En meta-analys av placebokontrollerade studier

Meta analysen visar att homeopatisk medicin är verksam men ytterligare forskning behövs.

INTERPRETATION: The results of our meta-analysis are not compatible with the hypothesis that the clinical effects of homeopathy are completely due to placebo. However, we found insufficient evidence from these studies that homeopathy is clearly efficacious for any single clinical condition. Further research on homeopathy is warranted provided it is rigorous and systematic.
