The purpose of this study was to investigate and evaluate the effectiveness of phytotherapy on a severe and complicated Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP) patient who had failed with conventional treatments. A male patient presented with clinical symptoms of ITP and had been treated with Corticosteroids, Azathioprine, Eltrombopag, and platelet transfusions for over three years. The patient had an initial response but later developed severe complications, including hydrothorax, gastric pain, hematuria, and digestive hemorrhage, and no further response to treatment. The patient then received Phytotherapy for 17 months which significantly improved the clinical symptoms, platelet counts, and laboratory tests. Despite his active lifestyle, the patient was symptom-free with platelet counts ranging from 109 to 132×109/L.

Zinc Iodide and Dimethyl Sulfoxide compositions are proposed as therapeutic agents to treat and prevent chronic and acute viral infections including SARS-CoV-2 infected patients. The therapeutic combinations have a wide range of virucidal effects on DNA and RNA containing viruses. The combinations also exhibit anti-inflammatory, immunomodulating, antifibrotic, antibacterial, antifungal and antioxidative effects. Given the fact that Zinc Iodide has been used as an oral antiseptic agent and DMSO has been already proven as a safe pharmaceutical solvent and therapeutic agent, we hypothesize that the combination of these two agents can be applied as an effective, safe and inexpensive treatment for SARS-CoV-2 and other viral infection. The therapeutic compound can be applied as both etiological and pathogenesis therapy and used as an effective and safe antiseptic (disinfectant) for human and animals as well.
