Introduction / Background
Clinical study of Homeopathic remedy Arsenic Album 200C in reducing side effects caused during Chemotherapy regimens.
Chemotherapy is a systemic treatment using chemicals to destroy proliferating cells. In its advantages and disadvantages, it not only kills rapidly dividing abnormal cells but also kills normal cells of the bone marrow, digestive tract, skin & mucous membrane. Thereby causing disturbance in Gastrointestinal, Neuropathic, Dermatological and Psychological functions affecting quality of life of the patient.
Homoeopathy is one of the pathies used to reduce side effects of Radiotherapy/ Chemotherapy & during palliative stage of the disease
Following ethical principles of clinical research in Homoeopathy the authors conducted an observational study using Arsenic Album 200C for reduction of side effects caused during chemotherapy regimens.
Clinical observational study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy and effectiveness of Arsenic Album 200C in reducing side effects caused due to chemotherapeutic drugs and improving quality of life in these patients.
