How effective are IPD capsules 100 from Japan (asthma, atopic dermatitis, allergic rhinitis)?
IPD capsules contain 100 mg of suplatast tosilate, a Th2 cytokine inhibitor. It works by inhibiting the infiltration of lymphocytes including CD4+ T cells into healthy tissues, like lungs or broncho-bronchiolar walls. As the result, IPD capsules prevent the expression of the allergic reaction without affecting the positivity for specific IgE antibodies against allergens.

IPD capsules 100 with suplatast tosilate are a new anti-allergic drug capable of down-regulating the functions of lymphocytes. They are effective against bronchial asthma, atopic dermatitis, allergic rhinitis, hyperimmunoglobulinemia E and Kimura’s disease. Studies show that treatment with a IPD capsules in steroid-dependent asthma improves pulmonary function and symptom control, and allows a decrease in dose of inhaled corticosteroid without significant side-effects (J. Tamaoki, M. Kondo, N. Sakai, et al. Effect of suplatast tosilate, a Th2 cytokine inhibitor, on steroid-dependent asthma: a double-blind randomised study // Lancet, 200, July, 356 (9226): 273–8). However, this medicine is not designed to rapidly alleviate already occurring asthma attacks or symptoms.
