In the present study, clinical efficacy of two coded Unani drug combinations, UNIM-268 and UNIM-269 was evaluated with and without Munzij and Mushil therapy (MMT) on the patients of lymphatic filariasis (Da'ul Feel) at Regional Research Institute of Unani Medicine, Patna. Out of all the patients of Da’ul Feel registered during 2009-2011, seventy one cases completed the trial. The comparison between clinical and pathological findings of all the four groups before and after the treatment suggested that both the combinations are effective in the treatment of filariasis. However, the effect of UNIM-268 and UNIM-269 on lymphoedema was comparatively pronounced when used after Munzij and Mushil therapy.
