In the Conference Programme hear from:
Jeremy Sherr, Tanzania and Alastair Gray, Australia who will be sharing their latest insights into provings. Dr Ghada Alsaleh from France looks at in vitro testing of highly diluted cytokines and specific nucleotide acid sequences applied in micro-immunotherapy for rheumatoid arthritis. Dr Sandra Salles from Brazil describes a protocol for prevention and treatment of dengue fever and its complications.
Dr David Brule of Canada charts the feasibility and design of an open label pilot study of homeopathic treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Dr Laurence Terzan from France looks at the impact in term of public health of the sleep, anxiety and depressive disorders management by physicians prescribing homeopathic medicine in France. Dr Wilkens of Germany reports on a cohort study on the treatment of nervous complaints and exhaustion with the homeopathic medicinal product Manuia. Dr Thomas Ostermann, Germany describes in-vitro experiments to investigate the effects of homeopathic drugs for chronic aggressive periodontitis by lymphocyte migration activity.
Dr José Enrique Eizayaga, from the Universidad Maimonides in Argentina. He examines, sensitivity, specificity and likelihood ratio of symptoms in patients with good therapeutic response to Lycopodium, compared to patients with good response to treatment with other homeopathic medicines.
Dr Lex Rutten, from the Netherlands explores different statistical traditions. Because RCT evidence does not allows other conclusions, the patient can only expect a yes-or-no statement about efficacy of conventional medicines. But this answer might still be false in his particular case. Other factors, like correct diagnosis, genetic susceptibility and comorbidity, also determine if the medicine works. The diagnostic process preceding the prescription is Bayesian and renders the probability of a specific diagnosis.
