PREVENTION AND TREATMENT OF DENGUE FEVER BY HOMOEOPATHIC RESEARCH: REVIEW
Dengue is ranked as the world's most severe mosquito-borne infectious disease, with a 30-fold rise in its prevalence over the past 50 years. The dengue/dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF) outbreak is a global public health crisis that poses substantial health and economic burden. The shortage of vaccines and antiviral medications to prevent and control this epidemic further complicates the dengue crisis. This systematic analysis discusses and compares numerous trials in homoeopathic medicine for dengue fever prevention and treatment. As a double-blind placebo-controlled experiment, a comparative research study, a case study and two community-based trials, a literary search through multiple databases helped find a few important studies. Good findings for the role of homoeopathic drugs as a prophylactic medication were identified in community-based trials. There was no difference in results between the two groups in the double-blind, placebo-controlled experiment. A retrospective clinical analysis found that, as opposed to conventional maintenance care, the homoeopathic mixture proved to be a more potent treatment against dengue fever. The case analysis indicates positive outcomes, but there are only 10 cases in the sample size. Conclusion To confirm the success of homoeopathic therapeutics, high-quality randomised controlled trial (RCT), vitro and animal model trials are needed in the future.
