Abstract:
This review focuses on the efficacy of Setarud (IMOD) that is an effective new drug in the management of different conditions in animal and human. IMOD is a new natural mixture that demonstrated immune modulating activity in preliminary investigations. To conduct this review, all relevant databases were searched up to 20th August 2011 for the term IMOD or Setarud and all human, animal and in vitro studies considered the effects of IMOD. A total of 13 studies were included. Some human studies showed anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative stress effects of IMOD by lowering tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) and CD4 (a glycoprotein expressed on the surface of T helper cells, monocytes, macrophages and dendritic cells) that are involved in process of inflammation and oxidative stress consequences. The positive effects of IMOD in the control of experimental models of colitis, diabetes, hyperchlosteromia, polycyctic ovary syndrome and liver injury were found that were mediated mainly through antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. IMOD has also enhanced secretion of insulin from the rat isolated pancreatic islets and human B lymphocyte. It is concluded that IMOD has optimistic effects on oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory conditions in various diseases which most probably is resulted from combinational effects of herbs and the elements present in the mixture of IMOD.
