Homeopathy again: a questionable meta-analysis.
A meta-analysis published in the Lancet in September 1997 cautiously concluded that homeopathic drug activity is not fully explained by the placebo effect. A thorough examination of this meta-analysis reveals design errors that make the results untrustworthy. There is still nothing to suggest that homeopathic drugs are any more effective than a placebo.
