Abstract

The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the cysticidal activities of Ruta graveolens and calcium phosphate in fractional dilutions as a completely new approach for the treatment of neurocysticercosis in humans. These two homeopathic medicines when given to patients with neurocysticercosis have cured the infection in 25 subjects (69.4%) from a total of 36 patients. Our preliminary results indicate that Ruta graveolens in combination with calcium phosphate must be considered to be a potent cysticidal agent with very little or no side effects.
