Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    A review of homeopathy for childhood and adolescence ailments

    Researchers from the department of complementary medicine at the University of Exeter in the UK evaluated the results of 91 studies.

    Here are the their findings where more than one study was available.
    With the exception of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and acute childhood diarrhea (each tested in 3 trials), no condition was assessed in more than 2 double-blind randomized clinical trials.

    • Evidence for ADHD and acute childhood diarrhea was mixed, with positive and negative results.
    • For adenoid vegetation, asthma, and upper respiratory tract infection there was no difference compared with placebo.
