Abstract:   (23564 Views)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Vitiligo is an auto immune disease in which immune system with unknown reasons attacks self melanocytes which are pigment producing cells determining the color of the skin. In patient with Vitiligo, due to the absent of melonocytes the skin has a white color in some part of the body. In this article we try to point out to some important research and treatment hints that could be inferred from holy Quran.
METHODS: In this review article by referring to verse 49 of Surah Al Omran and verse 101 of Surah Al Maidah from the Holy Quran and also by bringing up some experimental evidence, the problems in the field of autoimmunity are discussed. Moreover, some new research hints (in this field) are suggested.
FINDINGS: These hints include: 1-Vitiligo is a prevalent and well popularly known disease at least from 2000 years earlier. 2-Research and treatment of autoimmune diseases should be a tough achievement so that God considered it as a miracle equal to giving life and curing the congenitally blindness in holy Quran. Furthermore despite the outstanding progresses in science and technology, human were not able to cure successfully autoimmune diseases in general and Vitiligo specifically. 3-The risk factors for this disease should be existed since long time and not just originated from the industrial life style and climate or environmental changes which happened in human modern life. Our research activity should be focused on the ubiquitous and evolutionary conserved factors such as heat shock proteins that accompany human being for a long time of his history.
CONCLUSION: The treatment and research in the field of autoimmunity are tough area but accessible if we insist and patients are inspired by hope to God helps as also mentioned by the verse 269 of Bagharat Surah to achieve indications of Verse 18 of Al-Omran Surah in which God, angels and scientists are introduced as proofs of uniqueness of God.
Keywords: Holy Quran, Autoimmunity, Vitiligo, Immunological homunculus.
