Abstract

Daul-Feel (Lymphatic Filariasis) is characterised by swelling of the feet and calf in which the affected leg becomes extremely swollen in advanced stage which resembles the leg of an elephant. According to the Unani System of Medicine, this disease cause by the derangement of temperament or humours like, Bulgham, Safra and Sauda. Nuzj (concoction) is the process through which the consistency of morbid matter is changed by the administration of Munzijat (concoctive) of respective humour or temperament to make it easy to be removed from the body. The aim of this study to find out the significant factors as Biochemical Parameters and Personal Characteristics associated with the Nuzj (concoction) appearance in urine. Patients registered at RRIUM, Patna and complaining of the limb swelling with present or post history of limb redness were screened for the clinical evidences of the disease. UNIM-MUNB (Munzij) was administered to the patients for 10 to 15 days according to chronicity of disease or till the appearance of Nuzj in the urine. GLM model used to determine the association of biochemical parameters and personal characteristics with the Nuzj appearance days in urine. This study concluded that Nuzj associated with the Age, Sex and Biochemical Parameters in cases of Daul-Feel (Lymphatic Filariasis).
