella sativa carried out by a team of Muslim medical researchers in Florida, who found the herb to be effective in boosting immune function, and preliminary results seem favorable toward treatment of cancer and aids.
We will shortly make available a list of many hundreds of published papers related to research relevant to Unani Traditional Healing being carried on throughout the world.
The main areas of research conducted through the Institute are:
Unani Medicine through history
Basic principles, concepts and philosophies of Unani Medicine
Classical literature in Unani Medicine
Prevention of disease and promotion of health in Unani Medicine
Drug standardization research
