TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- An Iranian health official said that his country will announce good news about success in developing a new medicine in the coming Ten Day Dawn – from February 1-11 (marking the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979).
Hessamoddin Madani, director of the health ministry’s team for the Iran-made anti-AIDS drug (IMOD), said that the ministry is conducting studies to develop 22 new drugs.
He further called on the government to render increased spiritual and material support to researchers.
After 7 long years of arduous work, Iranian scientists last February introduced a herbal medicine which cures Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).
“The drug named ‘IMOD’ is completely effective and safe with no proved side effects,” Madani said.
The Iranian AIDS drug strengthens immunity system of the patients against HIV and provides a more qualitative life for the affected population.
“One IMOD injection produces effects for 21 months, meaning that the patient will not need any medication for 21 months,” Madani said.
“The herbal drug prolongs patient’s life by 5 years,” he added.
