Around two million people have developed AIDS in the past decade and around 10 million have been infected by Human Immuno Deficiency Virus (HIV) which causes it, according to the WHO. Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy is sparing no effort in tackle the much dreaded disease. The success rate of CCRH is about 10 percent. The occurrence of serological reversal in 10 percent cases reported may occur however for various reasons. In some asymptomatic HIV carriers, anti-HIV antibodies disappear or their titre becomes so low that they are not detectable through ELISA or Western Blot test or if significant population of B cells are infected, they may cease antibody production activity. Because of these reasons RRIs seroconversion rate (12 out of 129) which is about 10 percent becomes insignificant. There is a possibility that a person is relieved of circulating viral burden under the influence of Homoeopathic drugs and the antibodies declined significantly, causing a non-reactive ELISA ,accepts RRI sources. An absence of a control group in any research project created doubt that the results may be natural and not due to the medicines tried, reports Dr. Vijay Bhusan. Dr. Rastogi, the Director of CCRH is willing to conduct trials now on a control basis which will make results authentic and claim world wide success. Warts are generally considered sycotic only and hence the prescription of Thuja is common among novice homoeopaths. Dr. Vijay Bhusan reports a case where Tuberculinum helped the patient wherein the commonly used sycotic remedies failed. A few other cases of warts are described. A case of severe orthopnoea was treated with Cina based on the fact that the patient had Eosinophilia in the past. An interview of Dr. M. Abdul Latif by the editor carries the dictum Be a single remedy prescriber and a patient doctor. (Do not be impatient by using polypharmacy to make a fast buck.)

Homoeopathy Today, this monthly publication of the National Center for Homoeopathy (801, Fairfax Street, 306, Alexandria VA 22314) along with Resonance, the bi-monthly magazine of the International Foundation for Homoeopathy (2366 East Lake Avenue, 325 Seattle WA) is this reporters main source of information on homoeopathy in America. He wishes there were available Indian Homoeopathic libraries so that they could be availed of by the numerous Indian Homoeopaths who writes to the undersigned desiring personal accounts of Homoeopathy in America. We will try to provide more of that in these reports.

Every issue carries ads and notices of lectures and courses; the latter are usually aimed at the general public or professionals already liscensed to practice some form of medicine. there are no specific homoeopathic educational facilities in America that lead to the aquisation of a license to practice homoeopathy. the closest access is through the schools of naturopathic medicine in which homoeopathy is a department; the ND degree is accepted in only some of the states.

The publication pays keen attention to the appearance of homoeopathy in the media and its budding place in the official structure via the office of Alternative Medicine in the NIH and in medical school curriculum. Studies in Repertory and Materia Medica are found both in articles and reports on seminars as the Louis Klein RS Hom, Clinical Application of Homoeopathy Seminar held in January 1994 (July - Aug 1994) and the Mellisa Assilem Seminar in Boston which presented the remedy, Folliculinum made from synthetic estrogen. (June 1994)

A Monthly Newspaper published by Dr Manish Bhartiya,
ED- 94, Tagore Garden, New Delhi-27

Cover article: Dr Sushil Vats decries the ongoing feud between Principal, Nehru Hom Medical College, New Delhi and the Executive Committee of CCH. The decision of CCH to issue a public notice that the advertisement by College calling for applications to BHMS admissions was done without CCH permission and so recognition to the College has been withdrawn! This feud has compromised both the institutions. The above public notice seems to have been issued (but without issuing show cause notice to the Delhi state Govt) as the college is stated to be short of regular teachers and run with honorary lecturers. Whatever be the real story, this episode does not augur well for propagation of Homeopathy or for the reputation of Govt Homeopathic colleges.

In his editorial Dr Manish Bhartiya draws attention to the proposal of Delhi allopathic fraternity for conducting regular CME programmes for the allopathic doctors and urges that similar programmes are also very necessary for the homoeopaths. (ICR, NJH and IIHP and others have been conducting such CME's for the past few years at Mumbai, with much benefit to the participants.)

Dr Vinit Monga stresses the importance of obtaining family history while treating chronic diseases; this allows interpretation of the miasmatic background, so necessary to treat pt.
