Homeopathic Prevention and Management of Epidemic Diseases.

CONCLUSION:  Several different homeopathic methods can be used to treat epidemic diseases. The challenge for the future is to refine these approaches and to build on the knowledge base with additional rigorous trials. If and when conventional medicine runs out of options for treating epidemic diseases, homeopathy could be seen as an attractive alternative, but only if there is viable experimental evidence of its success.

Four species of ebolaviruses have been identified in west or equatorial Africa. Once the more virulent forms enter the human population, transmission occurs primarily through contact with infected body fluids and can result in major epidemics in under-resourced settings. These viruses cause a disease characterised by systemic viral r...

ConclusionDecontamination of sink drains with acetic acid is a valuable alternative to other methods, such as heated sinks and water-free care, especially when other options are not feasible in the short term. Acetic acid is cheap, widely available, effective and manageable from a safety and technical point of view.

Authors: Omar SAS, Serigne M, Niang AA Abstract An inter-epidemic oversight was conducted in the cutaneous leishmaniasis focus of Keur Moussa (Thies region) between June 2015 and October 2016, more than 20 years after the last epidemic. The three sampling methods (adhesive traps, CDC light traps, and indoor pyrethroids sprays) allowed the capture of 1,746 sand flies belonging to 2 genera and 24 species, those involved in the transmission of leishmaniasis in Senegal, as well as 11 new species for the focus. The vector of human cutaneous leishmaniasis in Senegal, Phlebotomus duboscqi Neveu-Lemaire, 1906, represents 1...
