Joint declaration of Neurosciences Research Center and Neurology Department, Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, with regard to recently introduced multiple sclerosis herbal supplement (MS-NUT):
With reference to publicizing the results of our research project entitled ”Assessment of the effect of a herbal supplement and nutritional diet with hot nature upon MS patients” by interviews and on the website of Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, controversial news have been caught. This case was propounded in the 91st meeting of research council of Neurosciences Research Center and the meeting of general council of neurology department, and thus the following conclusions are announced: First, the herbal supplement has concurrently been used with common and standard therapies of MS. Second, the relative alleviation in exclusively some of MS symptoms has been observed in the case group. On this account, considering aforementioned herbal supplement as a definite MS treatment is beyond our study results, and thus out of reality. It is worth noting that this research project was barely a primary investigation and did have its own limitations; and the study confirmation requires further investigation. Therefore, the access to this herbal supplement will only be possible subsequent to further investigation, approval and licensing by Ministry of Health and Medical Education.
This declaration is for public clarification and preclusion of possible abuse.http://nsrc-en.tbzmed.ac.ir/?MID=21&Typ ... eID=1&id=2
