Classical homoeopathy versus conventional treatments : A systematic Review
Journal/Book: Perfusion. 1999; 12: 13-15.
Abstract: An important meta-analysis has suggested that the clinical effects of homoeopathic remedies cannot be fully explained by placebo effects. Thus it is relevant to ask whether such remedies are equally effective as conventional drug treatments. This question was addressed by a systematic review. Various literature searches located six comparative trials. All were burdened with serious methodological flaws. The results of these trials are non-uniform. A clear trend is not visible. It is concluded that at present the relative efficacy of homoeopathic remedies is not known.
