Homeopathy cancer trials
There is lots of interesting work and studies going on in India at the present, using low potency homeopathy in the treatment of cancer. This one caught my eye as it referred to pancreatic cancer and an outcome of 38.64% 5 year survival of stage 111 and 1V patients which is considerably better than the 6% present outcome across all stages with standard medication. Also all the trial patients have had no chemo or radiotherapy, but were biopsied to confirm diagnosis. So there is good evidence out there for alternative approaches
I will periodically reference as many as I can, and can report good outcomes using a blend from a similar trial done for gliomas that I have used. I will publish the link when I can find it!!

We prospectively studied the clinical efficacy of an alternative cancer treatment “Psorinum Therapy” in treating stomach, gall bladder, pancreatic and liver cancers. Our study was observational, open level and single arm. The participants’ eligibility criteria included histopathology/cytopathology confirmation of malignancy, inoperable tumor, and no prior chemotherapy or radiation therapy. The primary outcome measures of the study were (i) to assess the radiological tumour response (ii) to find out how many participants survived at least 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, 4 years and finally 5 years after the beginning of the study considering each type of cancer. Psorinum-6x was administered orally to all the participants up to 0.02 ml/Kg body weight as a single dose in empty stomach per day for 2 years along with allopathic and homeopathic supportive cares. 158 participants (42 of stomach, 40 of gall bladder, 44 of pancreatic, 32 of liver) were included in the final analysis of the study. Complete tumor response occurred in 28 (17.72%) cases and partial tumor response occurred in 56 (35.44%) cases. Double-blind randomized controlled clinical trial should be conducted for further scientific exploration of this alternative cancer treatment.
