arm-e-Kabid Haad Vairoosi (Acute Viral Hepatitis) is usually caused by one or more of the five viral agents. Among all hepatitis viruses, Hepatitis-B virus is one of the most grievous viral infection which may culminate in liver cirrhosis, carcinoma of the liver or fulminant hepatitis leading to death. In Unani Medicine, plants as a whole or their parts are extensively used for the cure of liver derangements. They are likely to be effective and much safer. In the present study, a comparative therapeutic evaluation of kabdeen and Liv-52 in 20 patients of Warm-e-Kabid Vairoosi (viral hepatitis B) was done. The study shows that the Unani Test Formulation ‘Kabdeen’ produces significant improvement in cases of Hepatitis-B. Comparison of Kabdeen with the standard agent Liv-52 shows that in the most parameters, the latter is more effective while in some parameters
Kabdeen is more effective.
