This study found no evidence that active homeopathy was effective in reducing the symptoms of joint inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Stated in the last paragraph: "Over these years we have come to believe that conventional RCTs are unlikely to capture the possible benefits of homeopathy…It seems more important to define if homeopathists can genuinely control patients' symptoms and less relevant to have concerns about whether this is due to a 'genuine' effect or to influencing the placebo response." P. Fisher and D. Scott (Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital), Rheumatology (2001) [ NOTE: Dr Peter Fisher is homeopath to HM Queen Elizabeth II ]
