Abstract A herbal formula, Badmaev 28, was evaluated in the treatment of an induced attack in a chronic relapsing model of experimental allergic encephalomyelitis (EAE) in SJL/J mice. Chronic EAE was induced by immunization of 8 week old mice with an emulsion of syngeneic spinal cords with incomplete Freund's adjuvant supplemented with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Therapy with Badmaev 28 was started on day 25 after the immunization, and the formula was administered in the drinking water at doses of 7, 21, 83 and 166 mg/kg/day. The treatment resulted in significantly decreased mortality compared with the untreated control animals and the therapeutic effect occurred in one experiment in a dose-dependent fashion. Based on the experimental results it is difficult to name one particular mechanism responsible for the therapeutic effectiveness of the formula in the EAE model. Rather this protective effect could be explained by a broad protective mechanism of action discussed in the literature as nonspecific resistance (NSR) to the diversified biological and psychological stressors. The increase in NSR characterizes the action of pharmacological compounds termed adaptogens or bioprotectants.
