Introduction Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is known as a relative term including various health-care methods, which are considered “other than” conventional medicine. Treatments like traditional Chinese medicine

Abstract  

In this article we analyse how research on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) break through into one established scientific arena, namely academic journals. With help from bibliometric methods we analyse publication of CAM articles, in the Medline database, during the period 1966–2007. We also analyse the general content of the articles and in what journals they get published. We conclude that the publication activity of CAM articles increases rapidly, especially in the late 1990s, and that the changing growth rate is not due to the general expansion of Medline. The character of CAM articles has changed towards more clinical oriented research, especially in subfields such as acupuncture and musculoskeletal manipulations. CAM articles are found both in core clinical journals and in specialized CAM journals. Even though a substantial part of the articles are published in CAM journals, we conclude that the increasing publication activity is not restricted to the expansion of these specialized journals.

A szárazsó-belégzés a sóbányák egészségre hasznos klímáját reprodukálja mesterséges környezetben. Lényege, hogy a vegytiszta nátrium-klorid-kristályokat 3 µm-nél kisebb átmérőjű szemcsékké őrlik és elporlasztva egy kellemesen hűvös és alacsony relatív páratartalmú szoba levegőjébe fújják, amíg annak koncentrációja 10–30 mg/m3 lesz a szoba levegőjében. A beteg (vagy egészséges) személyek ezt lélegzik be 30–60 percen keresztül, általában kúraszerűen 10–20 egymás utáni alkalommal. A belélegzett só ozmózisos nyomása révén csökkenti a nyálkahártya-ödémát, mérsékli annak gyulladását, hígabbá teszi a váladékot, könnyíti és gyorsítja annak kiürítését (ezáltal a légszennyező anyagok és allergének eltávolítását is), gátolja a baktériumok növekedését, sőt elpusztítja azok egy részét és fokozza a fagocitaaktivitást. Kedvező hatással van a betegek közérzetére (relaxációs hatású), megelőzi vagy legalább ritkábbá teszi a légúti gyulladásokat, sőt a kóros légzésfunkciós értékeket is javítja. Jelentősen mérsékli a hörgő-hiperreaktivitás mértékét, ami a gyulladás csökkenésére utal. Nem csupán az alsó légúti gyulladások kezelésére alkalmas, hanem a heveny és idült felső légútiakéra is. Kedvező hatása néhány idült bőrbetegségben (például atopiás dermatitis, psoriasis, pyoderma) is bizonyított. E kezelés (Indisó néven) orvosi ellenőrzés mellett Magyarországon is hozzáférhető. Orv.

Extended research has been carried out to clarify the ecological role of plant secondary metabolites (SMs). Although their primary ecological function is self-defence, bioactive compounds have long been used in alternative medicine or in biological control of pests. One single plant may contain a wide variety of bioactive compounds, making analytics rather costly. The total bactericide capacity can be quantified by either microbiological or ecotoxicological methods. Here, the principle and possible applications of a specific bacterial bioluminescence inhibition based ecotoxicological assay are reviewed.

Abstract  

Chinese herbs are accepted as an alternative medicine for specific treatment of illness. It is important to know the contents of these herbs that might cause gene mutation. Ten most popular herbs used in Malaysia were analyzed by instrumental neutron activation analysis. A total of 16 trace and major elements were determined and the concentration of elements varied depending on the origin of the herb. The study showed that the toxic elements found in the samples were below the levels prescribed by health regulations. The mutagenicity test showed that there was no toxic effect due to the heavy metals present in the herbs.
