Homeopathic Research Institute review of Research: Homeopathy and Influenza

1830 – Matthias Marenzeller conducted the first clinical trials on homeopath at the Garrison Hospital in Vienna, and he undertook provings and administered veratrum album to 50,000 patients in Vienna, thereby preventing them from catching Cholera.

1849 – Jean Paul Tessier conducted clinical trials into homeopathy at the St. Marguerite Hospital in Beaujohn in Paris, successfully treating pneumonia and cholera. The results of these clinical trials were so startling in favour of homeopathy, the mortality rate under homeopathy dropped dramatically from 33% to 7.6%, that Jean Paul Tessier was immediately vilified by his allopathic colleagues, who blocked him from further promotion and progression in his chosen profession.
