GUEST,Bagpuss BS: Hooray For Heimlich!!! (26) RE: BS: Hooray For Heimlich!!! 16 Apr 03


From what little I have read, this work seems very contraversial and I'm not sure if all of that is pressure from the drug companies. Heimlich has been working on malariotherapy since the early 80's as a possible treatment for cancer, AIDS and Lyme Disease, but I have never read anything more promising than small studies with indications that it may be promising, rather than full scale trials.

There is an awful lot of medical research that gets to the 'promising' stage and is blasted around the media as the next big thing, but unfortunately fails to get the confirming evidence as research progresses. So I won't be getting any hopes up about this one just yet.
