Tehran, Feb 12, IRNA - Secretary of the Iranian Pharmacists Society Saeed Vaqefi said Monday that the newly discovered Iranian herbal medicine for HIV/AIDS is set to enter the domestic market within two months.
Speaking to IRNA, the official said that the government was planning certain financial measures to give AIDS sufferers access to the medicine free of charge.
The medicine, called IMOD, was developed from locally grown medicinal plants by young Iranian scientists in 15 different research centers after four to five years of hard work.
The drug, which has been tested on 200 volunteer patients, is effective in controlling the spread of HIV/AIDS virus in the blood system and increases an infected person's immunity.
Produced through nano technology, the IMOD is the fifth generation of medicines invented to combat AIDS in the world.
According to Minister of Health Kamran Baqeri Lankarani, the herbal HIV/AIDS medicine will soon be licensed for sale in European countries.
