Mahe Alam*, Mustehasan, Hakimuddin Khan and Misbahuddin Azhar

ABSTRACT

Filariasis (Daul feel) is the name for a group of tropical diseases caused by various thread like parasite round worms (nematodes) and their larvae. The larvae transmit the disease to humans through a mosquito bite. Filariasis is characterized by fever, chills, headache, and skin lesions in the early stages and if untreated, can progress to include gross enlargement of limbs and genitalia in a condition called elephantiasis, while filariasis is rarely fatal. The infections have a significant economic and psychological impact in endemic areas, disfiguring, as more than 40 million persons worldwide are physically incapacitated and disfigured by chronic lymphatic filariasis, it is also a disease that prevents patients from having a normal working life. Thus, the fight to eliminate lymphatic filariasis is also a fight against poverty. The world Health organization (WHO) has named filariasis one of only six “potentially eradicable” infectious diseases, and has embarked upon a 290 years campaign to eradicate the disease. Strategy for Elimination of Lymphatic Filariasis Lymphatic filariasis seems to be eradicated with the advent of costeffective control strategies. Hence, the World Health Organization (WHO) launched a Global Programme to Eliminate Lymphatic Filariasis as a public health problem by the year 2020 and India is a signatory to it. India has set its target for national elimination by the year 2015. According to the Unani System of Medicine, this disease cause by the derangement of humours like, Bulgham, Safra and Sauda. Many Unani drugs have been used in the treatment of Daul Feel with very low degree of successes. As no comprehensive drugs are available to supplement such problem.

Keywords: Daul feel, Filariasis, Diethylcarbamazine (DEC), Diagnosis and Prevention.
