Abstract: The present study was carried out in the Clinical Research Unit of Majeedia Hospital, Jamia Hamdard, New Delhi during 1996-1998. The aim and objective of the study was to develop safe and effective treatment of urticaria from herbal sources. In this double blind study, patients of chronic urticaria were randomly allocated to receive either Pitkirya, a poly herbal formulation or placebo, two capsules daily for 4 weeks. Pitkirya treatment significantly reduced all the symptoms of chronic urticaria without producing any serious side effects. Statistically significant difference was found between the results of Pitkirya and placebo, Pitkirya was found to be much superior over the placebo. Clinical and laboratory parameters showed the efficacy and safety of Pitkirya, which was found to be highly effective and safe drug for the treatment of urticaria.
