Homoeopathic treatment of malaria in GhanaOpen study and clinical trial
11 July 2018 (online)
In a clinic in Tamale (Ghana, Northern Region) patients with malaria were treated with homoeopathic drugs in an open study (n=75), of whom 90.7% (n=68) showed clinical improvement.
Subsequently in a randomized, double-blind, clinical trial, one group (n=30) received homoeopathic drugs, of which 83.3% improved clinically, whereas the other group (n=25) received chloroquine with improvement in 72% patients. This difference is not statistically significant due to the limited samples. The results do, however, suggest further research with larger groups.
